Hello from NH!
« on: April 03, 2017, 11:41:20 pm »
Hello folks!  I'm a new Concours owner - haven't even picked it up yet.  It's an 03 and wanted to start absorbing some of the specific technical information with this bike. 

Been building and riding bikes for about 17 years now, mostly in the Honda world.

Welcome to the madness Matt. The NE area has a lot of great people in it so be sure to check the event page and check
out something soon. I hope you have your bike ready and can swing by the Spring Fling in Bennington VT in May.
Hope to see you at a upcoming event.

Welcome!       Bienvenue!         Live Free Ski or Die!   

I'm enjoying the last weeks of ski season, there is still a lot of snow in the mountains.  http://www.cannonmt.com/daily-photo-live-cam.html

Welcome!
Beautiful state with great riding roads, if you can avoid the traffic. Was blessed enough to spend a few months working there a few years ago, and really enjoyed it.

Picked her up today.  She's really clean and shiny on the outside, but sat since 2011 with fuel in the tank and carbs.  The carbs are really really bad - lots of green goo inside, probably been bleeding a bit into the engine, so no touching the start button until the plugs are out. 

Either way, cool bike!  I like it!

Thanks!  I like Bennington - I ride through there a few times a year.
Welcome!  I saw the name of the town Bennington, VT and it brought back quite a memory.  Way back in 1980, I had a '77 KZ750.  Simply a bigger version of the KZ 400 air-cooled twin (and a fine machine, by the way).  I took a trip with a friend from Sanford, ME, to Schenectady, NY.  On the way back to ME, the chain broke at the top of a hill leaving Bennington.  I was much younger and much more stupid back then and had no chain tool.  We rolled back down the hill and just as the bike lost momentum, there was a tiny motorcycle place by the name of Warren Oates.  A gruff old fellow he was but he made a chain to fit that bike to get me home and much more.  I had very little money at the time and my friend asked me...can we afford this?  I had no idea.  The guy charged me around 25 bucks, I think, leaving me enough cash for one more tank of fuel - enough to get home.  There will always be a soft spot in my heart for Bennington, VT...and Mr. Oates.  Safe riding to you!  Phil
My Connie followed me home after the test ride...
