I tried the universal Vista and almost got it to work, but at times it would not hold the spreed.  Could have been a poor install on my part as I lost patience.  The Brakeaway dealer does not list it for the Concours 14 and will tell you that it will not work, however with a proper custom bracket that is listed in the threads here or the other C14 forum it is possible.

I didn't use the universal Vista Cruise. I didn't like the fat bar going across the switches. I did a custom install making my own tiny bracket. Totally adjustable and works great for about $20.

I actually used the NEP as I recall and it was not for me.  The Vista looks like it would have been a better option for a custom install.

I have used NEP for years on many bikes and I swear with a few adjustments they work perfectly and look like they belong on the bike. Then again- i never keep it engaged for more than a couple of minutes at a time - but i have never needed anymore.. for $20 i prefer it over anything else including electronic which i did not like on a goldwing.

I had an 07 FJR and really liked it.  Both bikes have pros and cons, just depends on which you favor and how much money/work it takes to fix the cons. 

Your bike looks fantastic, beautiful color.  I may buy a new bike next year and the FJR and new Versys 1000 is on the short list depending on what Kawasaki does.  If we go to a 1 bike family it may be a Wing, who knows.

If the 2015 would of had cruise control would of bought one. The FJR is a nice bike as well. But after sitting on a new Triumph Trophy I might be hooked. Very comfortable seating position as well as cruise and sat radio and USB port.
More money as well. Guess we cant have it all :(

FINALLY...someone else who sat on the Trophy! TJ, I test rode a 2014 and fell in love. I want to trade my Concours in for it but have to wait till I get some things paid off...maybe next year. It's a great bike, handles "lighter" than the Connie, has cruise, radio, satellite...the only things missing on that bike are GPS (phone will do though) and me ;)!

I just returned from a 5000 mile road trip and met a guy at the "Top of the World" store on Beartooth Pass who has a 2014 Trophy with a ton of miles on it already and he absolutely LOVES IT!
