I was riding my Concours 14. I love it!! It is stupid fast, and extremely comfortable for moderate distances at ridiculous speed. Its too easy to cruise at 100mph for an hour or more at a time, while taking my gear with me. It will blast a curvy back road much better than most can believe. I have seen videos of it topping out at 170 mph. And this is Kawasaki's TOURING bike!! I dynoed it last year at 142 hp at the tire. I have Ohlins forks and shock, EBC rotors and pads, Area 51 pipe, Power commander 5, BMC air filter, tinted windshield, carbon fender, heated grips, GPS, loud horns, Metzeler tires (incredible handling change vs Michelin) and electric jacket hook up. It really defines "being stupid". Love it!!
