Hello from Boston
« on: December 28, 2015, 04:44:58 am »
Hello from Boston, Ma
I traded in a 1998 Harley Electra glide classic for this beast and never looked back, although I really can’t complain about the Harley; 92,000 miles and never left me stranded, it just never got the blood boiling. I’ve only been riding my black 2011 C14 for a few years but It just keeps getting better especially after installing a two brothers exhaust and a MRA vario touring windscreen.  Not sure if I’ll attempt other mods but I’m sure this site will motivate me. My other ride is a 2010 Triumph Rocket Roadster; another animal all together. Looking forward to meeting some good people on this forum.
Ride safe!

Welcome.  Those are two bikes that must be very frustrating to ride in Boston.   :o

Thanks ! Any recommendations on a decent local Kawi dealership for service ? I purchased mine from Performance out in shrewsbury and they great, just a little out of my way

The Triumph puts me through a workout in stop/go traffic but has power like a diesel, i've never owned a bike that i can just roll out the clutch without giving it throttle...it makes the C14 feel like a 400 pound sports bike, but who am i kidding
