    .... that needs scratching. I had a dominator in the family from '96 until early last year and I really miss it. I think I need to replace it with a new one. Problem is I'm ultra fussy and want an ultra low milage mint model if possible. Any kicking around anywhere?
  10. Today's Transalp

    Transalp
    I've had my 650 Transalp for about 7 years, and 40,000 odd miles. What would you suggest as a suitable, up-to-date, successor? A new Africa Twin would be exceedingly nice, but, being realistic, I should be looking for something lighter and less tall than the TA (and no more than £4-5000). Would...

    I bought a 13 year old 650 Transalp last August 2015 and after initial niggles that you guys helped sort out it has performed perfectly. I took it to Spain in May and it did'nt miss a beat.

  14. Alpine Pass Bucket List

    Great Roads/Routes
    I may be going to have a couple of days in the Alps in September, on my way back from Croatia. I'm definitely considering taking in the Stelvio, as I've never done it.
