My wife's knees have been bothering her on the longer trips.   It's much better on this bike.  She likes the wider board for her feet and she remarked that she isn't getting knocked in the back by the top case anymore.  All in all, it's a big upgrade from 2 up on the C14.  The cruise control holds the speed very well, unlike the Voyager I had years ago.  The only downside I can see at the moment is less storage than I'm used to on the C14.  The side cases are much narrower, but the top case is larger than the Shad46 I have now.

I would guess its difficult carrying a sword in your assless chaps, painful even.

Hey don't knock it til you try it...

Also, I am somewhat disappointed that this thread is so mellow.  It's starting to pick up but no one is making fun of me.  Not sure what to think of that.  I may have to ban someone...  Blue14 and Brian are exempt for their feeble attempt at mocking me.. :rotflmao:   Possibly they are French?

Close, but no cigar.  However, you may have stumbled upon something quite by accident.  I do love all things Deco.  Always have.  Possibly I lived in those times from a previous life.

Hey ... shouldn't PC people be mad and try to forcing Indian to change its name?

If they did get mad and 'won'   ::) I think the name should be changed to Injun ... with corporate claiming it's just a funny way to spell engine.

If only you had purchased the ugly two tone mint green and cream one, then I would have been pushed too far and said something requiring sword action or banishment.  However since you purchased a more attractive blue monotone one, I wasn't pushed to the point of uncontrollable rudeness.  Maybe if you get some "Get Back whips" I could be inspired to do better? (pink ones would do it I should think.)

Better...  He dealer did talk about a bell and how it is supposed to protect the rider/passenger/bike but the protectee can't buy it for themselves.  Said he sells a lot of them.  Didn't mention whips.  Swords cut whips if one is fast enough.  I don't want anything dragging off the bike.

Congrats! Last year the Fredericksburg dealer had the demo truck there and I rode all the different models since I'm probably not far from getting some kind of old man touring bike next. I'm still going to keep the C-14 for 1 up riding though. I came in thinking the Roadmaster would be the one, but after riding them, I settled on the Chieftain. I think that's going to be the one when it's time.

Got a haircut hair cut today.  Asked me if I wanted the senior discount.  Absolutely, I said.  Saved 2 bucks.
