    Zack rides the Transalp. As a vicarious motorcyclist I’ve been waiting for this one. I’ve been a fan of Honda motorcycles since I was a kid, and an owner of several Honda cars.

    Whilst I'm wiping drool...............

    I sold my last motorbike in 2005. Have not been near one since - miss them like an amputated limb.

    I was in our regional capital town/city last week (a very rare occurrence) and I stepped into a motorcycle store (and even rarer occurrence) The smell of motorcycles was intoxicating. My heart rate rapidly elevated and I truly became as giddy as a kid in a lolly shop. That particular smell of motobikes - petrol engines, motor oil, chain lube fresh fat rubber hoops - the smell hit me like an arrow - I was instantly transformed back to my riding/racing days. Just standing still, bearing witness to a rank of motorbikes on their sidestands on a shop floor gave me a huge adrenaline rush.

    Made my day, my week, maybe even my month.

    Someone parks a KTM 390 on the street outside my wife's apartment in Paris (not my wife - I mean, I don't think my wife has a KTM - does she?) that is all black with just the frame bit that holds the motor beneath the tank painted orange. I could see having that instead of a scooter.

    (searches interwebs) like this one only with more scratches and scars:>

    I live within walking distance of a Triumph dealer. You’ve described why I haven’t walked there. Yet.

    Just once is enough. I used to own a dealership where we sold H-D. Still don’t like ‘em.
