Hi everybody!!!



I just picked up my TW200 today and I can't to get out on the trails.

I'm reading your articles on tyres right now, some radical looking tread patterns!!!



Speak soon.

I wondered if I'd get picked up for tyres!!


I'm from Wiltshire in England.

In the UK we only have the TW125 because of licence law, (125cc limit without a passing the test)

The TW200 is a very rare beast indeed, the one I have just bought is the first one I have seen.

It is a direct import from Japan and is very clean with 4000kms.



The TW is not the obvious choice for trail riders here.

People seem to go straight for XR and DRZ etc.

I tried a KDX200 a few weeks ago and it was lethal!!!


Then I tried this TW200 on some gravel lanes and was really nice.



I'm really looking forward to making some luggage racks and fitting some crazy tyres!!!

Trying to get good tyres here will be a challenge.

Europe has several sets of tires for the TW that are not imported to the Americas. Hook up with Sebastian at http://www.tw-parts.com.


Looks like the original TW32 and 34 is not available in Europe.

The Dunlop K108 is readily available but wouldn't be my first choice.

Vee Rubber looks the best alternative, I'll ask at the tyre shop on Monday.



Thanks Qwerty.
