    Yamaha TW200

    Anyone have this bike? I don't ride but I'm becoming obsessed with the idea of getting one.
    Can't drag a deer out with it, but I can legally ride on the road and go off road where ever I want with one.

    What makes you think you can't drag a deer with it? Those things have lots of jam (torque).

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    Probably could if I really cared to, but still need a truck or atv at one point to get it all the way home is what I really meant.

    A travois should help with the dragging. If it's the bike I'm thinking of, it should be pretty good for that.

    Can definitely drag a deer with it. I have a Honda CRF110 (the half size bike) and I easily pull my two kids on a toboggan with it.
    I have no signature block.

    You could bone it out in the field and load it onto your bike, or you could go this route and be a hit with the ladies and PETA freaks as you ride through town...

    I've owned 3 of them. Great rides. Big tires. Looking left when I should have been looking right and dumped the last one twice. Broke 2 ribs the first time and a mango sized hematoma the 2nd time. Now I ride on 4 wheels(Honda foremen rubicon 500).
    I put 3000 kms on mine in 2 years of deer hunting/sight seeing. Use premium gas and you will never have a problem with it. Change the oil every fall.
    A rack on the back for the tote. First two were 200 and the last was a 250. Carried two people easily. Not great in rocky roads or stream sides.
    A liter of gas went a long way. You won't regret it.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Survival Russia has a bunch of videos on his. He even seems to prefer it to his tank sometimes.
