The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: What did you do to your Concours today?

Yesterday I replaced the Oxford hot grips.  They still worked but at 147,000km I'd worn through the left hand side grip and the wires were showing.  Now to wear the new set out...

We finished all three 'seasons' of Black Mirror. That's some damn good writing! Dark but very well done.    :thumbs:

Wow- I just finished watching all 4 "seasons" (I use that term faintly) over the last week.  A few episodes were "meh" but most of the others were really great!  Highly recommend.

Several years ago I was at the DMV for license renewal , and there was a large family of people from the far east (what can I say without being banned or sued?).  There was about 10 or 12 or so.  When the guy at the counter called "Number 8", they all went to the counter at once.  They had taken ONE NUMBER for the whole group.  The counter guy wasn't having it.  He yelled at them, something like, "Look, only ONE of you is number 8... YOU..... YOU are number 8.  The rest of you SIT DOWN!!!"

Laughed my butt off.

As for service, my fiance had three vertabra fused two weeks ago, and I have to say the nursing staff at Seattle Swedish Orthopedic Center was just fantastic.  They treated her like the queen of the planet.  (She thinks she is anyway.)  Just can't say enough good about the care she received there.

Changed the rear tire last night, then installed it today. I replaced the cracked plastic shock guard (black plastic piece on the side of the front fender). Cracked when I hit the rabbit. Then I installed the Pazzo levers I bought a while back. Took it out for a ride to scrub in the new tire and try out the new levers.  :thumbs:

I'm sure this will be gone shortly, but it's worth the time...

I guess there isn't that much great customer service going around, it's been kin of dead in here lately.

  I don't know what made me look closer at it (Vin) but I noticed it was missing a character (11th).  Told the service guy about it and all of the service people say it's going to be an ordeal to get it fixed.  Oh my..

While we are waiting for some excellent customer service to show up, I'm hoping I can ask a question here.
 What was the big ordeal of fixing a leaking fork without the vin. I've looked over the parts fiche and it looks like the seals are the same.
I noticed the reference to the vin # in both the '08 and '09 but I'm thinking it's only because some have the speed sensor boss drilled out
for ABS, and non-ABS don't have it drilled out. I went down the lists side by side and didn't see any different part numbers for individual parts except the right hand
lower fork (drilled or not drilled) but I could have missed something. Was there some mid production fork change in the GEN I that I've missed hearing about?

You never said what your needs are. Are you going to smoke or grill or both?
Haven't pulled the trigger yet. Rec Tec is definitely in the running if I can get past the premium. I understand quality doesn't come cheap, though.
