My guess was off by 443.9 miles, but if he had Rusty's weather, I would have nailed it. :motonoises: Glad to hear you love her.

A friend of mine recently got a new Triumph Tiger Adventure.  He left the dealer, called his wife from 400 miles away, came back the next day, for his first service!  :motonoises:

Congrats

My first 1000 miles on mine was done in December and January with an average temp of 34.  There's noting Ike a new toy to make you forget about the weather.

WOW!!  what a bike!  5 minutes after leaving the dealership I knew I had made the right decision in purchasing a Connie. THERE WAS NO BUYER REMORSE WHATSOEVER!! Nor will there ever be. I'm hooked. I'm in love.
Connies Rule!! :motonoises: :great:

This bike is some serious fun.
Invest in a radar detector, my IRadar has already paid for itself threefold.

Glad you like the bike. No remorse..... Ditto  :great:

...After less than 5 minutes after leaving the dealership I knew I had made the right decision in purchasing a Connie. THERE WAS NO BUYER REMORSE WHATSOEVER!! Nor will there ever be. I'm hooked. I'm in love....

Congrats!!  I can honestly say I had the same reaction after 4 years, there is still no regret or remorse!

My 2009 is in for scheduled service and new tires at the moment and I am going nuts with anticipation- the honeymoon continues!

It will be a month (and almost 1400 miles) since I picked up my new 2012 C14 this coming Wednesday.

I've loved every minute of it!!!

Funny thing is, me and SO both got our bikes right around the same time, in crummy weather, but who cares, it's a CONNIE!!!

Best. Bike. EVER!
