This is the Yamaha TW200 that I rode at motorcycle school this weekend
Vall and Mo if you're still out there I have something I want to tell you.
The last time we talked you told me you are interested in the Yamaha TW200, well that just happened to be the motorcycle that I rode all weekend for my motorcycle test. Before my only experience with the TW200 was sitting on it in the dealers showroom but now that I've ridden it I have a more favorable opinion of the motorcycle.
Now I still don't think that it's a good motorcycle for the highway, but that wasn't something you needed anyway. But I do feel like for the uses that you described the TW200 might be just perfect. I found it to be an easy motorcycle to ride. the seat height and the handlebars were comfortable but just a tad low for my 34 inch inseam, so if you're less than 6 foot tall it might be just perfect. It was an easy motorcycle to get used to and ran great for the 10 or so hours I was on it. It was very maneuverable and those fat tires had plenty of traction, in fact it had so much traction that I had the shortest stopping distances in the whole class.
So I would say the TW200 would make a great motorcycle riding around out in the boondocks and making a short run to the Walmart. And I'm assuming that the motorcycle had to be pretty reliable or the school wouldn't have had it around.
