Thumbs up Transalp 650

Can anyone recommend a center-stand and crash-bars for a 650 transalp, and if so, where they can be purchased.
Cheers

Yeah. Go to www.norrus.net. He has them and his prices and service are apparently quite good. A couple of guys on ADV rider have used him. I'm thinking of buying crash bars for my new Trans from him.

Hi there Howiezowie!

Why don't you check the following URL:

http://www.mml-motorradzubehoer.de/MML-Onlineshop-2006-022/

I got my rack and Hepco&Becker Junior cases there this year - great service, very reliable and I think the price is also very competitive! Sorry that it's all in German - but the link is leading you directly to the TA stuff, everything should be self-explanatory. Again - I am NOT connected to that place, just passing on my positive Internet shopping experience!!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
