Allright, who set the wayback machine to 1984? What a blast from the past, I used to have one of those. It was a fun bike as long as you didn't try to go fast, of course it didn't have any power to speak of. A problem shared by it's big brother the Hawk GT, yes I had one of those too, the same problems underpowered and undersuspended. Good fun if you didn't push to hard.

It's good to have an open mind,
just not so open that your brains fall out. Joe

I'm getting too old to hang off and drag my knee . . . maybe.

I sold my Transalp this week. Same engine family as the Ascot twin and the Hawk GT. Needed the money for Fiero parts. but I sure hated to sell it.




For the first time in thirty years, I'm without a motorcycle!!!!
