Try this one, in Triumph Glasgow. I know (was) the previous owner.
Nice big panniers, low mileage.
My mate has one , I've never ridden it , probably a better bike for the road than the tenere is , just wondering how the Transalp would compare to the 800 triumph ?

I bought the Trannie mostly for running round back roads at an easy pace taking in the scenery, for which it was brilliant. Fairly comfy on longer runs and OK up to about 85 on the motorway, after which it is a bit buzzy.
Pulls like a train despite low power, great motor. Keeps your right foot warm in the winter.
I changed mine as I wanted more of a mile cruncher and the Tiger is really comfortable at any speed, mine is the road (XRT) version with a few bells and whistles as standard, but nothing you can't add yourself.
I have taken it out on some of our local rough moor roads and it handles it well, the Trannie was slightly better at the rougher stuff though, where the Tiger suspension crashes a bit (though it is road suspension).
There isn't really a direct comparison to be made I suppose, they are both upright bikes with big front wheels in the same Catagory, but where the Trannie is laid back the Tiger is eager and where the Tiger gets it on, the Trannie doesn't like to be pushed too hard. The Trannie was discontinued about 5 years ago, so no fancy screen or computer; but is that a bad thing.
People have been all over the world on both, so no issues there, just pick one that suits your needs and (current) personality.
If I had the space, I would have kept it.
