  1. Chatter
    Snorkel swimming at Rdum il-Qawwi, Malta, on 19/8/2014. In about 20 feet depth of clear mediterranean sea, saw this recently dumped fridge ... Well away from the rocky shore, it must have been dropped there by a boat. EffineffininSavages !
  2. Other Honda
    Hi all, I have checked and could not see a thread dedicated to the SH125/150 scooter from Honda - so I thought I start one. I am riding a SH125i ABS since September this year and use it mainly for my daily commute - 40 mile round trip. The little scooter is ultra practical and so far 100%...

    Ok folks, a tentative toe in the water....... The one on the right! A very nice unabused, unbutchered 600 Transalp in black, '98 on an R reg - one of the later twin front disc models, possibly one of the best Transalps made, certainly the best of the 600's. Previously owned by dod then...

    Hello; My RD07a never came with a toolkit (stolen recovery Cat-D write off business), what is in the toolkit ? Is it worth buying one or should I just make my own up with added tyre levers. What does yours have? I have been making do with the kit from my long stolen (from me) CG125 and the...

    Hi everyone. I hope this is in the right section. I've just returned to biking after a 20 years break. It's great to feel the freedom again. I'd forgotten how wonderful riding is - and how stupid some road users are. Well, I decided on a s/h Transalp - a 2003, 650. Ticks all the boxes. Nuff...

    Hi Guys, am in the process of reworking the way i load my bike when on a trip to make sure as much of the heavy stuff is low and to the centre of the bike.... is there any sort of bike chain/lock storage container/clamp which one can attach to the bike towards the centre... i have crash...

    I've read lots of helpful stuff here in prep for AT ownership. With age/mileage/colour schemes much less of an issue to me than buying a bike that's been properly looked after, my question is do the later bikes have any inherent advantages in the fairing and panel design that makes them better...
  10. What's it worth?
    I have seen a low milage 2004 Vara I am looking long and hard at, on a private deal, but I would need to offload the TA pretty soon afterwards, as I cannot really justify having both ... (to SWMBO!!) I am doing the sums now to see if this is a goer, but I wondered what the collective here...

    Have just bought a 1150GS so my transalp has to go. Its a V6 model, the last version of the 650's and is a nice clean bike. It has Honda heated grips, centre stand and top box, Givi pannier rack and Givi E21 panniers and Touratech crash bars. The R/H underseat panel has a crack but other than...
  12. Transalp
    Went for my test ride today, first time riding a TA and boy was I impressed :D. They are so easy to ride, and very comfy, everything just felt right. It's a 2003 V3 in black and I like it a lot! I had a loan FZ6, the one with the underseat exhausts for 1 1/2 months over December and January...

  14. Africa Twin
    Just in the garage (Isn't wifi great) and thinking about how to keep the frame rails under the seat protected, it's obviously an area that gets stone chipped as evidenced by the amount of rust that was there. I have a few ideas: - Wrap aluminium duct tape round them - Wrap black plastic...
  15. For Sale / Wanted
    Hiya. This is one of those oh-so-slightly annoying adverts as the seller isn't even one hundred percent sure he wants to sell it, but then again I don't know if anyone actually wants to buy it, either - so lets find out... I've also never sold a bike privately before so please forgive me if I...

    Anyone know how to get the lock barrel out of the frame? :confused: Guess it needs to be before it can be powder coated

    I was very disappointed to discover how much smaller the Honda panniers are on the new TA 700. They list them at 29 litres but anyone can tell the left is bigger than the right. the TA 650 are 38 and 30 litres but the main thing is you can fit a full face in the left pannier but not with the TA...
