Yamaha TW125

1999 Yamaha Trailway TW125

Owned from March 2002 – June 2002

Reg: T228 BGK

The TW was bought as a replacement for my chronically unreliable DT50. In a rather nice shade of orange and with the most eye-catching design of any ‘basic’ 125 at the time it certainly looked the part!

The riding experience was adequate – I wasn’t expecting to leave a trail of scorched rubber behind me with a mere 12hp to play with. Top speed was about 60mph, although the low gearing meant the bike was still reasonable (If cramped!) with a pillion. The TW was sold to make way for a Honda Varadero 125.
