Bike Advice? Looking for motorcycle or dirt bike to carry on Fuso


I have the Cycleracks front and rear racks for my TW200. I highly recommend looking into at least the rear if you haven't already crossed paths with that company. Easy install and can accommodate quite a bit of firewood, groceries or whatever else you find yourself lugging to or from camp.

Agreed as to the cycleracks...other thing is if the bike still has the deathwing front tire, ditch it for something better ASAP


Watching you from a ridge
Crappy compound and pattern, well known for washing out on you when you least expect it. Therefore "Deathwing" :D


Gotta Be Nuts
Just got a 2009 Kawasaki 250cc Super Sherpa for the back of our MB 1120 build. Was also looking for a TW200 but this one came up locally at a good price. Disc brakes front and rear, stainless exhaust and looks to be good build quality. I guess a bit rare in the US which is a bit limiting for aftermarket parts.

I have a Super Sherpa as well for the back of my RV. I'm on my second one, first was stolen.
I like it so much better than all the others mentioned here so far.
It's air cooled, has a carb, and can be worked on by just about anyone around the world.
It's fairly light at 280 pounds, has normal size tires that can be easily found.
I put a top box on mine and can go into town, get groceries, do laundry, etc.
Has rear passenger foot pegs and grab handles for 2 up riding.
I also have an extra front sprocket, one size up, for doing more highway riding.
The bike is geared pretty low stock, the 6 speed gearbox is nice.
It's damn near bulletproof, just what you need for exploring away from base.
