Exclamation For Sale: Honda Transalp 600 XLV in Mexico

In one months my trip from Chile to Mexico is over, so my loyal Honda Transalp 600 XLV is for sale from August when I will arrive in Mexico. The bike is in good condition, and until now had no technical problems from starting in Chile 6 months ago.

The specs:

Honda Transalp 600 XLV
Tires Bridgestone TW47: good condition
Sprockets 15T and Chain DtD V8: good condition
Two Givi suitcases 36 and 45 liters
63.000 km (now in Nicaragua with 60.500 km on the clock)
price: 3500 dollars

The motorbike - as u can see on the pictures on my website benfeiertag.blogspot.com - has an extra welded rearframe for extra stability and it has a surfrack for my surfboard. This surfrack is not welded, but just fixed with screws. If you do not surf it is easy to remove this rack.

I had a lot of fun with this bike, its not too heavy and its a Honda. So its reliable. I had no problems until now and that gave me a great feeling of relief and security. For me it was and still is the perfect travel bike.

You can contact me through the Hubb of benfeiertag@yahoo.com, glad to hear from you.

Kind regards,

Ben Feiertag

After two buyers wanted the bike but changed their plans last minute, I still have the bike for sale. I am now in Mexico until the 26th of August. Will be around Puerto Escondido and Acapulco. Let me know if people are interested!

Cheers, Ben
