I was looking at the C14, but now I am leaning more towards the FJR1300. Little better mileage, less engine heat on rider, little more sporty handling.

Only clear plus to the Connie is the rear shaft looks to be better controlled.

Think I'll just put the stock rear sprocket back on the Bandit and get a cruise control....

i have an fz1 and i love it, i can ride 4-500 miles a day on it with no issues. it handles very closely to a true sport bike but doesn't have much for saddle bags but i always strap a duffel bag to the back seat and never have any problems with it. i've owned it since nov. 06 and put 33k miles on it so far.




btw, it's for sale due to the wifey wanting a hardley
