Show us your best ever Transalp photo

Here's one from me to start the ball rolling. This was taken in 2009 in the Aude region of the Pyrenees on one of my favourite local trails.

YAY and new Transalp thread !!

A photo from when the bike was still a Transalp.

The ocean fog effect (light/dar division) was real. I had just ridden out of the fog bank into the sunshine. Dunno how I was able to photograph it...lucky.

And another on where the bike is today after mods:

A 20 year spread between the two bikes and the TransAlp definitely still holds it's own.

It’s easier to have a strong opinion with less information.

Check out forum.

Spanish Pyrenees, just across the border from Andorra, May 2008, my first European ADVrally. Bike very close to stock.

March 2010, somewhere on a trail in Northern Wales, UK. Not so close to stock anymore.
Honestly, have you ever heard of somebody looking back on his life thinking: "Oh, I should have travelled less and mowed the lawn more often"? (Pumpy)

want to save on Smugmug? use this code (VoUO8M1ukmnMY)

Always chase your dreams. Even if you don't catch them, you'll have a hell of a time trying.
