Description

Honda XL600v Transalp '96. 93200m/150000km. Black. Full optional. ULEZ free.

A bit of history about this golden piece before the technical data sheet(at the end), it was 2014 when I bought a set of panniers and I learned to change the oil&filter to it on my own, so with a tent, sleeping bag and a camera I started the journey, #To Australia by Land.
Traveling down the Mediterranean sea, and crossing Turkey, deviating in Russia, detouring to Iran, stopping to ship it to India and working there for few months, this bike had carried me all the way, at fast pace, on the mud, on the sand rain and snow. India wasn't the last place for us, we had few thousands mile before we could cheer for victory. So we persistently continued our trip to Myanmar and then Thailand and Malaysia, wher eventually we packed up everything on a crate and shipped on a boat to Sydney. And from far away I could shout "Land'' "Land", the mission was achieved, but had to wait 30 day to see the bike agai, custom and border control!!

One year had passed like an eye blink, and so the next stage where been planned, it involved an other embankment to Canada, and other 30 day in stand-by. So from the top of Alaska to down to California passing by Sturgis and Mount Rushmore National Memorial, from hell frizzing to bloody hot in five month, we rode along many other Harley's, but trust me, there, we were the hero, there, not many Transalp were seen riding on the famous Route 66, and few passionate about bikes that know about the "golden" Transalp could spot us among hundreds HD's.

Now you know what this Golden Bike is capable of, but not limited to.

On my return to London I had to recover for all those miles underneath my ass, basically, "I am too old for that shit".

Due to health issue, and style change, I am now sadly selling my trusted two wheels adventure's companion.
I am the second owner since 15 years(first owner rode on it 7400m/12000km in 10 years).

Full service report of the past 15 years of all maintenance available.
