Well, you could try three places.  The UK forum is pretty good and I think totally devoted to the GTR1400.


Indeed Sparky, I like it over there too, but have to google some of the words...  ;D :chugbeer:

example:
Look at the post counts on here for the C14 and C10 sections, 90k posts in C14 section vs only 20k posts in the C10 section...
Over on COG, it's 45k posts in the C14 section vs 55k posts in the C10 section.
Not that there's anything wrong with the C10's (ok maybe there is...  ;) j/k ;D
More posts in the C14 sections would seem to indicate that there's more wrong with the C14s than the C10s.   ::)

Well, spit the dummy Gov!

Yeah, you need and English - English converter for that place. And then a monetary converter. And a map. The coup de grâce for me is when they mix in French terms though....  :rotflmao:

Could be. But maybe it is just because so many C-10 guys are dialing into their local BBS to chat about their bikes....?  Usin' lots o' scary words like 'petcock' and 'hydrolock' that have not made it to the Interwebs yet.

 ;D

Wow when I posted this topic I wasn't sure I would get much response but reading through all these I found myself chuckling out loud and having a good time. I do believe that would hint to me that I am on the correct forum. I know I have found terrific help here in the couple months I have been on it. I have PMed a few people and everyone seems to be more then willing to help and some going out of there way and I much appreciate that and the good vibe it gives me. Roll on my brothers and thanks for being there.  :chugbeer: :thumbs:

Well, three pages really isn't much of a long thread at all. If you really want to poke the monster in the eye with a stick, make a joke about Harleys or start a 'car tires on motorcycles' thread.  :yikes:  :-)  And if you are feeling particularly edgy, ask if KiPass is a good system or not.... although in recent times, even that most contentious of issues has calmed down quite a bit. But here is one I've been meaning to give a whirl:

'Why, when I was a kid and we walked to school in snowstorms without any fobs at all.....'

I was wondering when a C10/C14 owner would start posting..  Thanks.  Although, as most threads go, it morphed from ZGGTR vs COG to C10 vs C14 owners.  As one of the older forum members who has owned both bikes, I can see both sides of this.  I'm glad for my 5 year stint with an '02, but even more glad to have experienced a C14.

Make sure you want to go there but if you insist, I can address that too.

Nothing to do with a C-10 or C-14 Jim, just more personal stabs. No problem though, the onlookers can draw their own conclusion and I am confident they will pick the right one....

What I don't get is how the c-14 guys so completely fail to understand the mindset of a c10 enthusiast. Let me put it this way... what car enthusiast wouldn't want a gen 1 camaro, mustang, firefird, etc... By todays standards they actually are rattly pieces of junk. They handle lousy, brake lousy, get lousy mileage, etc. But dammit they're just so damn cool! 60's on ss cragars puffing out side pipes! No technology, just a raw metallic vehicle. What's not to love! That's what it's like to have a c-10. It's not a c-14. You know it, I know it, we all know it. So what. Can you fix your bike on the side of the road with a paperclip? Do you c-14 guys know every square inch (we don't need no stinking milimeters) of your bike because your are the only mechanic your bike has had for years?  Is your bike uniquely yours, or is just like all the others kawasaki built?

  What is the worst that I've read here is the c-14 guys who have done some hotrodding and code-cracking on the c-14 having an elitist attitude toward the c-10 guys. Honestly, y'all need to check yourselves. Hotrodding is hotrodding. Old or new, and enthusiasts are enthusiasts. To dis the c-10 guys - and virtually every thing I read about the frugality side is wrong - is to give the green light to others to minimize your efforts to improve your bike, because your bike isn't the same as theirs.

   I have experienced riders who are so elevated by the marque they ride they cannot find it within themselves to wave, or even acknowledge a bike that's not the brand they ride, regardless of how fine a  machine it is. folks who have pre conceived notions about the rider, based on the bike he's riding. Y'all are sounding like you're "those" people. It's sad. JMO, Steve

OK, no problem, we can do it that way too.

Take a look at this thread folks, especially this post:
http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php/topic,50817.msg359094.html#msg359094

I think it profoundly shows the mindset and maturity level of all involved. It is called a 'dogpile' and is one of the poorer aspects of human nature.

While over there, take a look around at some of the poster's posts, mine included. Please, draw your own conclusions.

This thread will probably now get locked but no matter: it will also most likely stay visible for any / all to see, which I think is a good thing. Review, reflect and make your own decisions.
