Thanks for trying Phil. I have a pretty good idea of what you did even though I can't see it.

It turns out the US agent for Bagster is about 20 miles from my home (Chicago suburbs). Audrey, at Bagster, was kind enough to reply as well as forward my request to them (I followed up with an email of my own to Cima International). Hopefully the pricing will be within my budget and I'll be able to pick up at their location (to save shipping costs). Thanks again for all of the help - Dave.

In all reality, that was a very good write up.

Pity, a bike well ahead of its time, thrust into a market that had little or no idea of the dualsport or adventure touring genre.

It was a marketing debacle - pity!!

Cheers,
Tricky

I look through this thread and really miss having a big bike to have fun on, especially my Transalp, although one minute I slate them for being a boring bike it still niggles away at me that they are also one of my best bikes ever owned. But hey I will pop up my fav pic and my happiest memories on it. The Pyrenees is just superb

French travels


And home lanes

Yes was Millau, very fond memories of travelling around there, went from there up to Clermont Ferrand, Bourges and on to Le Mans... very nice riding


Had the best night ever on a motorbike also when we met a barman who said we could kip at his brothers house, as we were rough camping and it was a pig of a night. Any way this lad met us, gave us a meal and then left us in his house to have a shower and a great kip to go on his nightshift as a Tollbooth operator on the autoroutes. All he asked us to do was leave his front door key under a stone so he could get back in after his shift. Just awesome kindness



Its things like this that really make me miss my Transalp, I am now looking at buying number 4, if I can convince the wife
