How about some camping in Pennsylvania?

How am I supposed to think out of the box; if they don't let me out of the box?

wider good, don't de-evolve wa_medic

You can only go wider. Remember girth is important-Sorry couldn't resist.

Can: Kolpin 1.25 gallon (49 state model-shhhhhhhh) No issues seals awesome on its side or upside down. No crazy CARB spigot.

Boots: Sidi Discovery - Exterior metal front caps, very sturdy, but the sole has enough give that you can walk/hike in them (although they wouldn't be my choice for 2+ mile hike). Think they retail around 350, but I found these new on ebay for less than half that when someone bought the wrong size. Love them!!!!!
Website I looked them up at (couldn't remember the name of the boot) said this:

Dirt Wheels: “…a winner for the ATV rider looking for a comfortable, easy to own, and rugged do-it-all riding boot.”

BMW Owners News: “I found the boots to be anatomically designed for a comfortable fit. No pressure points, no rubbing, no binding.” “…these boots are my new favorites.”

4-Wheel ATV Action: “Comfort is absolutely first rate. The Sidi Discovery is the best ATV boot we’ve ever tested.” ATV Sport: “…we absolutely love how easy the quick release buckles work.”

Features
  • Membrane equipped to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the rider’s feet.
  • Soft rubber sole for maximum grip.
  • Replaceable strap system.
  • Top grain leather and Lorica construction.
  • Composite inner sole. Removable arch support.
  • Exclusive cam-lock buckle system.
  • Cambrelle lining Slim, cool non-bootie design.
  • Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection.
  • Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel.

I got the same boots and love them. I got them off eBay for less that $50. The soles are pretty well beat but the leather is good. Probably from a squid dragging their feet to much.

Any suggestions on a place to send them to get resoled? I'm pretty rural so no cobblers near by.

The RotoPax fuel containers don't leak; they never had the "commie spigot."

$200 shipped fair for front and rear rack?

Not perfect, but do what they're supposed to do and act as crash bars in the rear too.

It's a 2001 Yamaha TW200 with about 11k miles. About as pretty as a mule, but a much better ride than one. Fresh battery installed this past weekend.

Willing to sell for the same deal I got on it this past fall before I spent some money on the battery and rear brake pads that were replaced, $900.

This bike is a blast, you realistically can not get it stuck, and if by some chance you do, you just pick it up by the rack and reset it somewhere else. Great around the camp/farm bike, or take it out on the road, but I'd avoid the superslab. Registered here in VA.

Edit: I also just ordered a set of used blue/orange plastics from a 1995 TW200 so those will come with it as well.

*Disclaimer:Wife not included.

Ok here goes.

You offered to sell your tw in march, i offered to buy it but i guess your wife cancelled your sale.

You asked for here a cluster, i offered one for free, not sure what happened there but i guess you didn't want it. Ok, maybe i said i'd take a ham sandwich for it....

You offered to sell your tw in may and I said i'd buy it in an email and pm. No questions asked. No response until i quoted you in this thread and you said somebody was ahead of me somehow but would let me know on "on monday". Is that tomorrow or three weeks ago?

Now logic tells me that maybe your bike isn't available now but the racks are. If somebody actually wants these racks, how would they go about buying them from you? Or are you just trying to determine worth for insurance purposes?
