  1. Transalp
    Hi, I haven't been around for a while, having sold the transalp to my brother. He uses it mostly for touring, and so finds the setup of connector pipe and Leo Vince exhaust a bit loud (but it's great fun for hooning around). I've reinstalled the original HEAVY! silencer box for him and am now...
