I'm a former owner,  It is a sad club and I also belong to it.  I have owed 2 1000's and 3 1400's.   I am old geezer and now riding goldwing.  My hips just could not take the riding of the 1400 any longer.  Do I miss it.  "YES"  But I still ride.  But at a slightly slower pace.

Really?  :rotflmao:   I got a bunch of crap when I sold the C14 for the Indian Roadmaster.  That's pretty much an old man's bike.  Well, not so old.  I daresay the age bracket of these old guy bike types is very similar to ours

Jim the older you become the younger those around you appear ;D

Well, the replacement is a 2003 Suzuki SV650S, a bit different from a Goldwing. I went to see it yesterday, had a test ride (on a gravel road, no less), everything seemed fine. The seller delivered it from Green Valley, ON to Ottawa, it's in the garage now, should be registered today. I admit to being a geezer, but not yet a sedate geezer.

Edit to add: And (!), it has a Ninja ZX14 shock to replace the stock one, so I can legitimately still call myself concoursowner on eBay. Oooeee.

Congrats!! 

I loved my SV, unfortunately I had a teenage volleyball injury with my knee that caused a negative impact with comfort on that bike.  My DL650 has been the answer.  Still have my '03 Connie. 

Happy miles with your new ride!!

Congratz on the SV. That's a bullet proof motor Mine (02) did about 50 track days and survived 4 or 5 crashes with only minor damage before I sold it.
