Hello from the Twin Cities
« on: April 16, 2014, 11:44:45 am »
Thought I would drop a note and say hello to everyone since I've been lurking around for a week.

I've been riding for many years on mostly HDs and Triumphs, but I decided this time I would listen to a couple friends and check out the Concours 14.  Sure glad I did...  Just picked up my new to me 2012 c14 a week ago and could not be happier with the decision. 

Now it's time to farkle it out!

Look forward to hanging out on the site.

P.S.  Does anyone have an opinion on good Kawasaki service in Minneapolis/St Paul area?

Hi.  I'm in SE MN, so no suggestion on dealer up there.  I used Plainview Powersports this week for some warranty work.  Great guys, work done in less than a day. 

What color did you buy?

The fastest of course - Black    ;)

I'm down in SE Mn area once in a while to see my daughter in Kasson.  If I cannot find a dealer with a good reputation I may just run down there and give them a try.

Nice little town Mantorville.  Good brewery there across from Hubble house I believe.

Welcome to the group.  The MN-WI guys are great and get together several times a year either to ride or wrench.  I have not had much experience with dealers, other than warranty or recalls, but both Leo's South and Cities Edge have been good.  I have also used Simply Street Bikes for routine service while I wait.  Most of the events are posted on the "official site" at http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/Calendar.cfm?clubID=1328

Hope to meet you soon.

I've heard good things about Cities Edge, but never used them personally.  Follow Back in the Saddles link and I hope to see you at a local get together!!
