Had it a week now and love it!
« on: May 09, 2016, 12:49:47 pm »
My wife and I purchased a blue 2013 a week ago.  It has the risers, canyon cages, and aftermarket windscreen.  I purchased the luggage rack from Phil and installed the back rest to the top case for my wife.  We went on a ride this weekend and loved it!  We rode on my BMW 1100RT while we were dating over 10 years ago.  We sold the BMW and went without until now.  We are really looking forward to doing a lot more riding.  Right away I liked the C14 better than my BMW.

This forum has already provided a ton of information

Glad your loving it! I just purchased a 2009, am with you, awesome motorcycle. Had a Yamaha FJR 1300 a few years back; this C14 is just so much more fun! Enjoy the ride, be safe!

Welcome slolifepilot! I flew an Air Knocker 7AC for years. Cruise speed about 80mph. Is that the kind of slow life pilot you are talking about?

I've owned mine for over 6 years, and love it more all the time. It's so comfy and predictable. I just throw it around like a dirt bike, sliding it around like it's nothing. Such a blast to ride. 8)

Thanks everyone.  We have a business aviation operation with five aircraft.  Hopefully attached is a picture of my new ride with one of our King Airs.

Wrong colour maybe, but it still looks awesome...
