hi. i am interested about motorbikes from my 12-14 years. mostly old bikes fix and ride. when i was older i bought bike and made some modification on it. i tried sport bikes, choppers, supermoto but finally i discover enduro (dual sport) bikes is category for me. i bought bmw GS1150 2001 and i had it about 10 years. i did some trips around europa. i liked bike. problem was that bike was so heavy for me when i had to move it- push it while parking or lift from ground. i started thinking buy something smaller and lighter. i found one used and cheap honda XL600V transalp 1998. when i brought it at home i started understand why was cheaper. and here start my story with repair and modification. i will add pics of repair and mods.
