New from Central Pennsylvania
« on: April 30, 2018, 01:59:16 am »
Bought a new 2017 Concours 14 a few weeks ago.

Traded in my trusty GS500F, which I liked and put many miles on but was becoming increasingly maintenance heavy in its old age.

Installed the Canyon Cages tonight as I've dropped a few bikes, over the years, always from something stupid like not putting a kickstand down. Didn't want the punishment this bike typically hands out for such silly mistakes, especially when on a long trip. Actually signed up as I needed some advice on the bolts of doom. Ended up using a propane torch and some heat shield material after every other suggestion I read failed for me, but that's a whole other saga.

They're on now, time to ride! After some sleep . . .

2017 Concours 14, 2008 Rebel 250, 2014 Street Triple, 2012 Voyager 1700, 2014 FLD Switchback, 2017 Guzzi V9
