Okay, it's a tough decision as I love my Transalp and she's NEVER let me down but I want an Africa Twin and as I can't afford two bikes then she has to go!

So for sale is my trusty Honda Transalp.

This has been my trusty commuter to work and has NEVER let me down. The only time I've had to call out the RAC was when I messed up and ran out of fuel miles from home! This includes a trip to France and Spain through the Pyrenees where it never missed a beat on any of the cols and mountain climbs. I'm only selling as I fancy a change of bikes.
It's currently done 63720 miles but until sold I will still be using it to commute to work on.

It comes with two ignition keys, Honda topbox with 2 keys and heated grips. It's fitted with Michelin Anakee tyres still with lots of wear in them. It is also currently fitted with Touratech crash bars and Touratech pannier rack and 2x38l Touratech panniers ... I can sell these with the bike if required for £300 otherwise I will remove them to sell seperately.

The bike is also fitted with a Fuel exhaust instead of the original. I've rode this bike in all weathers and despite being thoroughly cleaned regularly there are signs of corrosion. This is as to be expected for a bike of this age and mileage. The only other thing that I know is wrong with the bike is that the fuel gauge does not work. This is not an issue as I just reset the trip every time I refuel. The bike does 180 miles on a full tank so I just refill at 170.

The bike is a great runner and I commute and tour daily at motorway speeds without any issue. I don't do off road as it doesn't have the tyres for it and I don't have the skills!
