    TW reviews don't come along very often, here's a pretty nice one.



    If you have found one, share it with us, we all love to read about our little bikes!

    Hey, we made the papers!

    To read the comments on TW200forum.com, a website of hard-core TW devotees


    Sounds like they pretty much "get it" when it comes to the mighty TW.



    Thanks for posting, I hadn't seen this review before.

    I like the end where they list maintenance labor costs -- OMG! $240??? This is a DIY maintenance bike if ever there was one and what kind of people do they think buy TW's?

    "On the torquey Yamaha TW200, it was simply a matter of popping it into second

    gear and holding the throttle open. It rode through and over

    obstacles like a two-wheeled tank."

    My only criticism of the entire article



    "The TW200’s seat is long, narrow and well padded. It offers

    a high degree of comfort for lengthy expeditions,..........."



    These guys are used to testing full-on dirtbikes, so I suppose the torture device installed on Tw's probably does feel couch-like to them. lol.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    I think we all are the same when it comes to our unique little bikes. WE ALL LOVE TO READ ABOUT THEM! I think they never really got the recognition that they deserve in the motorcycle world. Of course to anyone who owns one, they quickly become a favorite in the stable. Funny thing is..all it takes is one ride and you somehow know everything feels right on this bike. almost.



    For most riders, the only change would be higher bars or risers, some decent pegs, and a slight carburator adjustment and you got a great bike.



    Here is another article from CycleWorld that TW-Brian found.

    If anyone else have found any articles about TW's, please post them.

    That is a good review to be so current. Most people are blinded by innovation to enjoy the simple things.
