    Hello all! I'm the proud yet frustrated owner of a Transalp xl650v6 which I brought new in August 2007. Ever since then I've had a love hate relationship with the bike especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs. Firstly let me admit that I am a sinner! Hailing originally from New...

    What's it worth?
    I was messing about with this about five years ago and then children started arriving and it's been in my way ever since. It's got to go and was hoping I could get some advice on its worth. I rebuilt everything and anything worn or could wear out I replaced. I certainly can't remember...
