I think Wayne likes them because the name has wing in it. Whatever you get Wayne, be sure that the setup can carry your coffee equipment and supplies.

That grab rail is originally from PD10 and will fit, more details here:

Luggage rack, as Ray said, I would recommend also Givi Wingrack, I'm going to change existing rack on my bike to these Wingrack's as well.
Thanks for the link. The grab rail in the pic is from ebay.de and has since been sold. I'll be looking for another one. GIVI Europe it seems don't make the Wingracks for the '94-'96 TA model. Hmmm....unless I missed something. I only seen the tubular racks.

edit.. ok. I believe I found a part# http://old.itlcanada.com/internal2/i...es/076y131.pdf

Exactly.. MP had them on special sale for us Northern Californians.....last of their "Green Tools Sale".

It's particularly useful for throwing up against the left side windows of our cell phone using, texting while putting on makeup, braindead cage drivers.

Ive learned that you can't be too close when you shock 'em back into consciousness since they invariably swerve into the nearest ditch and roll their poorly handling SUV with 22 in rims.

Agreed. Love that you can see the pistons and individual cells of the battery.

This is truly one of those times when you can look at something you have seen for ever and a day, but you have never seen it this way. If those images were cleaned up in photoshop, they would make a great garage poster. I am really glad you got a shot of them scanning the bike!

You know you are getting older when downsizing is no longer an idea but a reality. I have been in the plannng stages of moving to a smaller location and that means I can't keep all the parts that I have. Boxed up this stuff takes a lot of storage room.

Since 99% of all the Transalps I restore end up being painted the 1990 red color I have little reason to hang onto 1989 white pieces. These parts are just way too nice to be stripped and paint over, that would be a crime.

So, this is just a heads up notice, they will be listed in the flea market soon and most likely on other sites as well. I wanted to make sure everyone here had a fair notice first, since finding parts of this quality and condition will most likely be very few and very far apart once these are gone. None of this is cheap.
