Title: Got Home with my Concours
Post by: Scott_Hoover_GA on August 26, 2008, 05:57:00 pm
New Concours owner here. I bought my 2001 Blue Bike from a gentleman in Mass. Flew up with my girlfriend last Thursday and took delivery. Started back to south Georgia Friday. Took the costal route, 95 through Conn, NY, and NJ. Route 13 / 113 through Delaware and Maryland. Take the truck route! Went across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel which was great! Then out on the Outer Banks, taking the Oracoke Ferry back to the Mainland. Then made our way back to 95 and down to Savannah to pick up the car at the airport. 11 states and 1366 miles when I got home. Not bad for a first outing. The trip was fantastic, and the Concours did not disapoint. Very pleased with my choice to buy a Concours 10, and the individual bike I wound up with.

Sounds like a great ride. I was at Emerald Isle just last week on my '06. Wish I was still there... ::sigh:: Saw a C14 too, rode by while I was stopped for a fill up.

Hey Scott,  Welcome, and that's a helluva first ride!  Glad you enjoyed it.  I'm hoping to make it up that direction in Oct for the NE Bar Harbor rally.  Steve K.  '02 Concours  COG# 6550  AMA# 965469  'No matter where you go, there you are...'
