  1. Transalp
    I think I know the answer to this but the place I ordered my filter from are being quite insistent that the filter for the 2007 xl650 is different from the one used for the 2001-2006 650. I'm pretty sure all the 650 filters will be the same but he reckons I need a 204 not a 303. The 204 happens...
  2. Ride Reports and Pictures
    The roads this morning were a bit slippery, but we finally dragged ourselves out of the warmth of the Super Sausage Cafe (Nr Towescester) this morning and went and did some trails in Northamptonshire, getting there proved cold for some eh Mark :D : We did some lanes and then took the...

    Hi All Me and a mate are looking to do this over a week in May. Does anyone hire theses beasts out for such trips? Thanks

    :rolleyes: Oh come on - really :rolleyes: What were you thinking :D But seeing as you're here, I know absolutely nothing, and I mean zero about websites so thought it was time I learned something. Thanks to youtube instructional videos I had a go at building this. Not there yet and...

  6. Transalp
    Recently passed DAS test & in the market for a bigger bike. Looking at Africa Twins and Transalps. Saw this for sale & just wondered if anybody thinks this is a reasonable price.

    ... Miss Raven_UK and her YBR125 :D :cool: :D :cool: :D Got her through her CBT near the end of last month, and her new bike finally got delivered by George White Superbikes yesterday :thumbright:. Went out for a short ride today, and once she gets over her nerves I think she'll be okay...

    Do you think it would be possible to install ABS components from the transalp into the AT. There has to be someone out there who tried to fit ABS, hasn't there.
  10. Africa Twin
    I made this video a while ago when i rode to italy and amsterdam. You can see my africa twin passing and just toying with the transalps. I pretty much maxed out the bike, you can see an indicated 111mph on the gps. And i let go the throttle let the transalps pass, and then crank it back up and...
  11. Transalp
    ..saw millions of them. :confused: ... well, seven at least :hello1: Obviously the ubiquitous scooters were everywhere, but I was pleasantly surprised at the number of trailies I saw, especially the alp. Saw 2 650's and 5 well used 600's. And first bike I saw back in the country was an alp...
  12. Transalp
    Just wondered how many Transalps would be at the National Meet next month :confused: Just checked with the "Bitter Book of Records*" UK office who believe the largest gathering of Honda Transalps in the UK is a mere six. Will this event be a new UK record of these rare beasts ? :rolleyes: I'm...
  13. Transalp
    I had to ride my wifes 650 Transalp the other day. Two up. I thought it would be a bit naff but whoa was I wrong. Recently fitted Wilbers progressive fork springs with 10W oil. Wow what a difference. Goes exactly where you point it, really smooth over bumps, no buffeting (larger Honda screen)...
  14. Transalp
    out on my 1998 T/A this afternoon and on the way from Weymouth to Bridport on the coast road i am hanging off one side to keep a straight line. fun!! do they all do this?i have a topbox so i bet that does not help?
  15. Transalp
    Ok, I' generally not into posting about seeing another Alp or @ on the road - rare though it might be! On the way home from HU - Ripley, I passed 3 (yes three) 650's within 1/2 an hour! The first sighting was at around 5.30pm near the Barnsley/Doncaster turnoff heading south on the A1, two...
  16. Transalp
    Check them out here (or see pics) This is a babel fish translation of the sales patter. Here you find our complete assortment of unusual wood models. From the small Vesparoller to the attained full growth battle tank. And naturally our popular and beyond the borders admitted...
  17. Transalp
    Looked at four Transalps now 04's and 05's between 6 and 10 thousand miles. All of them were complete rust buckets. Rusty yokes, wheels exhausts and engine casings. Is this a common problem or have I just been unlucky?
  18. Transalp
    How many Transalpists are going down to Wales this weekend for the national meet? I have got a varadero and an old Africa Twin never had a Transalp but i think that they are a really great bike
  19. Other Bikes
    Yep, bloody Transalps. It's all its fault. (Not mine for a change!) For years I'd been quite happy with my import KDX for really gnarly muddy wet stuff. Then I go and play with "torque" off road. Now, don't get me wrong, power is good, we all like power I know, me as much as the next rider, but...
  20. Transalp
    Any one else done a rally on a TA? (Or others?) They are FAB, definately the way to go. I ride like Captin Slow, and I keep on getting stuck, but I must recommend doing atleast 1 to every one. These photos are from the Rydale Rally, in North Yorkshire. The starting paddock, clean and tidy...
