I've thought several times that the Hornet motor in the wobbly bouncy Transalp frame would have been far nicer than the CB ever was (for me anyway).

I suppose I'll have to keep an eye on this thread now...(Wonder how much a secondhand Hornet and Renthals,Varadero wheels/forks and a longer shock would set me back...?)
