2008 Kawasaki Concours™ 14 ABS
Beware of the Junk Touring Bag Latches and Kawasaki's Customer Service!By (I am an Owner) on Nov 10, 2009
I bought my new 2008 C14 in April 2009. When I had 400 miles on it the right Bag fell off and skidded down the road. About a week later I got a recall card from Kawasaki saying the latches were defective. Imagine that. I had the latches replaced on the recall but I felt that Kawasaki should replace ... the Bag. After 4 months waiting, I got a call from a smart ass Kawasaki Rep telling me that I must not have had the bag latched right and that Kawasaki would not replace the bag. End of story. I don't care how good this bike is, it's my last Kawasaki.

I bought this bike in August of 08.
This bike is absolutly awesome in every way.
Fast & smooth as silk.
I have installed a host of after market acc. The best 1 is the Audiovox c-100 cruise control.
It helps me stay @ close to the legal speed limit.
I came ... off of touring bikes & this bike is easily the best I've ever owned & I've owned many.

I bought my connie 14, because of knee surgery. I was wanting to ride while I rehab'ed my knee replacement. It's a blast! Very sporty yet comfortable on long trips. I love my Ducati but, this bike screams, too.

I purchased my Concours 14 in July of 2007 and I was one of the first ones in my area of So. Calif. to own one.I am very pleased with the bike and have never regretted it.The performance is exhilarating and the comfort is top notch.I've added on a few accessories-like most other bikers-a Kaw. taller ... windscreen, Corbin modular seats, Heli-bar risers and last but not least, a 2-Bros C/F muffler.The stock exhaust was too big and I like the sound of the new muffler a lot better.There is some heat that hits your feet & ankles during the summer, but it's not that bad and in winter it's a plus.Nice job Kawasaki.
