Amazing you noticed !

Interesting story about that....

The picture shown was taken prior to buying the bike when I was shopping around. It is in the previous owners driveway. Look around in the background and it may give you an idea of the technical sophistication of the guy. He was not very mechanically adept... This played to my advantage when it came time to barter the price. He bought the thing and only rode it 500 mi before selling it to me. When I rode it home it became apparent why.......

It was the most ill handling, poor riding POS I've ever been on. Not at all like other Concs I'd ridden. Tire pressure completely OTL, the OEM tires (junk to begin with) were squared off worse than any I have ever seen. Rear shock had 0 psi. It was terrifying.

After a complete teardown, new Avons and the mods listed it is a completely different bike. Damn good thing, too.

Excessive use of the Concs front brake will put you on your face faster than on any other (top heavy) bike I've ever ridden.

Any absurdly large guys here ride one?

I know a guy who is thinking about picking one up as a mile-eater, but he is about 6-8 and over 250 lbs.

How did lowering the pegs affect clearance - did you drag them a lot?

Not mine. The '03 RED Connies were the fastest color. As any '03 Connie owner would know

Some Concours pics from this summer's Maine tag-o-rama. My Concours kicked some tag-o-rama ass.











Concours at the Mason-Dixon Monument, northwest of Salsbury, Maryland.

To quote field of dreams " build it and they will come" before a couple of weeks ago there wasn't even a thread for C-10 owners to post pictures of these great sport-touring machines . But I have a feeling that, in time, this thread will grow and show the great history of this pioneer in sport-touring motorcycles.

I'm not excessively tall. Maybe 5' 11" . I felt pretty folded-up with the standard pegs . I don't roll it in so hard to scrape the newly lowered pegs; I left that tendency behind 30 years ago. Will they drag if leaned hard enough ? I don't know. Probably.

Between the peg lowering and the extra height of the Russell seat ( maybe another 1") It is very comfortable now. The OEM seat was horrible for me.
