Maintenance and repairs up to now14489
Kilometrage april 2014191000

Maintenance / km: 7.6 eurocents.
Fuel consumption: 20 km/l.

At 102000 km a friend rear-ended me. The damage was 1607 euros. Most plastic was gone...

As it's 10 years and 183650 km ago now that I bought the Transalp I figured it was a good moment to close this page and make a summary of the first decade. In the winter of 2014-15 the engine was replaced by one I bought years ago and which ran 30000 km in a police bike. Of course I'll continue reporting about the cost of ownership, but on an other page.
