just brought it home!

I have been looking for something to tour on for about a year. This morning I brought home a 2009 concours with only 14k miles. It's got a couple of after market items otherwise all stock. I rode it 80 miles home and it is one comfortable bike.
Just in time to put it away for winter.

Lou

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I hope to, It's most likely the one I will be riding to the rally next year.
My wife had planned several trips next year and although I could do them on the on one of the other bikes I'm getting to out of shape to do so, lol. I'm out for comfort at this stage of my life.

Great score, a beauty for sure. I just bought a 95 GPZ1100 Sport Tourer, the forefather of the Concours. Of course, I can ride year around here in south Texas, never any snow or ice and rain is rare, just great sunny days.

Thanks guys, I'm looking forward to next year's trips. This is really a great bike for what it was intended for, sport touring. I can't wait.
Jerry0012, you are going to love the 2012 model with all those features and refinements. And where you are you can ride all year long. Best of luck with yours.

Lou
