    congrats! If I could have a bike for long touring rides that would be the one.

  2. dafobra says:

    I wanted to ride the 14.. the line was out of control, thats why I went for the Connie.. also rode the ZX10R.. sick bike.. a buddy is looking to get a 14R next actually.. thanks for the comment

  3. Bill Kerr says:

    I went to that Kawi event here in Dallas to ride the Connie. I have an ’04 among others, been thinking of stepping up. It was nice but then they talked me into trying the ZX14r. Oh my F-ing god. Same engine and reasonable ergos in the parking lot. On the street it turned into a psycho on meth. I giggled like a kid. Give it a spin if you get the chance.

    Picked mine up last weekend. Have a RSV also (Yamaha), cause the wife won’t ride a sport bike. But that’s ok, the girl friend digs them. lol!

  5. Arthur alves rodriguez says:

    Here it costs R$74.990

  6. carewser says:

    The guy that sold me my Burgman 650 also had a Vstrom 650. I thought it was odd for a guy to sell his Suzuki 650 so he could ride his Suzuki 650. I’ve never ridden a Vstrom but I briefly rode a Concours 1000 years ago and it was really nice. I can just imagine how nice it is now. Other people who have ridden sportbikes get on the Burgman and say it’s like riding a barcalounger although I don’t have the executive model which has even more bells and whistles than mine.

  7. dafobra says:

    Earlier last year I attended a Suzuki test ride (not as nicely done as this kawi one) and I rode the Vstrom 1000.. hated it.. after I got off that I regretted not taking the Burgman 650 instead.. I sat on it and it was very comfortable.. and nicely equipped.. oh well.. next time..

  8. carewser says:

    I ride the poor man’s concours-a burgman 650 but i’d love to have a conny. The only advantage I have is dry feet,

  9. Mortech1233 says:

    I test rode this bike twice during a demo event this summer …….the new C14 would make a nice companion to my C10 ….. ejoyed the vid .

  10. dafobra says:

    third? I just want a second! lol

  11. dafobra says:

    Good info on both.. thanks!

  12. MrArsC14 says:

    The buffeting is easily fixed with adjusting the windshield. A bit higher and you’re golden.

  13. KLRPilot15 says:

    Dang you Dafobra… Now I want a 3rd Bike…. !!!!

  14. JDSFLA says:

    You mentioned wind buffeting in your video. To solve this I suggest installing a Cee Bailey Euro CUt windscreen. It made my ’08 C14 much better.

  15. dafobra says:

    cool vid! subbed ya

  16. dafobra says:

    Im a hair shy of 6 foot

  17. Pilot9r says:

    I live on Long Island also and own a red 2009 concours1400. Check out video I have of my friend trying to hang with me in his all wheel drive BMW through the turns.

  18. George Nassar says:

    I am 5’8″ also and have a Concours 14. You can’t stand flat footed. The problem is not so much the height, but it’s the width. Your legs have to straddle a fairly wide bike and your feet are right where the footpegs are, so you have to straddle them too.Nevertheless, I love riding this bike. It’s the best I’ve ever owned. Standing still, you have to be on your toes and keep the bike straight up.

  19. dewwed1965 says:

    Thanks for the vid, question for you, how tall are you? In trying to decide which to go with the ST 1300 or the Concours. I only stand 5’8″

    Thanks.

  20. dafobra says:

    yep.. try to make it down to it next year if they do it again.. I will be there for sure

  21. dafobra says:

    unfortunately the Kawi guys set the pace and the route.. Ocean is nice but the straight monotonous light bumps can almost put me to sleep.. The Connie 14 is one of the nicest all around bikes out there IMO if you can swing the cash

  22. Joe V. says:

    Should’ve went down to the Ocean PKWY!
    

  23. Joe V. says:

    South bound Sagtikos PKWY… You’re in my hood, Amigo!

  24. dafobra says:

    ROFL!  Great comment!

  25. 879doogie says:

    if you have your AFLAC premium up to date, then i wouldn’t worry about that duck messing up the Connie test ride….lol
