not a very good pic but made a new part of the rear subframe so to support the luggage rack and the side bars bolt to the ends.

Brilliant!

I love TW 200, except for that troubling issue of 16 horsepower.

Good fix. Wish I had one, but probably not enough to buy a thumper and start building. Why can't I just get sompin like this "right out of the box", so I can spend my time playing?

its kind of hard to tell since im not a pro level racer but for the kind of riding i do i like it better than the 21. i like the wide 18 inch in soft dirt and sand, it seems to float more on top and a little more stable and on road its like having my supermoto setup back. if i rode more rock crawler stuff i would keep the 21 but getting older and harder to heal so im more into easier rides. 44 years of riding dirtbikes is catching up to all my bones and joints!

I have some catching up to do but being a Boilermaker welder and year of thinking i am invincible at Ju-jitsu have given me all the back problems i need.......until i start thinking i am Invincible again

i'll have to ride a proper supermoto one day.......i use to get looks doing it on a DR650 with MT21's front and rear

Speaking of supermotos, kubiak needs to try the TW street tire and a similar front.

i dont think i need more traction, with the knobbies i have on now the limit is till i scrape parts on the turns! they sure grab the pavement nice. i been running around 20 psi in the rear tire, is that about right for a 370 lbs bike? or should i be running more? i like the huge contact patch at that psi.

The knobbies do grab about the same. You just get a little more even leaning ability with the street ones.

Given you're on a slightly heavier bike, I wouldn't get much past 22-24psi and that's if you're not touching dirt. 20 is typically a good place to be I think, especially given your weight.
