Let's keep the roll call going. Alain, you're 8. I know of at least two more in Oregon, one more in Colorado and one in Wisconsin.

Just passing through and noticed the topic, Clockwatcher in Western N.C. owns one.

They seem exceeding scarce east of the Mississippi.

That's an interesting topic, as I would presume most are in Europe. However with that said, you don't really see them that often over here either. Perhaps their all in hiding?

That's been a well kept secret, I have not heard of or seen his AT anywhere and High Point is only 20 miles from me, I was just there yesterday. Can we arrange a personal viewing?

Say Yes....MAS335 has been lovingly restoring Transalps. He's due for a new challenge.


I see an import business in his future.

Ha! I figured that might get your attention! I'll send you a PM.

Hi Ladder,
old friend! As far as I know you've got an 'African Alp'. Does that count?
Kindest regards to you, Ladder, with Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year! And so for all of you here!
But I feel with you all out here! Bikes like the Africa Twin and the Suzuki DR 750/800 for example were imported in loads here to Central Europe (including Germany) were you're not allowed to leave the paved road with your bike and have fun in the dirt. And many of you out there all over the world just have to step out of their door to leave the concrete ...
Be assured, the pic Kenyon placed here only shows a very small amount of the assembled Africa Twins at that meeting. I haven't been to that place but there's a lot of these Twins here in Germany. Being a Suzuki-DR-Big-rider, our own annual gathering usually sees about 120 bikes. And not every one of our forum is able to take part ...
Btw, today, I read an interview with Honda's manager for the on-coming Dakar in a German bike-magazin. He said that Honda wants to put their so-gained rallye-experience into a new off-road-tourer with 1.000 cc. Silver-line on the horizon?
Kind regards, Bambi

Thanks for setting this up, I will contact your brother after the Christmas rush, Right now I'm busy boxing up an entire disassembled TA engine to ship to a guy called Ladder!

In all my years of riding I have never passed or saw another TA on the road unless someone was on one of mine, running into a AT seemed completely impossible, can't wait to see it.
