What are your thoughts on the TW ... is it as much fun as it looks?

Mud, trail, sand, snow?
Well, as much as I'd like to offer valid and worthy advice, it is the only dirt oriented bike that I've ridden. Regardless, I would think it plenty capable, will go 55 with it's gearing on the street, 60 if you push it a bit harder. Accelerates fine though a tach would be nice. I'm sure it's way more competent that I am with any of the above conditions, but considering a nice used one can probably be had from 2-3000, and you could ride it from your house to any chosen trail or play spot, how could you go wrong?

Brakes leave something to be desired on the street, but I suspect that's the case with any dual sport/dirt bike. You might have more tire/wheel alternatives with something like a DR200, which my family also has, but I haven't ridden.
