Long Beach MC show
« on: December 06, 2009, 07:20:00 am »
I went to the Long Beach Cycle World MC Show on Saturday with Three   other motorcyclists, who came down from Central California for the   show.      One used to be a die hard Honda owner, but now owns a '05 FJR.  He   is unhappy with the FJR and looking for something new.  One is a   sport bike owner.  One, I have no clue what he owns but is looking   for a KLR or V-Strom.    Although we did not get there in time to get test rides, the unbiased   conclusion of 3 of us was that the '10 Connie was the best bike at the   show.  The other guy is too short to reach the ground on the Connie.    There were other bikes that the guys liked, but the three of us all   mentioned the C-14 at being the nicest and most comfortable, even   the guy with long legs!    Generally the other two agreed with me that the C-14 seating and peg   positions were really comfortable--much more so than my C-10--  that you don't have to lean forward very much, and that has the   absolute best price for what you get.      The new FJR has not changed.  No one was impressed by anything   Honda offered, especially because of the small tanks.  I also liked the   Royal Enfield Bullet, which is now legal in California, primarily because   they are still pretty inexpensive.    Oh, I did hear some guy complain that he didn't like the C-14 because   it was blue and all of his riding equipment is red.    _____________________________________  raulb        2003 Connie  COG #6043  CDA #281  AMA #699463    "It may not be smart or correct, but it's one of the things that make   us what we are."    --Red Green, "The New Red
