Hello,
I just purchased a 2002 silver C10 with 30K miles on it. I was looking at either the C10 or a BMW r1100 or K1200. I found this practically immaculate ride and couldn't pass it up.

I am a US Army combat veteran and the last time I rode was right before I joined the military in 2003. And the was a 1987 Honda Shadow 500. Before that was around 1996 I owned a 79' Kawasaki K650. I am really looking forward to getting to know this C10 and from looking around here I can tell I am in the right place.

I was on a forum as a pretty heavy user for a BMW group when I owned an E46 99' 323 and can tell you that a place like this is invaluable for the knowledge and camaraderie.   

These pictures are taken after I bought it at the previous owners house.






Thanks,
Steve

Steve, WELCOME.
 Your gonna like it here.

One important thing.
  Never tell someone your Concours is Silver, nor Grey, tell them it's "Silverdammitt".

There's a story behind that and I'll let others explain that very important piece of COG trivia..

Ride safe, Ted

Well after looking around I decided to go ahead and make myself a full member. I also registered for the September 8th Mt. Hood loop. So I hope to meet some of you NW folks out there.
