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.  :))

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.  :))

I don't think the have gone out yet?????  I haven't gotten mine either, then again I've never gotten one of these.  Fred has been great at getting me the Concourier so maybe when this one is available he can shoot one off to me. :beerchug:

Same here.  I recently joined, so I don't expect miracles.  But it would be nice to have it.

Fred is the rally meister for the National Rally (next week) so he may be a bit slow getting back to you. If so, it's not because he's ignoring you.

Sorry, I have been out of pocket the last couple of days, my grand baby is in town and that takes precedence over everything.   :))

I do not handle the mailing of the Member's Handbook or do I have any extra copies.  That is handled by the COG Directory Officer Dan Skane.  You should be able to reach him at directory@cog-online.org

Came in today, thank you sir. :great:

Got to figure a way to get our German physical address in there instead of the APO address.  Hmm, wonder how we could get that to work?
