Connie number Four has been traded in for Connie number Five. It is the ABS/KACT/KTRC model. I already have nearly all the plastic taken off (naked) in the garage and am heavy into the farkling stage trying to get all my "stuff" put back on.

I believe that in the classic motorcycle photo genre you should be 19, female, wearing a bikini leaving little to the imagination and be draped across the fuel tank with a come hither look. We will understand (and appreciate it) if you decide not to attempt that pose however. :)

Congratulations Fred!  I, like many others will be interested to see how the slip-on, PC and fly removals affect the traction control and the low end performance, and if it's possible to install the mod.      Is the '08 - '09 version the only one for these mods or not?  I can't imagine going back to that Casper Milquetoast standard configuration after tasting the sweet punch of the flies out/PC and note of that neat Muzzy pipe.

I guess we know what you are you are giving thanks for this Thanksgiving.  Some of us haven't even had the pleasure of corraling 1 C14 yet. :-(
