Joyner Trooper T2

Recommended Posts

I have been riding duel sport motorcycles (mostly 2 up) for the last 50 years. Due to old injuries bothering me on the current motorcycle (bmwr1150gs) I'm thinking of a switch to a dune buggy. I've looked at the Trooper and talked to the dealer and he says no problem using it on the roads. I live in the mtns in virginia.

How do they handle on back paved roads. My intention would be to use it 60% mtn back roads paved, 35% gravel/dirt forest service roads and 5% trails.

I put 4K to 5K miles per year on the motorcycle and would want to use the Trooper the same. Will this work? If so will it hold up to the miles?

Thanks to all for info or opinions.

Robert.

The trooper will work out very well.If you do all maintenance it should give you years of service.The steering is a little heavy. I would recommend upgrading to the electronic steering rack. Other than that it should be perfect. Most breakdowns are from lack of maintenance anyways. - silverbullet

Get rid of the stock tires, they won't last long any way and put on some General Grabber AT2 27x8.50 R14 95Q 6PR OWL on 6" wide wheels. And like I always say, snorkel it. They say it goes 65 mph but that's screaming the engine, Comfortable is 45 to 50 and on mine, I get 10 mph per 1000 RPM, and while the exhaust sounds really cool at the dealers, after an hour or so, it's loud, you'll want a muffler.

We are street legal in AZ and I have even had my on the freeway. Only between two exits as I live in the sticks. Cruised 55mph with no problems. Drives really well.

We have a T4 and love it. I would read all the posts and that will give you an idea of what problems different people have had in the past. Our resident Joyner specialist are Kinarfi and Lenny who are both very knowledgeable about the T2's and I don't think they would mind answering your questions. I do agree with Kinarfi about the tires, we had problems with the stock tires and replaced them with the General Grabbers and love them, they even came with road hazard. Enjoy your T2 when you get it.
