I looked at a TW and sat on it. Not sized to hold 2 adults comfortably in my opinion. Would be a fun ride for just me.

I have been adventure riding since 2004. I spent a lot of time and money looking for the perfect bike. The best big bike I had was a BMW R100PD. This bike was perfect for 2 up off road riding. I also rode a V-Strom 650 for a spell. The V-Strom was a great all around bike, but it wasn't sporty enough off the paved roads to make me happy. When my wife decided she wanted to have her own bike, we bought her a Yamaha TW200. The TW is a great beginners bike but it is underpowered. I have seen Kawasski 250 motard bikes with wide tires and liked what I saw - much more power. I rode a DR650 until it blew up. Suzuki has had a problem with a small number of bikes breaking 3rd gear. Third gear is right by the piston so when it fragments, everything is ruined. My current bike is a Kawasaki KLX400. It was made for Kawasaki by Suzuki and is a DRZ400 clone. It is a great bike. I have ridden it from sea level to 13,000 feet. Yes, power is down at high altitudes, but there is enough power to keep riding. I would love one of the new EFI bikes, but I can't bring myself to spend $10,000 on a dirt bike.

Currently ride a Yamaha WR250R (modified). Got rid of a 2014 KLR 650. It was a "do anything" bike but heavy for a 70 year old.

Love riding in Colorado around Buena Vista or Ouray/Lake City.

I raced MX, Enduro, Hare Scrambles, Desert, and flat track in my younger days but time has taken it's toll. I'm a little slower these days but I don't crash near as much!!!!
