So I just bought a Connie
« on: December 01, 2017, 10:08:07 pm »
Hi everyone, I'm a new guy from Iowa that just picked up a 2006 Connie in Blue.  I think I like this thing!  Anyway, I just wanted to say hi.

Welcome to the forum.  The '06 is wonderful bike, though I may be partial.

Good luck and safe riding!

Hello Dan,
Welcome to COG, and congrats on your new ride. The 2006 is a classy color, for a really great bike.
Lots of people with great knowledge here, so ask away if you need anything.

Welcome aboard from another Iowan. No doubt the best color :). Started with an '06 also.

As I'm on my 4th (red) Connie I'll have to respectfully disagree with blue being the best color.
But, it's close.    ;)

Welcome to the Forum. Come ride with us!!

PS: When your ready, we'll be more than happy to help you spend your money on Farkles.
      We just happen to know of a few good ones!

Ride safe, Ted
