Yes....yes I did...finally
« on: April 28, 2013, 12:24:12 am »
Hi everyone, my name is Brandon.....new member....and proud new owner of a new 2012 C14

I am coming from the vtx 1800c line of bikes from Honda....and the 30 miles since the dealer.....loving it!   I went down on the vtx (my first crasb) back on the 9th...blessed to walk away from it.  A car cut me off during a turn....luckily I hit the brakes but went down during the turn....low speed.  During the pain rehab here at home, Ive been reading up like crazy on various forums and ive made it happen!

Looking forward to many more posts!  Time to go for another ride!

haha "black is faster"....I actually REALLY liked the black one.....but this was the one the dealer had in my area......and I wasn't very patient.  Having said that, I'm very please with the color.

I'm in Southern California (South OC in Lake Forest/where the 405 and the 5 split)  Anyone else from the area?

Welcome in Brandon. There's several members near you in the great OC and LA area. Were working on getting this group of folks solidified. We have a great regional rally planned for Cedar City UT. June 7,8,9 and the National rally in Idaho Falls ID in August this year. Drop the dime on membership and it just gets better. Any questions shoot them to me. Love the color BTW.
