Welcome.  Have fun- both in here and on the bike.  I'm sure you will enjoy the C14.

Welcome Fe 53man!  :finger_fing11:

The windscreen looks huge!

Yeah, might want to check with the FAA and see if it requires red light (http://www.unimar.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/LED_Red_Obstruction_Light_l810.pdf)s on top.  :)

Welcome Iron53man. Where are you located?


I'm guessing one of the "I" states from the picture. I going with Iowa until the Iron53man says different. However, half of that huge Corbin trunk might be across the line in Illinois.

OH, sorry I thought it was all just tobacco there.
 But..but..but doesn't Virginia require a safety inspection sticker be on the left side of the bike? (he said with fingers crossed on the come back.)

Iron53man, just ignore the comedians. Their just picking on you because their jealous...
A lot of that goes on here and is done in good fun. Everyone has their likes and dislikes on the bikes.
But what an individual chooses on his bike is his choice, not everyone else's...
Welcome to the group.
Now, ask Marty how his bike is shifting...

PS: Hey Marty,,, pppttttttt    ;D
Ride safe, Ted

haha thanks everyone! Iowa was correct! for the time being at least, currently hear for work, originally from Kansas... The windscreen is incredibly huge and so is the corbin trunk. both came with it from the previous owner. Currently deciding on keeping or getting a new windscreen and trunk. since i've got it i've added on some grip puppies, ram x-grip mount for gps, seat pad, and an xm satellite radio! it's been a fantastic machine, but this weekend i start a week long roadtrip to estes park and back so we will really find out how she rides!

Welcome to the forum. You know that bike will go a lot better on a horizontal road... just saying.  ;)

Actually yes on the inspection but it still could have been taken in VA (out of state bike)..  And you wouldn't have seen my inspection sticker as it's on the upper side of the left fork.
