Hi From San Antonio
« on: April 09, 2014, 03:48:23 pm »
Just drove home with my brand spanking new 2013 black concours 14 abs.. It had 1 mile on it. I'm such a novice riding this. Lots to learn.. Hope to maybe meet some of you in the future..

Congratulations! :chugbeer:  What an awesome location to have a bike like that.  A quick trip up Hwy 16 to Medina and you can make time with the 3 Sisters!

Congrats on the new bike! You say you are a novice is that just riding this bike or bikes in general. This sure would be a lot of motorcycle for a novice rider.

Thanks for all the replies and well wishes.   :)

Actually, i have been riding for 30 years. I have just never owned a sport tourer before. Very different from my Harley. So i guess i am experienced but def. not on this bike. Totally different bike and will taking some getting used to thats for sure. Plus i need upgrades, new grips, bigger windshield, also if avail. pegs so i can stretch my legs.. so much to research.. :-\  I will post some pics of the new bike. Working so much haven't had the time to go riding yet. This weekend for sure tho..  :)

It's a good way to explain it: "very different from my Harley."  I've had cruisers up to this point in my life, but am enjoying this one so much more than any other. Congrats on the new bike and good luck.

Congrats on the bike.

Absolutely love that rock and pole fence.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
