C-14, aka Concours-14 GTR 1400 / Re: Question; 2010 or 2008? C14
« Last post by Gabriel on Today at 10:16:18 pm »
Gabriel, I would of course buy the '08, but only if it was ABS. I have an '09 ABS, find it superior in looks, and the heat is not a bother as long as the foams are intact, and you wear some boots.
This 08 does not have ABS, I have never owned a bike with ABS and I have owned over 75 of them. I would have to get used to ABS, I trail break and back-in occasionally, ABS might hair-lip me at first?
I can still get the foam inserts and on my 09 I even insulated the fuel tank because it got pretty warm.
I owned an 08 and an 09 and they looked the same to me except the 09 had a nice red color.
The 08 was faster, for whatever reason? If you opened the throttle in low gear the 09 would lift the front wheel about a foot maybe, but the 08 would flip over backwards if you stayed in it. The flies were swatted in the 09 also.
Thanks...

Hardly vague!
Don't try to read into this more than there is. I intentionally left it pointed because I did not need an opinion about price, so I included the only criteria I was concerned about including the problems with the 2010, there are no know problems with the 08 so i did not mention it.
Thanks for your answer

well, seeing as you didn't bother to tell US the price... unless it was $4500 I'd say there is a reason the '10 is being dumped off, and the price on the '08 is about right...

and depending on if the '08 was well maintained, and the '10 was owned by one of the "I'm not gonna touch the valves, they are fine... my mechanic said they don't need to be touched" clan, I'd still buy the '08.

pretty vague question, with no actual information other than miles... come on, make it worth reading...

If you had the option to buy a 2008 with 33K or a 2010 with 90K all else being the same with the exception that the 2010 has the as usual valve cover leak and the fork seals are weeping, which would you buy?
They are both the same price...

Yes sorry, didn't mean to not give props for chiming in and the info.  Just a bit shell shocked looking up the price for the damn thing. Almost $300.

yeah, I included the price for them in my post with the numbers... if you didn't believe me, well, all I could do was give you that...

some of us are here to help ya, whether you read our posting or not...
reading something posted as was, you should be able to understand that.

maybe scroll back up there, and download and read the attachment I made to that post, showing exactly how to replace the bag latch.
.. so you don't have to ask a second time, and I didn't waste my time posting it for you.
best of luck, ride safe

Someone tried breaking into the bag and busted the handle.  Looking for someone selling a damaged box that I can buy and just ship me the handle.

Thanks. I carry so much stuff I need both side bags and the top case.  Helmet storage in top case and lunch, Rain gear and jacket in side case and gym bag in the other.  I had to take off the side bags for the sake of not looking goofy. LOL
