I'll have this titled and in my possession in under 2 weeks.

Mysterious Red Sunglo/Velocity Red Sunglo, heated touring seat, Sirius/XM, Baker Drivetrain F6R six-speed transmission with mechanical creeper reverse



Too late to ride out to California to retrieve the TimeOut camping trailer, but I'll do it in the spring so I have it for camping in Georgia at least.

A drive-onto conversion, I think. They are ugly and way too wide of track.

Congrats on the new ride!  I rented/rode one of the 'water cooled' bikes last summer, and I really liked the upgrade from my air cooled!

Thanks! Handling a heavy 2 wheel bike has become just too difficult at stops and such for me, so this will keep me riding a long time. And it will tow my TimeOut trailer and I won't even have to hook up the electric brakes on the trailer.  :great:

I can't find it in the specs but it must have differential drive rather than a live axle (which would be crazy). Is it chain final drive to the differential?

Also, comes with cruise control, very cool.

We will anxiously await a ride report. How long until delivery?

The final drive is belt drive to the differential. It has air shocks (adjustable).

I get the money next week, then go to M&S and work out the order details (for the addons). Then no idea how long after that, the bikes are available, they have 3 of the 2016s just not the color I want. Maybe if they give me a $5,000 discount I'll take a different color.  :rotflmao:

Just got back from a 1750 mile tour in New England, and I agree the C14 is a handful at stops. I'm 5'9, 160 pounds. I love the bike at speeds above "0" mph. I'm considering a smaller, lighter touring bike like a Versys or Honda NC700V. My friends rode a 650 Versys and a 600 Yamaha and we all had fun. My Tom Tom Rider Winding Road GPS took us on some great 2 lane roads and the smaller bikes worked great. Retirement takes away time constraints, so there is little need for highways!!!

At 64 I also notice I have to concentrate more on everything going on around me, so a lighter bike should eliminate some tension. A trike would be a consideration in the future to enjoy motor sports. BB

There sure is a cognitive difference as we grow older, without a doubt. Add to that the secondary conditions I have as a result of TBI, like cognitive disorder, and the issue is amplified.

Tension? What's that? Kidding, I know what you mean, in spades.  :beerchug:

This machine will help me continue riding for a very long time. And it will pull my TimeOut trailer like nobody's business!  :motonoises:

LOL I emailed Aerostich and asked if they made a Roadcrafter vest in black leather. No response, yet.

I actually still have my leather vest from American Legion Riders club, with the big insignia and rockers on the back. I doubt I'll ever wear it again.

But my man, I do have to get more do-rags, dontcha know?  :rotflmao:

I figure if you guys can get loud pipes for your C14s, I can get loud pipes for my Tri Glide. Vance & Hines makes a great full system for it, and the sound is awesome!  :nananana:

Slight change, saw the Mysterious Red Sunglo/Velocity Red Sunglo version in person and fell in love with it, so that's what I am getting. Plus its in the showroom, so I will have it within 2 weeks.

Have to wait for the Baker Drivetrain F6R transmission to be delivered, and for the heated touring seat, Sirius/XM module, and heated grips to be installed.

 Nice JR,
               the maroon red I was going to suggest putting gold next to chinese red pinstripes on it but it looks like they are already there. That maroon kawasaki I had in the 80's looked great that way. All I remember of the bike was it was a new 83 with chain drive and 550 cc I think. Damn my memory is already fading at 54. That was the bike I wrecked in, may be my brain trying to block it out. It looked like an LTD but I think it was something else. Back then I wanted the Vision.  The next one was a Virago, the ugly one not, the gold chromed one.
     I really like you're Trike. That is the route I will go if i live that long to need it. :)

JR is Badass Cool  :great: :great: :great:
