Title: I Just Bought a New-to-Me 2012 C14 in Columbia, Missouri
Post by: Shiny on December 07, 2017, 12:49:17 am
Hello COG's,

Today I bought a 2012 C14 in Arabian Red from Jones Honda in Columbia Missouri.  With only 9800 miles on the odo, it came with several nice upgrades.

My last two big bikes have been a '91, and a '94 Honda ST-1100.  I still have the 91.  While ST's are great bikes, it recently became obvious to me that the 1991 was getting a bit cranky and incontinent. It was time for a significant upgrade.

My first bike was a 1975 Kawasaki G4TR-E 100.  I was 13 when I bought it and we lived right outside of Ft. Hood, Texas.  I still look back at how the world has changed since then.  When I was 14 I could go ride all day on Ft. Hood.  I'm not saying I ever took that bike into the impact area, but I will say there are thousands of miles of tank trail on Ft. Hood.  It was heaven for a me.

Since purchasing that G4 in 1979, there have been many other bikes, and there have been some ex-wives. But I now am looking forward to some real distance touring on my new-to-me C14. 

I'd like to thank Connie owner, and member here, Mike Spickelmier (MizzouMike) for his assistance in acquainting me with the model and the COG tribe.

Welcome "again" Shiny...
I was probably riding at Ft Hood when you were there....
Didn't live in the area, but made semi yearly treks out there to ride the tank Trails.
Did some events with the Ft Hood trail Riders.
It's a shame that it's not possible anymore..

Ride safe, Ted
