New C14 owner from Portland OR
« on: March 02, 2014, 04:44:45 pm »
Just picked up my 2013 C14 this last Friday afternoon. Went in to test drive the Ninja 1000 and Concours back to back thinking I was 80-90 % sure I'd be driving home on the ninja. Needless to say the comfort and features of the Concours won me over, I would have had to replace a ton of parts on the 1000 and it still wouldn't have been close.

I left my Yamaha Warrior to pick up the next morning only to have a huge rainstorm make its way in much sooner than expected, without a doubt the most miserable motorcycle ride (downpour 70 Miles no rain gear) in my 20 years on 2 wheels.

I've been doing a TON of searching and reading on here the last 2 days and there I some great info here, and it looks like there are more than a few pacific northwesters here as well. Look forward to some group rides and whatnot.

I've got some questions regarding PCV vs. Guhl flash with a full system I'll post at some point in the proper forum.

Craig in Portland
13 Concours all stock (not for long)
07 Midnight Warrior far from stock

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

That would be a fair assessment of my NFL ties. Hopefully my fellow NW C14 riders can overlook this, I'm a Bay Area transplant when I was 12....born and bred.
