RT to a 2012 Concours C14
For mostly no other reasons than wanting a little more power for two up, and wanting something "different", I bought a 2012 C14.
It's a very different bike than my RT. Overall I would have to say it's a very nice bike, and comperable in many ways to the K13GT. In that respect, I like the lower RPM's at highway speed, but the trade off is there is less roll on power in top gear. However, there are remedies for that if I were interested in pulling the secondary flies, and possibly adding a Power Commander, which I am not.
The magazines raved about the handling of the C14 with the caveot that the steering was heavy. I would agree that the steering is heavy; however, thus far the handling does not impress me much. There may be some time needed to get used to conventional forks and the different feel. So far the added "feel" in the front end is a little unerving when cornering. Edge BMW. To be fair the suspension is set to factory settings, and the stock tires are probably an area that can be impproved.
The C14 will need some modifications to make it more long distance friendly, but I am looking forward to a different experience
