Ok; you moved up a couple of hundred pounds, have a fob, changed to a completely different transmission, ride in a very different ergonomic position and have an electric windshield. The twist and go of the throttle brings smiles. Is there anything from the Concours you would still want?

I honestly don't know.  I think the new wing is closer to c14 performance than most would care to admit, while having all the wing luxuries and fantastic wind managment. 

I think a Shoodeben/slipon c14 from 4000-9000rpm is still the best street motor I've ever twisted the throttle on

fyi; The Shoudaben/slip-on that you rode has been improved.
      Latest Flash's are producing more power and their smoother than the Mountain Runner was...

Ride safe, Ted
