Sounds like the Trophy pulls your sport touring mancard. ( no offense Nicole  :) )

Oh well.  Never road it like a racer wannabe anyway.  Would have bought the explorer it it wasn'too big for me, or the super tenere if I could have got past the looks.  Still trying to get my wife to ride pillion on the trophy.

Since you are wanting the Concours to be more sporty, what aren't you buying the zx14 seat I have for sale.  It will complete that sport ride you are looking for.

There you have it!  He hates your bike and he knows that you made a bad choice. Silly you, why would anyone get ride of a C14 and buy a non sport touring bike. Lol.

He's only looking for the sport bike look and stigma. He doesn't ride his.

That's correct. I thought that my name in my signature would have been a great clue.

Good to know, Nicole. My eyes failed to pick up on the fine print.  :)

Yep silly me.  Guess I will have to sell my leaned over Moto Guzzi cafe, and my jeep trail mountain climbing dual sport now to.  ;)

Yay I need a cafe guzzi!

 Like the 700's they are making.  What better way to have a blast ripping the heck out of a bike and still have a chance at keeping your license!   ;)

OK now that you have had the bike for awhile, can you give us more details.

How much did it cost?
How much did you get for your "stock" Connie?

Have you made any changes to the new bike?
What are the "best features" of the new bike?
How is the Gas mileage compared to the Connie?  Power?

Got any pictures of the dash area showing all the bells and whistles?

Did you ever get your trunk?  Heated grips weren't standard, is that right?

And finally is there anything you DON'T like about it or wish it had?
