I've been umming and arhing for a while, plus the old craziness is kickng back in
I've spent so much money on my R65, I now have two great bikes, but both do a similarish job.
So, thinking about getting a single air cooled trailie. The craziness mentioned is because it drives me crazy when doing tappets on the Transalp.
Yes, yes, I know it is not every day and I did them last week and six hours later, none needed doing.
So, what about price? What do you think? I've got some ideas, but here's a bit of info to give you an idea:
Transalp 2006 V6
I would sell 'Sold as seen' to cover myself legally, but I can tell you that it runs perfectly and faultlessly and took the two of us round Portugal last year and Germany before that.
New battery last year.
New fork oil last week, upping it to 7.5 weight and a tiny spacer. It doesn't seem to noticeably improve handling, but what it does stop is that annoying dip when you tap the brakes at low speed.
New tapered head bearings about 1000 miles ago, so you won't be touching those for a while
In last week's service, new plugs and air filter fitted.
It has Touratech, I think, crash bars.
The screen is all drilled and a mess, but it works or you can replace it.
ADDED - the clock has stopped working.
The paint is peeling from the front mudguard and a bit of rust along where the rear brake hose goes, but, as I am a massive advocate for ACF50, you shouldn't find much more.
A Honda top box is included. It has four holes in the top where I had a rack fitted, which I am keeping.
It has Give racks, but no panniers.
I have Nonfango panniers fitted and could include subject to price.
New rear pads not a million miles ago and spare front ones will be included.
There is a crack in the side panel, it was there before I got it 20,000 miles ago.
The rear left indicator stalk split 20,000 miles ago. If I used it off road, I'd fit Dommie ones.
Mainstand of course.
Here's an idea of condition:
Here's the racks modified to take my panniers; NOTE this mod is totally reversible:
