Hello everyone. Never owned a Tw 200 but have ben eyeing them up for a while.

I have had bikes in the past such as Suzuki rv90, which was great for what it was used for.

I am wanting another bike mostly for trail riding, and maybe insured once in a while.

How is the Tw for just trail riding. I like the Honda Fat cat as well. I am by no means a

bike fanatic, and do not have much to personaly go on to compare with. HAs anyone ever ridden both?

Well first off, welcome to the best forum on the net! Second, you just have to get a TW, as i feel its the best dual-sport for trail riding out there. I have had Honda XL 125 and XL500 and for a few years rode a YZ125. But for a road legal trail machine the TW tops all i have ever tried. They are very stable and enough torque to climb long as you have grip. I have always found the higher cc machines to spin out and break loose at the worst times. I have had my 09 for just over a year and 1100kms, and so far no spills. The wife now doubles with me most rides and that little bike has taken us over some serious trails. There was a few mods done, like oring chain and a slight gear change, but mostly stock and all seems well. The fact they have made few changes since it came on the market in 1987 says alot for its durability, not many other models have had the run of the TWs.



Best of luck with your choice of bike and hope to see a pic of you and your new bike posted on here soon.
