no way, black is a bad call.  its a stock color and NOTHING can beat that red! it is strong, sexy, and looks amazing on this bike!!!! that red should be offered as next years color...

C'mon Jay... Just break down and buy a Gen. 2 C14 will ya.?
That way, I can buy your leftover bodywork and Smuggler the next time you change colors! :beerchug:

Look forward to seein' those green wheels mounted- >:D

+1!!!!  >:D


Thanks brutha's, glad to hear you like my custom colors so far!  ;D :beerchug:

I understand the addiction to throw money into this thing...I'm probably close to 1 dollar per mile ridden, but I've put 11,000 miles on it since August!!!  I got this thing to ride as well as dump money into...

Your bike is so pretty ZG, get out and show it off more!!!

I wish I had the extra cash for a custom color conversion for my bike. I really like the red with  gold powder coat wheels. Those green ones would look sick on my black bike though. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. that one might be the ticket for me.

I've enjoyed ZG's various colors, since I've never had a chance to see a C14 those colors before.

ZG-

What year is your bike, and how many miles do you have on it?

09, 12k.

You're not going to be due for your first valve check until 2019...lol.

I'll try to follow along this time Jay.

The original 09 black with the black wheels was my favorite btw;).

Jay, you can do a mix n match.  Some black n green, black n red, and when Christmas rolls around, some red n green!  Perhaps a color of the month!   :1rij:
Torn, you should try a black and gold theme, and nickname it the John Player Special C14.  That could be cool.

Well I did buy her as a new leftover model, so it's actually only been 3 years of ownership, I am dreading that spendy 15k mile service this summer though RB...  :(

Glad you liked the original all black bro!  :great: :beerchug:

You should totally do that T, gold wheels with the black bodywork would look sick indeed!  8)

You have to admit, going back to black will make it much more easy to buy boots that match the cycle.

I never did like the thought of ZG in red boots

Thanks!  :beerchug:

That is correct, I live in sunny Florida, with all the boring, flat, straight roads you can take!  But no, it is not my main ride.  I have a car as well.  I just love riding!  Also, the more money I spend on it, the more I have to justify it by riding...

If you live in FL that makes more sense, much nicer winters than here in the PNW indeed! By "main ride" I wasn't referring to cars, I meant that it was your "main motorcycle ride", as in you only have one motorcycle or the Connie is the one of your many motorcycles that you put the most miles on.
