Just received mine. Nice job as usual, but a question re the cover art: no C10s? Are those of us with "classic" tastes being phased out? :-)

I doubt there is any plan to phase you guys out.  But for the first time I went to a rally with over 50 attending and did not see a single C10.  Times do change I guess.  I would trade my C14 for a C10 ergos today if it was fuel injected.

Good grief, NO!  Just happened to be the artwork. C10's will always have a place of honor in COG!

We've now come full circle.  When the C14's first came out the C14 owners where complaining about the new bike not being shown enough in the artwork.  :))

No one is a TOTAL failure; they can always be used as a bad example.

All meant in fun. I'm sure the oldies (bikes & members) are still welcome. Like smithr1, I once counted 14s vs. 10s at a rally.
I don't remember exact numbers, but 14s outnumbered 10s about 3:1 and that was a number of years ago.

I've never ridden a 14, but from specs and owners' testimony Kawasaki did an outstanding job on the update. Only wish they
had done the same with the Voyager XII.

I think the last RTE I attended had 5 C14s, 5 C10s, and about 5 assorted others." ...Stay for the people..."

The C10s were riding too fast and fell off the strip.  :))
