Welcome Tom! I live in Dripping Springs and ride the hill country quite a bit. Maybe we'll cross paths one day.

Dripping Springs.....Oak Creek Cafe....I love that spot.
We eat there every time we go to Austin!
I bet our paths will cross.

Thanks for the welcome

Have had many a breakfast at Oak Creek Cafe. The only problem is that it is too close to me. I typically want to ride a bit to get to breakfast on the weekends.

Every time I ride my Connie I am finding things that the previous owner put on her.
She has a Corbin trunk, handlebar risers and set backs, front slider blocks and rear cages. All very nicely done.
I had a key on the key ring that didn't fit anything on the bike.....Until I did some reading here....I found two helmet locks tucked up by the tail light.

I'm a big guy but this bike is very comfortable.

Also (and don't ask me how to do it) one of the requirements before total acceptance are the mandatory pictures.

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.
    • C-14 farkles you almost cannot ride without.

Congrats on the new ride and welcome to the forum.

Recent statements regarding the loss of learning, knowledge and a venue in which to share that knowledge about this bike to the contrary, I believe you will find some useful information here both old as well as new. We even throw in the occasional joke, all at no extra charge.

The C-14 is a great bike and will eat miles with ease- ride the pants off of that thing.
