We don't get a rear disc either...
My wife recently got an XT225. We lowered it to make her more comfortable with it (5'0" beginner), and I have been really impressed. It cruises at 65mph pretty comfortably- at least no worse than my KLR. If you plan on doing any road riding, I'd consider the XT over the TW.
