Help! Honda Transalp, need some advice.
I've located a 2001 Transalp with almost 60,000 k's on it, full Honda top box and side cases, heated grips, new spocket/chains/tyres which I can get for about 2500 euro
I figure it will cost me at least 400-500 euros to deck out a bike with these extras?
My budget is probably closer to 3000-3500 at a push but this seemed cheap and why wait if the right bike comes up now?
I'm planning a trip from the UK to (hopefully) Vladivostok starting in May 2014 for about 8-10 weeks.
I am 189 cm and 90kg, fairly experienced on and off road but have never been on a Transalp.
3 main questions I guess.
1. Is 60,000 k's too much to start a 12k-14k trip on?
2. Size wise is the bike big enough?
3. Any general feedback on the suitability of the Transalp for the trip and generally stories/advice on people who have had one?
I have Martin from Motorfeirme giving me a hand and will check it out pre purchase and store the bike if I go ahead and buy it.
Thanks in advance.
