I'm not sure I'd throw my business to a site that can't get the years and gens right on the Concours.  It's sloppy.  If they can't get that right what else isn't right?  But that's just me...

I have to admit that it would scare the crap out of me too.  It is a critical thing to get wrong.  Let's see if they listen to my Email and at least fix it.

If they are correct and there is an 07 C14, I'm going to be really pissed.  I thought I was an early adopter.  I'd be doubly pissed if I owned a '10 and found out it was really a gen1 bike (and paid more... :rotflmao: )  believing all that Kwakery about improved heat management and such...

(comparison)

Here is a shot of the canyons from my bike at a SIMILAR crop.  Unfortunately, the bike is at a significantly different angle and on side stand, not center.  So you have to move it around some in your mind (I tried to overlay the two in GIMP, but they are just too different for it to work).  They would interfere with each other at full forward position.  Can't say about leg interference...

What I would really love is a set of Top Blocks,  but I just can't swing or justify the price

Im concerned that the CC will get in the way of my new touring pegs or my legs while using them, these appear to set higher and should be clear. Plus they are $100+ cheaper. I am not really looking for complete protection, just as a slow slide or drop type situation i want to be able to ride it home.

The CC's make a great place to mound pegs.

That may be so, but it's registered as a 2007 model, not a 2008!!

In the US it's considered an '08.  Outside the US, the laws must be different, eh?

I think it must be a time zone thing.
