Purchased a 2014 ZG14 last week, waiting for delivery 06/16/14. Been on a Bandit 1250 since 07 ( he turned 74500 km yesterday).
Took a test drive on a 2012 14 Concours middle of last week and decided it's time for a change.
Purchased a few farkles  to make it even more my own. All these purchases happened from what I learned off of this site.
I'll send pics of the new therapist once he arrives. Then with all the bells and whistles attached.

Thanks.
Took the cheque to the dealers today, found out the bike arrived today in the crate and won't be built until next week. :(    06/18 or 19/14 for delivery now.
The bandit has been good to me but it just doesn't feel the same after riding the C14.
Feels harsh and windy. Still corners nice though.

Same thing happened to my C10 after I rode the C14 for a few days.  It felt wrong all of a sudden and it didn't before I bought the bike.

Hi again from up north.
Slight delay in picking up the new 14. Seems I broke a bone in my foot this morning. Can't support my own body weight so I think I'll wait a few days to pick her up. Don't think I'll be able to support the weight of the C-14.  Don't want to take the chance until I get my canyon cages on.
Guess that's kind of a good thing because most of the parts I ordered haven't showed up either.
Rico highway pegs took only 5 days form Burlington WI to Calgary Ab.

Mortons toe.
Nice pedicure.
It'll buff out.

Your CC's must be like Steve's FOB. They just have to be in the general vicinity to protect the bike.

I heard he keeps a picture of the cages taped inside a saddle bag.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

They are so powerful that they protect the bike from hundreds of miles away.  All hail Canyon Cages  :hail:
