Hi from the U.K.
« on: April 03, 2018, 07:21:19 am »
Hi from the UK,

After test riding a Yamaha FJR 1300, BMW K1300 GT and a Honda ST1300. I've just put down a deposit on a 2007 Connie 14. It just ticked all the right box's for me, having a great riding position, superb engine and smooth gearbox. It also looks great.

Great forum you have here, with lots of useful information and advice.

Steve.

Welcome to the forum, Grizz.  Lot’s of knowledgeable and helpful people here. 

It’s a great motorcycle out of the box, but there’s a huge aftermarket for farkles to dial it in and make it perfect for you.  Have fun.

Question, you put a deposit down on a 2007 or a 2017?  I thought they started the 14 in ‘08.  (At least here, anyway). Post some pics when you get a chance. 
2009 GTR 1400 ABS, 48k miles, AMSOIL synthetic 10W-40 (since new), AMSOIL synthetic 75W-90 final drive (since new).

Pssst, if you're in the UK it's a GTR not a Connie :P

If it says "Concours" on the side it's an Import ;)
