Been lurking around for the last couple of weeks and desided I really needed to sign up and commit.

Purchased a red 2014 with 1,400 miles recently, stock except for a set of heli risers

One of those deals where you walk in to the dealer and they’ve marked it down (P.O. traded for a gold wing) then offer another grand off. But wait, it gets better.....it was snowing out......Knocked another  2k off! Then got them to give me top of the book for my trade!!

Heading out for a 9 day next month and looking forward to the Connie comfort!

You can’t beat that with an ugly stick!  Congrats!  Best sport touring bang for the buck out there.  Bought my ‘09 for $6k last year and I still can’t believe what a bargain it was. 
I just had my ECU flashed by Steve in sunny Florida.  Can’t wait until it gets here! 

I would recommend taking a day trip to make sure the stock seat works for you.  If not, there are a lot of options out there.  Have fun!

Welcome  :chugbeer: to the forum, Skiman!!!

Good choice on the best cruise missile around, but before you do any serious biking, do yourself and the bike a favor and toss the stock BStone 021 tires- they are the worst tires I have ever had in 45 years of riding, and dangerous with a beast of a bike like this one.
