"Back In The Fold"
« on: November 03, 2014, 11:20:48 am »
As a former COG member and having previously owned and thoroughly enjoyed a 99" Concours I recently had the opportunity to buy a low mileage 05' with slight mileage (27,xxx)!  Is it great to be back riding such a wonderful motorcycle or what!!!  Rejoining COG was a MUST and I'm really hooked on reading all the postings that cover this very unique M/C.  Hydro Lock Test proved OK; new plugs; new Dunlop tires front and rear; all brakes completely refurbished; free "Mo' Power" mod accomplished; new Rifle W/S; programmed SISF carb spa.....and the list goes on!  Wife thinks I'm "almost" OK but neighbors think I'm "affected" as this beauty joins a host of other M/Cs in the garages!!  At 73 years young I've always said, " You don't get too old to ride a motorcycle; you get too old not riding a motorcycle".  Smiling from ear to ear................

Hard to resist buying an '05!
Mine has about half that many miles when I got it this spring. Riding is about over up here, but I'm off work today and may take it for a spin after it warms up this afternoon (it's 25F out now) fill it up with gas and Stabil and then park it until spring. Already parked the 2002 last week. :truce:
Snowmobiles, I have a bunch.
Motorcycles-I haven't had anything except dirtbikes 30 years ago, so this will be all new to me.
2005 C10 with Rifle w/s, SISF Exhaust sprocket, overflow tubes, 2 minute jet mod. (SOLD)
2004 Honda ST1300-the current mule.
