I have a skid plate and saddlebags to mount after the first service which is due now. After the GS, it seems to have a mile of clearance.

Somehow I managed not to total the bike, or myself, and ride it home (after bending the handlebars back). I had to sheepishly tell my dad about it. He was just glad I was OK.

Anyway, the TW is a great little bike, and pretty much the perfect bike to learn on. Doesn't sound like your daughter is too hot to go riding just yet.
My best friend endo'd my TW200 too. I watched him get crossed up in the whoops going to fast (TW200 ~ not the bike to be cruising through whoops on, at speed). Watched him go right over the handlebars, then watched my new TW200 (less than 2k miles on it, and 6 months old) do three cartwheels before coming to rest. It was a rough day. Broken collar bone, trashed bars, fairing tank... pretty much the everything in front of the footpegs was toast, save the rim and forks.

That sounds like my very first wreck, at about 30 MPH on a Honda Fat Cat. I was riding a power line in FL and didn't realized they'd cut a fire break across it until it was too late. My dad who was paralleling me said the bike flipped three times and I got launched like a man out of a cannon.

This will be the last addition to the garage in a while. Really enjoy the creature comforts on this Caponord! She's a bit heavy, but it's just more to love!

I thought I saw your tiger on C list a while back. For a little guy you sure like the big girls. Enjoy Ming.

I bet you can comfortably pack way more than a six pack on that one

Tires

Put a set of these, Heidenau K60's on my f650gs. Tried them out today and so far they are bomb, A little washing on front if you push it hard in corners on dirt. On pavement they stick!! Overall I will buy them again.
