The TransAlps were short-lived in the States, but they did attain cult status in Europe, akin to the KLRs here.
I had the opportunity to wring out a TA in Colorado last season: a fun machine indeed.

A great video, brings a big smile to my face! Thanks!

Cheers! Funny you should mention the KLR - over here in the Netherlands they don't sell them at all.

This Summer I had the pleasure of just trying one on for size thanks to a German I met on the road, and I immediately understood why you Americans love'em so much

True, that's about as 'bike-related as it gets, my apologies for that... I've been sitting at a desk for days doing data entry (while not having been paid since August and not having had a day off either since that time) and can feel my brains leaking out. The psyched comment was with regards to it playing in the background to help me get through these exceedingly dull days (although Tool are also doing their bit), rather than anything psyched-on-the-bike-related.

Apologies all 'round and all good stuff for 2014!
I've been there man. Self employed. After long periods of inhuman stress, weird things start to make sense.

Very well observed. Was going to cringe if there some metal, trance, or Nickelback playing!
