TW200, it will take you to about any fishing hole you want to find including those that might be 3000 miles away . But it is not a "Beast".

bike thoughts......

If you're within 30 miles or so of your fishing area, I'd be lookin' at a KLX250 (I personally think the seat on mine was a little too narrow for any long distance travel). Within 60 miles, a DRZ400 would be pretty slick (also a narrow seated bike, but not as bad). Anything longer than that, probably a 650 dual sport.........at least, that's what I'd be shootin' for.

Forget the ice chest, get a couple old fiberglass saddlebags drill some 1/4 " holes in the bottom and fill with ice...add fish. Dry ice will freeze them into stone. If you ride several hours, get ice at the last possible place.
If you fish several hours Ice may melt by then.
You may not need ice for smallmouth bass, they live in a water bucket for some time.

But if you catch and release the fish, you can get fish later at a grocery store..they will be fresh.

Fishing ?

It doesn't really matter what bike because once you start riding you won't have to go fishing. People that fish don't have bikes.

Ditto. Uly's suck at mud too. But they can haul what you need, cover the tarmak inbetween and any dirt surface called a "road."

My Wee-Strom does a lot of fishing in Colorado...

It at least gets me close enough to walk into where I want to fish. 4-pc TFO, 4-pc St Croix (ABS tubes from Home Depot parts), vest, and waders are in the grey duff. They have survived many high country lay-downs and one loss of bag on the interstate due to someone's overconfidence in their strapping ability . Lesson learned...





...in WY enroute to MT

My favorite setup was my '83 XL600R, kick start only so I didn't worry about a dead battery in the middle of nowhere. I put my telescopic rod, and compact tackle box in a backpack with a sack lunch and a beer. I carried a gallon ziplock for fish, and headed for home at day's end. Overnight required a duffel bag strapped to the rear containing the tent, sleeping bag, and pan to cook the fish before they go bad.

Nice big panniers would work well for ice chests, though, if you wanted to bring them home.

Whatever you have works. With will.


Granted, it's not the ideal one ever constructed...

I bought my TW 200 mainly to get to very remote water crossings, fishing holes. With the Cycle racks you can camp off the thing. It will go almost anywhere a Rokon can go.
