    The CT just seems bigger, but I haven't seen one in the flesh or really compared it to the Cub. So I'm probably wrong.

    On something that small and light, the difference is amazing, I bet!

    As the bike sits now it feels as fast as the TUX except it starts to run out of breath at 55mph vs 65mph. If I can get it to get up to 75mph comfortably and still have gobs of torque down low in the trails and back roads I'll consider it a win. With what I've seen on the forums and YT that is going to be very attainable. The wheel base and size is absolutely fun. I went up some dirt roads Sunday when we got some mid 30'F weather and it's right at home one the back roads. Makes me very reminiscent of my first bike an old Honda C70 Passport "Cub". It really just makes you smile when you ride it.

    I just can't wait to be able to ride everyday NOT in my snowmobile gear.

    The Big Bore Kit should land for this weekend, same with a performance exhuast and pod filter. Hoping the Monkey will be hopped up by Sunday.

    Best,

    The first motorcycle I remember in my life was my brother's 1970 Z50, and this bike really reminds me of that. Intensely cool memories. I'm very likely to be getting a KLR or DR this year, to go ghost town hunting and jeep trail riding with my brother, but if he and I lived closer than 100 miles to each other, I'd be pushing for a TW200. I love the cool little bikes.
