Hi y'all! Houstonian back from 2011
« on: September 08, 2019, 01:52:40 am »
Not exactly new here.  I had a C14 a decade or so ago (and was active on the forum at that time).  Loved that bike; completed my SS1000 on it.  But alas, I moved on to a different bike.  I've always missed that Concours.  Well, here we are, several years and several bikes later and I just had to fill that void.  I picked up a 2019 last week.  Took it for a 250 mile ride today.  Boy, does this bring back some memories...the feel, the ergo, the engine response, the balance.   :great:  This will be a perfect complement to my silver Road King.  Such different bikes.

I'm in Houston by the way.

Welcome back Dwayne.  Ted and Bob are still around in Houston area and maybe more.  Come ride sometime.  As you remember though not much will happen till spring.  Most of the fall rides done happen.  If you are in Austin though look me up and I can show you the twisties here.

Thanks for the welcome.  I do make it up to Austin from time to time.  I've hit many of the roads on the Butler map, but I'm sure there are plenty that I haven't seen.

Beautiful bike and matching colors.
When we were kids we marvelled at the ninjas stats. Then there was Nintendo games with the c10 in it.

When I was looking at anything affordable I had Honda in mind but right before I almost jumped at a collectors ascot I saw a c10 and everything clicked then I remembered everything.
