    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Right, The tranny is "much loved", well ridden and all the rest. Has served me well over winter but as summer is nearing I am reminded that this bike was meant to be for my other half to go touring on.

    Chatter
    I have had a bit of love-hate relationship with Touratech over the years (love the stuff hate the prices !).
