Didn't know what I was missing
« on: July 17, 2018, 02:17:33 pm »
While on my Victory Magnum following a few C14's up the winding 191 Devil's Highway in Eastern AZ I knew there was more. I had to see for myself why the group ride turned into a front group of Kawi's and the Vic's taking up the rear. I soon found out it was the 416 twisties that separated us. What a bike!! 4 days later I was signing up to have one by the side of my Victory in the garage.

Looking forward to reading about your ideas, suggestion and mods.

Now you sir are transitioning the correct direction.

As opposed to an un-named sword wielding mod around here.

FINALLY!!!! Someone that has the same bikes I have! You don't by chance have an M109R in your garage also do you?

Just be careful hitting the twists on the Magnum after riding the Connie for a while. You will find yourself coming in too hot for the Magnum to make the curve. Then you will be slowing down way too much when you get back on the Concours.

Oh... Almost forgot...

Welcome aboard! Congrats on the new Connie!
