downgrade?

Some of us choose the C-10 over the C-14 for the C-10's own merits, and not because we can't for some reason own a 14.

I don't like my bike being called a downgrade. I could easily own a 14, but I like a 10 better.  :great:

It took me a long time to bond with my C14 so much so that I continued to ride my C10 for more than a year although my C10 was heavily modified to the point where the suspension AND brakes were much  better on my C10  than my  C14.
Once I fixed those two issues I  eventually bonded with the C14.
The C10 is far better at protecting the rider in bad weather too.
I agree--C10 is not a downgrade at all.
