I have nothing but Good things to say, so far.
There is an AudioVox cruise system, but I am happy with the Throttle lock like the one on my VFR... So there is 13.99 spent for cruise.
I dropped 60.00 for a Cortek mini magnetic tank bag. It is on its way.
I will place all the electronic farkles in the tank bag. Since the Connie has an accessory jack I can hard wire the bag with power and just plug the bag into the jack.
No splicing the harness or adding circuitery.
So in the bag, I will have my GPS, Passport x8500 with the Legal Speeding blue tooth, XM Radio to my ChaterBox and ChatterBox charging wire.
This set up can quickly move my farkles from the Kawi to the VFR, by just unplugging from a cigarette lighter.
I will be replacing the seat with a Sargents dual heated... 800.00
Givi has gotten 132.00 for the tail rack so I can swap my Monokey trunk from the VFR to the Connie.
I haven't looked at heated grips, yet. But there is no way that they cost more than what I paid to get new BMW grips.
The wind protection is real good, but I am only 5'10 190lbs.
As for comparo, It may compare to the GT. Definately not the 1200RT. I often ride an '07 RT and I found it to be slugish. The LT is a better bike than the RT...IMHO.
The nearest BMW shop is two hours from here. I already travel that for the Ducati...Not doing it for two bikes just so I can have an overpriced german toy when there
is a decent Suzuki, Kawasaki, KTM, Aprilia shop ten minutes from home.
The ABS brakes on the Concours are fanominal!
Exceleration is - DAMN! - Of course, I have not gone past 5K, yet. Couple more days. 6K in OD is 120MPH with 6K left.
The foot pegs are very easy to touch down, but to do so the bike is extremely laid over.
The wife was chasing me today across the Cherohala, she mentioned that the luggage was very close to the ground at full lean.
With a 190 rear tire, my selection will be outstanding with all the liter sportbikes running that size.
We made one final trip on the LT Sunday to the casino in Cherokee. After riding it through traffic and parking lots... Any bike is better.
With the added Givi trunk, my storage is close to the same if not more, since I don't have a CD changer.
It was kind of sad leaving my LT a dealership, but in the long run I have a more functional bike.
Easier to maintain... Hell, I can see the oil filter and the filler hole.
The three year factory warranty. What a three year warranty?
There is only one main item that all of my bikes have except the Concours 14... Outside temp gauge.
I know, what are they thinking? They tell me my tire pressure but not the temperature.
I want to know how cold it is at 5000 feet in August.
I am working on a solution for that.
I got the Candy Red.
