Came back to a Concours
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:45:32 pm »
Hi everyone.  Returned to the forum a couple of weeks ago after buying a 2017 Concours.  I had a 2011 Concours and after owning it for about a year, decided to try some other brands.  Since the 2011 Concours, I had a water-cooled BMW R1200 RT and a 6 speed FJR.  Both are excellent motorcycles, but found that for me, I prefer the Concours.  Riding the other bikes gave me an even greater appreciation for the  Concours.  I continue to learn a lot about these motorcycles from this forum and do appreciate all the contributions of information by the members.  So far I have added a Cox Radiator Guard and the Heli-bars 2 inch risers.  Very good to be back on a Concours again.

Hi,
       LOL! :-X

I've said it before, and will say it again!

The C14, just does so many things well... :great:

It's hard to beat it!!! ;D >:D >:D >:D
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

Thanks for saving me the time and effort of trying something other than the C-14.  :great: I always thought there was nothing better, and you did the research.

Just curious as to whether anyone else had a Concours, then rode another brand for a while, and then came back to a Concours?
