Nice pics! Looks beautiful over there. I hope you dont ride offroad with that front tire... :eek:
Haha, Yes I do .. It's the stock front tyre .. But it's passed his days .. Im waiting for Bridgestone Trail Wing 302 to replace it ;)
The stock tyre is really a GREAT tyre..

More great pictures, thanks. I love seeing TW's in far off places, it's very interesting. I like seeing the differences in the bikes and the countryside. Any time you want to put up a picture be it a gas station, in front of a cafe, in a workshop, etc., please do it. I for one am going to click on it.

I was so intent on looking at your pictures I didn't initially see the question. Personally, I'd leave that little 125 alone. Why make it a 200 and go to all that work and expense? I'm pretty in to these machines, and as such spend a lot of time looking and reading. I've seen some amazing riding done on the 125's. It's sort of like this. I have two jeeps, one is a TJ with a V8 and the other is a Willys flat fender with a little, and I mean little, four cylinder engine. Truth be told, with skillful handling I can get that little 4 popper most places the V8 will go. And most of the time I have more fun doing it. That stunt video I put up the other day has 125's in it. They don't look under-powered to me :D

macbig2k1 on this forum could give you a few tips for upping the performance of your 125 without the need for an engine swap. (then again, he might just encourage you to swap the engine, I don't know) I posted a video in another thread for you.

Yeah, that's kind of true .. Mine does 100/110Kmh .. Can't take it any further .. I want a 200cc engine becaus, probably it will have more top speed and more torque to maintain that 100Km/h speed ..
Do you know how I can tune my little 125cc engine? Just to give it a little more "life".

I have myself a 4WD, it's an Nissan Patrol GR Y60, 6 cilinder engine with 115bhp. It's a greeeeat ride!

Thanks again for come see my post :D
