Hi Everyone,

Just found this forum to read up on my new TW200, have lots of reading to do


This bike is the first one I have owned since I was a kid, and am excited to get back into riding. I had couple bikes as a kid on my grandparents farm, First one was a 1974 CT70. Loved the bike even though it was goofy looking, but it was bullet proof. Second bike was a Kawasaki 100 trail bike.

So after 25 years being away from riding, I am looking forward to getting back at it, and it looks like I picked the right bike to do that.

Welcome Margo. You sure did pick the right bike. I just picked up a 95 2 weeks ago. Looking forward to a break in the cold to go over it. There is a huge amount of information on this site. What makes it even better, is I have found everyone here to be extremely helpful. You are going to love your bike. Rubber side down, Dave

Hi fellow Albertan's


Question to all Canucks out there, I read all the discussion of changing out the front tire, and have decided to go with the Kendra 270 5.10 18, I have searched for this and have not been able to find a canadian retailer. Found some US sites that will ship to Canada, but the shipping costs are $60 on average. ANyone locate this tire in Canada? Also, from what I read this shows as a rear tire, assume from all the discussion that it will work on front. just want to verify as I am new to bike tires.



Any info is appreciated

Mostly on road but have been to Maclean Creek a couple of times.Have to find somewhere where it's not as busy.If you go to Maclean(or any other public off road area)make sure you are registered and insured because they do check.Maybe we'll cross paths one day,I'm in Woodbine.

Welcome to one of the most inviting forums on the Web, Margo. I'm not a true Canook but I lived for a while in Ft Nelson, BC back in the '60s and 20 years in Minot and Bismarck, ND. Still enjoying your TW - do you winter ride?

Ya, I would definitely like to find a place that was not busy, give me the space to learn how to handle the bike. I am just in the process of getting insurance and plates..and I got to say wasn't expecting the price of insurance for a non licensed rider. almost 500 for liability and theft.. ouch. but its a necessary evil b/c I can't get licensed without insurance. The good thing is once I have my class 6 full insurance drops to 400 /year.



We might just cross paths, I am over in Acadia. Will keep a look out on the roads for you once the snow goes.
