The concours got great reviews everywhere I looked. If I were in the market for a sport tourer it would be that or a used BMW for the same money.

Last year when we made a trip to sturgis, up in Wyoming on the wide open roads, we were cruising at 130 mph, with sprints to 150.

The only issue is though, I now have received 2 speeding tickets on this bike. Both in excess of 90mph :cop: It is sooooo easy.

That's a great looking bike Joel, good choice. :bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

Keep us updated on how the lowering goes too. I really like those but my legs are too short to be comfortable on it. I've not checked on what it takes to lower one.

:bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: I almost pulled the trigger last year on a trade for my 9 but I just couldn't do it... he wanted to trade for a Victory Hammer :dontknow: I told him to compare the Hammer and 9 on looks and reviews and when he called me back 2 days later saying the 9 is wayyyyy better... I chickened out. Had he traded me on day 1 I would have a Connie right now... I'm still happy!! :p

Today i lower the C1400 2.75 with full adjustable links just on the rear, the bikes handles just like stock. I'm not flat footed on the road but at least i feel in control, i like to lower the front but that will make the bike heavier when leanig in the curves..

Before

After


The only way you can tell is by looking at the rear swing arm and the rear axle.... after lowering the bike you can't see the end of the swingarm or the axle..
