sell my tw200 for a 74 honda cb350? or somthing else?

Hi everyone new to the forum,

skeeming if i should sell my tw 200 to get a cb350

I love my tw 200 !! it is my first motor bike. But when I get it on the highway i feel like I am going to get mowed down by large trucks!! the local roads max speed is 90 is km/h so it is ok, but a bit more jam would be nice, and if i take longer trips being able to go 110 with out it screaming would be better.

I use the tw for trail building, exploring the logging roads , and packing a chain saw. I even mounted a rack to pack my mtb bike.


The cb350 Looks cool, will be faster ! I would put dual sport tires and scrambler bars maybe a custom rear rack. on it but packing a chain saw will not work as well , and if i dump it in the bush the chrome will get all dinged up! but dam that thing is cool.


so ya what should i do or what other bikes should I hunt for?

Or you could change your sprockets a bit. I went up one tooth in front and down three or so in the back. I ride my TW with three other guys with TWs that have stock gearing. I can plod along with them but have about 8MPH higher top end.
This will be your cheapest way to go.

I have put a 47 tooth sprocket on the back so it is better, but would like a little more power but not much weight.

maybe a dr350?

A CB350 is indeed cool, and there are not that many of them left. Please don't trash a nice one. There are more modern bikes out there that will get the job done and you won't lose much if you mess it up.

I'd get the cb,just because you can but not ride it like your tw. Regear your tw or get a larger ds like the dr650

TU250x in scrambler dress would be cool and seem to fit the bill.
