Exactly one year later .....
« on: August 11, 2018, 03:26:58 am »
One year ago today I crashed my 1986 Concours and managed to break my pelvis in the process. I have ridden a couple of times since on other peoples bikes, but I had other things to take care of before getting another one. Today I bought a 2004 Concours and so far I am quite happy. The previous owner did a lot of work and with the exception of a slightly sticky throttle (I'll look at it in the morning) ... I am very pleased. I had narrowed things down to an ST1100 and of course the Concours. The Concours was comfortable and suited my riding style so I chose to put myself back in the fold. Its good to be back. What was my first action on this new (to me) bike? I went directly to where i had the accident and laughed at the road.

BTW - The man I purchased this from is also a COG member and very cool guy.

Nice! Welcome back. C10 fits my body with accumulated injuries perfectly. Hands down it is the most comfortable bike I've ever owned. Ridden my buddies C14 and FJR , and although they are more modern, I just can't get comfortable on them.
