Not to worry Modrover. I still appreciate my 'alp as much as the day I rode it home in 1994. It's for sure staying with me. You really owe it to yourself, tho, to go and give a KTM 950 a spin. They are much like the Transalp, only higher and with balls. (the suspension is a big upgrade too) RE: Darkside Whatcha gettin at Rover??? Yeah, maybe the avatar looks a bit darth vader-ish, eh?
