Been around here awhile
« on: March 14, 2017, 04:19:04 pm »
     I have been primarily lurking around here for a bit. I finally pulled the trigger on a 2015 candy lime green. (Green is best color). It is used with 1800 miles on it, the warranty is good through 5/18. I will get the extended warranty soon. I got the bike on Saturday and my wife and I went for a 150 mile ride on Sunday. I was unsure if she would enjoy it but she may be hooked as well.
    I live in the Portland Oregon area, any fellow Connie riders in the area that get together to ride or work on the bikes. I am fairly mechanically inclined but would live to have someone around who knows more than me.

Welcome to the Site, Homie. The bike is bulletproof, if you want to save your money.
I bought the warranty, but never used it. I never even took it in for the recalls.
In fact, when I take my bike back to the Dealer, I tell them to look away. Don't even look at it.

Jimmymac do you live in the northwest. The pine trees in the back ground make me think you might be nearby.

Pretty sure that pic is in Arkansas...
I'm over here in Kansas City, having to travel for the twisty stuff.
