Still nobody participating at the Rallye ? We were more than 240. Some must still ride and be members here !
I would be very happy to see other people's pictures of this same event.


Cabo Da Roca : the most western point of Europe.




Near the side of the cliff. Always the same sea haze.



The rallye was only about hard riding all day long...

always riding

always riding

still always riding


Always riding but some times riding an other kind of beast : Check the hairy handlebar !


Almost always riding...

Thanks for the pictures they are GREAT! I just sold my 1992 TDM 850 to buy a 1989 Trans alp, we must be on a comon path, moving in oposite directions

That's just superb, thank for sharing. I'll bet a good percentage of those bikes are still around.

Did all of the '87 models have that blue & white paint scheme? I think I like that better than the red/white/blue of my '89.

Hej Oliver, you bring back some nice memories. I'm still out there on the old Transalp (348315 km)

There's only one for July 5th:

The Gorges du Tarn.
July Mercredi 5th 1989, 13:06, km 157,4 that Day

Pic below, August 5th 2011, 13:55
Gorges du Tarn always nice for a Ride. Drove two day of the old Roadbook backwards. Millau - Langeac.

Awesome! I've never owned one, but I've always had a strange attraction to the TransAlp. One of these days, I'll snag one.

Hi Per,

348 315 km, wow ! Respect !
By the way is it a Transalp or a Ratalp ?

Thanks for the video. I have the full length on a VHS but no way to digitize it.

Nice to see your great photos and good memories of a bike that is a timeless classic!

Unfortunately, I just crashed my 1990 TA yesterday when a driver made a illegal left turn in front of me. I've got a sore shoulder and hip but no apparent broken bones - my TA was not so lucky though . If it is totaled, I will almost certainly hunt down another clean example and buy it as the Transalp has been the most reliable, fun bike I have owned.

Cheers Olirider!

Dave
