  3. Transalp XL700 Exhaust Silencer

    Hi all! I figure you guys are best fit to deal with this query. Have had my 2010 XL700 Transalp for 3 years (or will have come August) and it is a beauty of a bike, even if I have had to sort out some issues. However, the standard Honda exhaust silencer gave up yesterday and now instead of...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    At Last! In the first three days of owning my new TransAlp I only managed to ride 60km. According to the weather man we’d have a few hours without rain today, so today was to be the day. The TA (who is yet to be named) will have it’s first taste of gravel. The first gravel on my new bike just...
