Ridgeline,



Yours looks great and I don’t think Dubster will ever have to worry about falling over – those pontoons should keep him safe (and afloat) wherever he goes.




I like your front rack.



Thanks for posting pictures!

HA HA the funny thing is the two times(so far) that I tipped her over I didn't have the panniers attached.In fact the last time we were out for a run I had taken the side bags off and put the top box on and even though the bike handled much better this is what happened:





Those panniers affect the handling and get in the way and won't be going on any more serious runs.Good for the open road and road trips only.They will come in handy when TBob and I head to Labrador next summer>



Thanks for the pictures ridgeline.By the looks of your lawn you better stop having so much on the TW and get the mower out before your Significant Other lays the law down!




TBob finally got his charging issues fixed and his bike is up and running.We should get out again soon for a run.

I deleted the video until I can figure out how to post one without being able to access all my other pictures.



And Bob was itching so bad he put his raingear on yesterday and went for a ride.



My bike is apart in the garage right now.I am waiting on carb parts so I took advantage of the down time and installed handwarmers yesterday.Can't be getting my hands cold this winter.


I am also waiting for the mount to arrive for my stabilizer.It is in the mail and should arrive early next week.I should have have her back on the road next week.

Just let your present riding buddies and anyone else you trust take the T-dub for a ride.Chances are you will "hook" some of them and have TW riding buddies in no time.



I let T-Bob,my brother-in -law, take mine for a ride and he started looking to buy one right away.T-Bob is a die hard Harley rider who owns an 03 Road-King Screaming Eagle that has been getting a little dusty since he got the mighty TW.




PS: How do you think the Moto-Mule would have handeled that spill?

Nice pics! Seems like there are quite a few of us around here. I'm in Timberlea and I've also seen someone else out this way with a TW. I'm finally through my break in period and am ready to get off road. These are right up behind my house, near the 103. First time off the pavement.

I've fallen over at low speed a few times with the moto-mule attached, no issues! I did slide out pretty good on my Husaberg one time with the trailer attached, it scratched up the case a bit but didn't hurt it. The scariest thing with the trailer attached is climbing a knarly hill and not being able to make it... You have to be careful not to jack-knife it while backing down... ruts are your friend in that situation! I've had to detach it a couple times to turn around in really tight single track. But for most dual sport riding it is great!

It's a 2011, actually. I guess they didn't change the decals for those two years. Yeah, those are cannisters for extra gas on the front; I stole the idea from TW-Brian on these forums. I get asked about them all the time. I like telling people they're for the nitro boost.




I'd be up for a ride sometime although my next few weekends are already shot. I grew up in Cape Breton so, while I can ride around in the woods for weeks there, I don't know where any trails are in the HRM and surrounding area...

if you dont mind could you post where you got the brackets for your gas canisters and if your plans change next weekend a couple of us are going on a run next weekend from musquodoboit harbour to mooseland and you are more than welcome to join us it should be a good trip

Thanks for the offer but heading to Cape Breton on Friday. I'm taking the TW with me though; I can't wait!



I made the brackets similar to TW-Brian in this thread. The clamps are Quick Fist clamps from End of the Road. The cannisters I just picked up at Mountain Equipment Co-op downtown. I went with red to better match the 2011 TW graphics and I mount them upside-down in the clamps to avoid the signal lights. I'll get some better pics to put up although I don't want to show too much detail as it'll reveal my shoddy workmanship!
