Air them way down and the grip goes way up and the ride gets much better.

When I had my TW, I did 750 miles in the pine barrens on it and never fell down, despite going places I would not have taken any other bike, just because it would have been a pain in the butt and too much work.
The TW made it easy and fun to ride there.

I even thought the motor was ok, you could lug it or scream it, it was always happy.

I have a hard time imagining it with better suspension and real power...
hi, yea the tires make a big difference for sure, what psi is the best on the tw tires on and off road? the rear says 33 psi max but that is way too high for off road.i had them at around 14 psi and they felt good is that about right?
