Warbird, I'm getting the Dark red, it's a left over 2012 and the deal they made me I could not pass it up. they are giving me more for my 14 then what they are selling for on the used market and there selling the concours to me for 100.00 above dealer cost. I wanted a concours the last 3 bikes I've bought and at the last second I always changed my mind and went for the 14 or Busa. but with the dead racing scene around here and the surgeries I've had on my upper body the last year and a half I need something that's not bent over anymore. I hope this section of this site picks up over the coming months it would be nice to have some concours knowledge here. I know we have Steve!

Guys just got back home, bike was 100 miles away in the town where my inlaws live so picked up the Connie and then spent a few hours with the inlaws before heading home, no I did not ride it, it's sitting in the garage and shows 0 miles still. we have a Ice storm coming for tonight and tomorrow so looks like no riding anytime soon. Yes the 14r is gone!

Let's go, where you at?

Are you a member of concours owners group? If not doesn't matter, they are super active and anyone can attend the rides and meets. FYI - its addicting

Very nice bike! Every time I am at the dealership, I look at a C14. But then I think of how I can make it faster, what I can mod, what kind of top speed I can get, and think to myself, "Man, you're just not ready!". :lol:

:thumbs: Congrats Bentley, that is an awesome bike. Call fuelmotousa.com, they did a package with an Area P full system and a PC-V for the Concours 14. Good for about 30hp if I remember correctly. Enjoy the Connie

Actually not rushing into an exhaust on this bike. it's kinda nice having it quite. might just send the ecu in for a few tricks and open the flies quicker and it will be fast enought for what i want it for.

This is the only bike I haven't messed with the exhaust/mapping. I want max distance between stops when sport-touring, and quiet on those 1100 miles day :mrgreen:

Steve after my ride today I think I'm leaving this bike alone as well. runs plently strong enough for this type of bike and like the quite ride myself.
