Review of the 1987 Honda XL 600 V Transalp (reduced effect):
She Always Stands at the Back
Author: H H Shaw, 2006-09-02|
The Tranny is a bike to own, and get to know. So often overlooked it should be everyone´s first test ride. Criticism of the bike misses the point.
The Tansalp is soft, and relaxed, yet will dash about like a six year old who´s eaten too many E numbers. She is light and agile but still cruises easily on highway and by-ways. Stacked with luggage the rider hardly notices the weight because this bike can cover miles or slip through towns with amazing ease.|
The seat massages the backside delightfully, whether you´re ringing its neck or pottering around a National Park.
You will be aware of the lack of top end eventually, but only when you are desperate to get to work after dragging yourself out of bed an hour after the alarm warned you its time stir. who needs sportsbikes¿ Transalps will do what you need without fuss and hide their lights behind bigger and flashier kit, but if you need a bike to slowly fall in love with, this is the one.
