C10 feature in August Rider
« on: June 29, 2017, 08:52:51 pm »
I just got the new issue of Rider magazine and there on page 82 is a new feature called ReCycling-- highlighting great bikes  and buys from the past. The first feature bike is none other than the 1986-2006 Concours. Not a bad assessment of our favorite sport tourer!

I think Rider should test Shoodaben or Rev's bike or some others here....they address most (except weight) of those little issues they spoke of!

Swampcat, wouldn't it be fun to see these bike testers with Shoodaben?

Rider is a great magazine!

I concur; but then I am biased. There are still a number of great print media MC mags in circulation, but they are dwindling. Some going to every other month, sigh.
2013 ZG-1400, 2005 ZX-10R (Nekkid), 2012 TW-200, 1999 TW-200....and more to come.

It would be great. They'd need to do a test side-by-side with a stock C10, though. Steve has told me several times that I don't really appreciate the difference since I don't have any experience with the unmodified version.

Rider is a great magazine!

+1

I too saw the column in the recent issue of Ryder.

A nice perspective on a long-lived cycle.

I appreciate that magazine's collection of articles that highlight places to ride also.  Even if I do not get to take a cycle tour in Europe, I like reading about those trips.

I didn't know that. You ARE spoiled!  ( And I'm jealous) :beerchug:

So send off an email to the writer at the magazine and offer him a Shoodaben experience.  Let him know about COG.... expand his horizons.

The author must not have heard about the hydrolock issues that seem to be the biggest concern

What do the writers net to do a comparison article ? A weeks pay ? Two weeks ? Maybe COG could crowd fund and just hire them. I'd chip in. Reading about Steve's experiments and and improvements on the C-10 has been very enjoyable.I'd love to see more data and hear direct impressions of the beast.
