    Hello,

    Yesterday i finaly bought myself a Transalp. I ride motorcycles for 18 years now. And always wanted a Transalp. But for some reason i never bought one. My last motorcycle was a Suzuki GSX750F. Nice bike, but i couldn't ride it longer tthen 30 minutes. My body then starts to hurt. So i looked for an other (comfotabler) and so finaly i bought a 2006 XL650V Transalp.

    Here's a picture of the bike during the testride.

    Double Trouble... that's the bikes of course, not me and my old buddy John. Stopped for a coffee break in Foix after a ride out in the Pyrenees.

    Cheers

    Hi, Herrstedt, seems like we are riding the same bike.
    I&#8217;ll upload some pic&#8217;s next week.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Correct me if I&#8217;m wrong; is that a touratech adapter to adjust the height and angle of your screen?
    I&#8217;m looking for something to keep a bit of wind of my helmet while going down the highway.
    Since I&#8217;m 1m85 my head gets the beating, is ok for a while but for the long rides it not so comfortable.<o:p></o:p>
    What are your experiences?
    I thought about ordering a removable spoiler but I hear pro&#8217;s and con&#8217;s.<o:p></o:p>
    Greetings from Belgium!

    Ya those are wolfman bags but I want to know about the pannier rack. I pmed him he has some home made pannier hoops. Im looking for something to keep soft bags like his in place without the full pannier rack.
