I heard through the grapevine that the bike was recently sold....


Anybody lurking on TT the new, proud, owner of the coolest bike I've seen in a long time?

BTW, for those following along...It's a Honda Transalp with XR 600R suspension, Africa Twin swingarm, tank, and plastics.

I did own a Transalp and it does have a very sweet motor. What it really needs is dual disc front brakes, good disc rear brakes, and tubeless tires. I just never liked the hassle of trying to fix flats on a heavy bike with no center stand. But the Africa Twin styling is very nice on that Transalp.
