I've been into transalps for a while now but I'm newbie owner (recently), my brother in-law has a 2012 700 so that's why I've been interest in them, hopefully it doesn't turn into a money pit
. I had been eyeing this 87 honda 600 until I made my mind and went to try it, and I absolutely loved it! I know what you are thinking "aren't those the xrv 650 africa twin colors?" yes they are, I like to think it as a transalp dressed as an africa twin hehe. On the ride back home I drove here and there for a total of ~100km and it felt really smooth so I have a good feeling about it.
