To be honest the AT I think is overrated. Yes it's a nice bike but for all that extra weight with little power increase an Old 600 TA will do just as well.
If you lives closer you would be welcome to look at mine.
I suspect you might be right. I had a good look at an AT in Cyprus and it looked heavy and ungainly next to the Transalp.
I see the Transalp has quite a following on the adventure motorcycling websites, and I've always been impressed with Honda build quality.
Well it's getting cold and wet again so I am thinking of getting a new pair of gloves...
Hope you are all fairing well - don't let the bad weather put you off, eh? ...
Last year I bought a pair of Weise gloves and I was impressed enough with them to write to the place where I bought them:
The claw gloves are meant to be the best type since they keep your fingers warm from being close together. I use the hein Garick Pathans:
Only critisism i have is no gloves seem to keeps your thumb warm. Also to make them even warmer put silk gloves on under them.
Well I'm back on a proper motorbike after a 2 1/2 year break after I went over a taxi.
I got myself a cheap (£400) Yamaha Diversion 600, a few minor repairs/tweaks and it's MOT'd
I am waiting on a top box arriving and will be using the bike for a bit of touring/camping with the missus (if I can convince her to do it).
We want to do
a bit of the UK and maybe Ireland first then venture into Europe when we have a bit more confidence in our set up.
Any words of advice would be greatly received
Hi Tytek, did you go over the taxi on the slabby? . . . .
