They are great little bikes, but to the guy asking about 60+
if you are a big guy, not a chance in hell.


You can rent them if you ever go to Aruba for fairly cheap. So much fun. Ride them all over the goat paths on the back of the island.
In the deep sand, just be prepared to help push some, but they will go anywhere.

Speed

I routinely cruise Arizona freeways and run 65 MPH for 150 mile stretches at a time with out any problems. I weigh 180 at 6'1". My gearing is 14/44. Top speed is 78 on the flats with no wind. Speed verified by GPS. It does not use oil.
.
I did 4,000 miles on it in February on a tour of Mexico. It will do whatever is asked of it. Great bike.
.
I have the luxury (or curse) of having a lot of motorcycles. The TW gets ridden the most. John
