    Any used bike sites people can direct me to in Europe? Still not over there yet but starting to keep my eyes open for a descent used bike. I have been watching but are there any others? Hope to get that way in the next couple months but this is a slow process for sure. Thanks
  2. Transalp
    The exhaust headers on the transalp, are a sight for sore eyes. Surface rust galore! I've been considering heat wrapping the headers, which I've done previously on car exhaust manifolds. If I was to heat wrap the bike exhaust, with it being open to the elements, if it gets soaked from rain...

    Just browsed the MCN bikes for sale pages, as you do, and kicked the search for @'s up. 4 total, 3 of which are private. 2 of those private sales are 50+k miles old, and one of them is a bitsa to my eyes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . but they all want £3k plus for their bikes...

    Was hammering along this deserted stretch of road early this morning on the way to Skye in my trusty Vectra ;) Turned off before Lochcarron on the top road to Kyle.

    I have recently had two women I know, both married get really excited that I have an AT. 'Oh!! an Africa twin' and a weird lustful look in their eyes.
