Hello to everybody.
I am a happy owner of a new XL700VA. It's really a great bike and i like it very much. I can't wait for a good weather to come.
Some pics of my bike to follow...
Welcome to the forum.
You will not be disappointed with the Transalp, it is a great bike.
I think that is one of the signs of poor design on the bike, better protection would enhance the bike no end.I've managed 300km so far (not much because of the bad weather) and the bike really impressed me. It's very comfortable, easy to ride and has enough power.
The only thing that I don't like is poor wind protection for my height. I considered a taller windscreen but I don't like the look. TA is very beautiful as it is.
