Ya know....I never understand these comments. You start by saying you don't wanna piss on his parade....then you do just THAT??

Maybe a warning would be kinder like: Get ready 'cause I'm about to piss on your parade.........(followed by the insulting part)

So....here goes.....(yeah, this is the warning bit)

I'm gonna tell you what I think of the above comment:

Carlos has put a lot of time, effort and money into building a AT replica (so have I). Obviously, if ATs were more redily available we'd have one of those but in many instances the "wanna-be" model is all that can happen. It may even be an improvement on the standard AT depending on your riding and point of view.

If you want only "true" AT riders with matching serial numbers posting here, I'm sure we can restrict our comments to the Transalp thread......because......I wouldn't want to piss on your parade.

There is no offence, so no need to apologize. And your opinion is always welcomed!

Check my posts

I have stated in past posts that a Honda by any other name is still a Honda
When I first asked if AT riders wanted to meet up I didn't say if your riding a trans-twin Africa-alp stay home. I just don't think a person riding a 600cc
bike can fairly state the larger tanks are going to cause problems on a 750 .

Maybe it's winter and I'm having cabin fever creeping in on me. The statement was never meant to throw the wanabe card as a f^#k you play.

Sorry for that. I have a little project in my garage that take will some left over transalp parts, a 250 vtr, and a xr200 to build what I hope to be a baby transalp. I havn't thought about a name for this baby beast, but transtarx comes to mind.

Thats what had me confused. Thanks for clearing it up.

Maybe "Transknoll" would be an appropriate name for the lil' guy.

Deep freezzzzeeee!!!!!!!

Well I must admit sitting in my house waiting for the deep freeze to pass over my neck of the woods I was thinking that island guy Carlos is out riding as I type this. I was waiting to spring my xrvtr250 thing of mathing
for summer when I could start to really get the thing started.
The project was thought of from the creative stuff that I saw in the tranalp mod thread.

And as always Jim, YOU ROCK!

Bars .....

No .... not that type, , of bar ........

K .... so I'm still searching for bars for copperhead - soon to not be copperhead - and I really haven't found what I'm looking for.

The Renthal Dakar bars are very close to the OEM bars, but with further investigation on them, they're shorter in height than the stock bars. The sweep is almost the same, though .....

With that said, I could in fact score some OEM bars for an RD07. Cost for the bars and shipping from Germany will run me about the same as buy some new pro-tapers, or renthals .......

So my first question is - is there any difference with the bars on an RD07 v.s. the RD04?

Second - and I'm sure this is going to sound stoopid ...... but why, in every pic I see of bars on Ebay.de, does it look like the right side of the bar has a slightly different "angle" to it than the left.

See attached pic for example ........
