Took Steves advise and went with a ceebaileys windshield, also orderd a rear rack that's metal and not plastic. Went with a coocase top box with built in brake lights. I'm having more fun with this bike then I've had in awhile.

Well christmas sucked! opened my top case that showed up and the inside lip is broken which screws the seal up and the lid does not close all the way on one side. also the lid suports do not work as the lid will not stay open on it's own. I will be making a phone call in the morning and I will not pay shipping back.

Nope box was 100% mint no damage. it was put in the box this way. makes me think twice before getting the same brand. problem is I had one on my Vstrom and had no issues what so ever.

Bently,
Although this really sucks, I am sure that you will get it straightened out.
What I really wanted to say as I was reading this thread is how happy I am for you that you have a new toy that excites you.
Life is short, glad that you are enjoying it. I feel the same way about my 14R.
Very Best,
Phil

Oh ya riding season is not fully here for me yet anyway and I will get it sorted out! I'm not losing any sleep over it. the 14r is a great bike and excitied me in raw power and short trips but for long trips and lots of miles no matter how much you spend on one it's still not as comfy as a concours or near the wind protection. s

Bently,
You are so correct about the differences between the two 14's.
I kind of went the other way, I sold my '06 GL1800 and bought the 14R. I even had money left over.
I too am having a blast.
Best,
Phil

Well trunk thing is fixed, twisted throttle had no issues sending me a return shipping label and getting me another trunk on the way. I decided to go with the GIVI instead of the coocase I org. bought. it was 60.00 more but hope the quality is beter with the GIVI.
