Harley guy got a conny
« on: August 25, 2015, 01:53:33 pm »
2010 abs with 19,000 miles. Man she is fast. Hard to get use to 10500 red line, I can't my mind around going past 5000 rpms. But I will work my way into it.

Have a great week all.

Welcome to forum, Harley guy got a conny!

I just joined too, and I'm glad to have company.  I came from a Harley Road King Classic.  The constant evolution of buying expensive parts for the road king wore me out...ahem and my finances.  I still have a soft spot and probably always will have for Harleys.  Theses Concours are awesome machines for the open road!  Anyway...welcome and happy trails!

Well, at least you didn't call the Connie "cute" like the Goldwing rider who just joined.  ;D

I didn't have any problem with the 10.5k redline but I am still having a bit of trouble with topping out second gear at 100mph.

Have fun!!!!

When I hit the rev limiter I saw 90.  How are you getting to 100?

I have done it a few times. The first time I was dragging a guy on BMW HP and I was so amazed by how fast it got to redline that I checked the speedo without even thinking. Others times I have seen it under more "sensible" conditions.

Don't know why mine is different? Maybe because I ride mostly at 7,500 to 10,000 feet?
