New Member from Southern CA
« on: June 21, 2017, 02:36:36 am »
New membe from SoCal.  I actually live in the Orange County area.  I took a MSF class in December 2016.  I've been addicted since then.  My first bike was a 2017 Versys 1000.  I put about 3,200 miles on that bike.  Did a lot of research on the Concours and was looking at some used ones.  I spoke with the dealer I purchased the V1K from and he gave me a great deal on a 2017 Connie.  I have put 1,400 miles on it in about a months time.  I put 2" inch risers on the bars and dropped the pegs courtesy of Murph's kits.  I ordered a Sargent modular world seat that I'm waiting for.  I'm 6'7" so I need some room.  So far I love this bike.

Very nice.  I've got about 7 years or so left before I retire and plan on moving to Idaho..... Boise area.  SoCal (asylum) is nice, but I'm over it!!!

Another new Concours owner stopping by to say hi.  I'm upgrading from a Versys 650 -- love that bike, but needed a bit more room for 2 up traveling.
