Great ride and very well written. I bought a TW 200 this year mostly for riding along the abandoned CN line north of Thunder Bay. Once it is broken in I am inspired to go farther afield after your experiences.
One of the most fun bikes I had was a Honda MB5 with 50cc of screaming two stroke. It would do 80 kph. on flat ground with no wind. You could be riding the wheels off it and nobody would know.
Thanks for the entertainment. Bob.
