    I'll PM you a phone number if you wanna talk on it.
    street legal as in wheelers are registered? insured?

    what additional permissions does the trail pass give?

    It's per bike I'm sure...what about kids and 90's?

    Thanks.

    I was talking about street legal dual sport motorcycles.

    A few mouse clicks and you can have all your questions answered.

I would recommend you gear your bike for trail riding and make sure you can touch the ground with both feet. We have a camp in Boylston and ride out of Winona Forest all summer. You can get any where u want from any drop location with the dual sport bikes. We run Yamaha tw's and 1 Kawasaki klx.Attachment 2996

    Is the Yamaha a TW 200? I was looking at one for my 120 lb wife, but wasn't sure how it would handle. How do you like it?

    They are ok. Low saddle height makes them easy to ride. No speed demon nor a handling dream but they are great for crawling.

    Rode the hill tonight 3/30, just over 80 miles and saw a couple spots that wheelers had attempted to go and only made it very short distances because of the snow pack. There is still good coverage for the most part with some small bare spots that you can still easily get around on sled. Most of the trails I rode would not have been much fun at all and maybe not even possible yet on a wheeler.

    we love the TW. 31" seat height,270 pounds and the fat tires kick ass. They are a very forgiving bike on the trail..It may be just a 200 but I run it everyday on regular 55 mph roads. Bigger bikes have a hard time keeping the pace of the tw in the woods trails.. The tw can bush whack,mud bog and goes over downed trees with ease.. I lowered my wife's with a vstar shock and slid the forks up a 1.5" through the triple tree.. Over all a rock solid fun bike at a good price new or used that has been in production sinse 1987!
    Shoot me a pm if u want more real world info.. I can go on all day about the TDub...

    U will dig the tw no doubt. We have a 2008, two 2003's and a 1987 in our group.. I've got 20,000 miles on my Tw now.. Ditch the front stock tire for a Shinko 241 or 244. That really helps on the trails.

    So who wears a Teck vest or some sort of body armor while they're out riding their TW?
