It's Time To Stop Lurking

Hello from southern Indiana. I traded my VTX 1800 for a Kawasaki Concours C14. Now I think I am ready for a my first BMW.

I've been enjoying the forum and it was time to join. Thanks already. It seems to be a great forum.

Welcome! If you're on the fence in buying one of these machines, you've come to the right place to have a lot of help in pushing you off the fence! Trust me, you'll land on your feet.

Welcome, you will like this forum. I too came from a 2010 Concours 14. We could never get comfortable on it for more than 250-300 miles. Purchased my 2015 GTL in Nov 2015. Love it but we did just purchase a Russel Day Long seat to help with longer rides and comfort. The C14 is a great bike especially for the price. It is a little quicker, lighter and pretty reliable. We also had a GL1800 and sold both bikes to get our K1600 GTL. Absolutely no regrets. We love it. I wish I had a dealer a little closer, my closest is 100 miles. Good luck !
