New Concours Owner
« on: June 21, 2019, 07:41:25 pm »
Hello all!

I'm a new member of the owners group and the forum. Just picked up a 2012 C14 2 weeks ago. Logged almost 1500 miles so far. Have been riding for 17 years and have been in love with the Connie since they released the 1400. Used to work in the industry selling Harleys and while they'll always be my first love they just don't do the kind of riding I like to do. This is my third Kawasaki and I can already tell that it's the best bike I've ever owned.

Headed to the Tail of the Dragon next month to test it out on my first overnight trip. Hope to meet some folks online and on the road.

 :welcome: to COG at your new bike. Yep, my C-14 is the best bike - by far - that I've owned over the years. I've had numerous cruisers, touring bike and several sport-touring ones.

Enjoy it and be careful at the Dragon; a lot of dangerous bikers on that thing ... unless you can catch it on a week day. Weekend, not recommended IMO.

Welcome Red, I see you're in the SE.  I live in N. Alabama (in Athens, where we have meth-fueled attack squirrels), where are you at?
If you can't fix it, at least break it trying.

Hey there! I thought it was SE but I think I'm actually in the NE region for the COG. I'm in Richmond VA. Never been through Alabama but got the right vehicle for it now.
