Just be on the look out for any changes in the warning stickers and / or in the owners manual on the 2019’s. Either way, changes made or no changes made will speak volumes to the outcome of this case.

There are lot of people who make a living with bs lawsuits.  That's my guess about this topic.
Nothing worse than having your balls go missing.

I certainly hope you are right about that. There being a 2019 edition that is.  :-\

Yeah, I am thinking that is highly improbable at this point.  But, hey, stranger things have happened.

"Settled" with an NDA doesn't mean he won or got his way. Just means the case was 'resolved' outside of court.

doh...

so, can we put this one to bed?



I know it's like the "jelly of the month club, Clark",

but can we stick this one with a fork, and call it "done"?  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :popcorn: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :grouphug: :1DeadBanana :1DeadBanana

The OP answered my PM.

OK, I was wrong, it's called a non disclosure agreement, but yes it was settled and, no he can't talk about it.

I am kind of surprised how he was treated here though, just because he didn't like the brakes and got a lawyer he was called a troll and other stuff.
Over the years I've heard so many complaints about this bike, " the seat sucks, the bars hurt my shoulders (I still don't understand that one, but whatever), it's buzzy, it's jerky, it's got no cruise control, it doesn't have a key that works like the key on all my old bikes did, the brakes aren't linked right," etc. etc. etc. and yet this guy is the one that gets all the flack?

I like my C14, a lot (no it isn't love), but if someone else doesn't and instead of just complaining about it on forums, decides to go get a lawyer and take on a giant large
corporation..then my hat is off to them.

I think some of us that have been here awhile (not me of course) have a tendency to react firmly on something that's not quite the ordinary posting especially when it seems that they are essentially saying our baby is ugly on their first post.  I would hope that in the future we react less firmly and see how something works out before we accuse said poster of trolling, etc.   


With that being said, my right shoulder blade started to hurt me after several hundred miles of riding even with the Heli Horizons...part of the reason I moved to another bike that was more ergonomically friendly to my elderly body.

A nice set of ape hangers on your Connie would have been a cheaper route.  :rotflmao:

I’m not sure what your riding style is like, but I would think it would have taken some getting used to making the switch from a Concours to an Indian. Less lean angle, slower thru the curves, shorter shifts or bouncing off the rev limiter, etc. I know it takes me a few mins to get used to the bike I’m currently on each time I ride a different one.

Entry speed for curves is what gets me. After riding the Concours for a while and then getting on the Magnum, I come into curves a little too hot the first time or two. Then when I get on the Concours again, I find myself slowing down to much for the first couple of curves. The more I switch back and forth, the better I’m getting at adjusting between the two. Lean angle is the same way. I’m getting better at adjusting with that too. Still haven’t found the Concours’ peg feelers while riding, but my toe sliders on my boots touched down for the first time on Wednesday when I was out riding my favorite local roads.
