Put my MR-equipped C14 through its first paces, Sunday. Definitely smoother at low throttle, but with all the engine braking of before. More stable and confidant, coming out of turns. Thanks, Steve.

Here's mine, for a de-badged black 2012

Must admit, I'm closer to Alfred than Bruce  :??:

But which direction was your bike facing when parked? Really. Facing N,S,E or W. The sunrise, sunset. Moon tidal pull. Fung Shwei. (Not trying to be a smart a$$. Just trying to make you grin  :) ) 2011 60k miles mostly ethanol additive. Henderson NV. Low humidity. Parked on center stand facing east in the Garagio, usually never topped off ;)

Tires/Suspension C10 / Re: Tire help!!
« Last post by Jorge on December 14, 2017, 01:28:44 am »
I used a Commander II on the rear of my C10. It handled well, was responsive, great mileage, and had good grip... on dry pavement. I experienced several slips on wet pavement, and especially on paint stripes. I replaced it with about 50% tread left.
I replaced with Avon 3D X-M. It took a little to break them in, and until then, they wandered some, but after that, they were great.
There are many that have had issues with Avons, and swear at them, not by them... just saying.
Hey guys... another tire thread - LOL
Glad you found another Connie :great:

YOtube is a dump. It is a disease responsible for mental and physical harm done to human species.
Unless someone posts a technical/service/cooking video, I do not even consider YOtube a real source of information. Oh, and music is aight!
Cheers...

Hey, it's great for guitar lessons too...

That's debatable...  Nothing replaces interaction with an instructor, but it's a start!!!   :great:

I don't think it's the lack of humidity...
My 2012 has been in Florida all it's life. I bought it 14 months ago, and the PO also lives in FL.
Unless he did something to protect it, it's holding up quite well; looks nice and shiny. I fill the tank, ride until it's low, fill it, ride, and repeat.
I know he didn't top it off all the time because he told me about the time he coasted in to a station with 1 mile of range on the display.
I suppose there may be good production lots, and bad ones...
