I'm the odd man out here. I am a Viet Nam vet, so thanks for picking up the torch!
Never did the sport bikes, motocrosser in the 70's instead. Did the cruiser thing mostly since. Got tired of the noise, and short trips between eats, the formation riding was kinda cool tho! Now what was the subject here, oh yeah.
The C14 was on my list along with the GT to test drive, my dealer just sold both, so nothing to ride but an RT. Ended up getting a used GT for just a few thousand over the C14.
C14 is touted as being faster than the GT, but at the kind of speed this beast runs, that must be best out 3 thing I think. C14 gets like 37mpg, my GT gets 43 inbetween severe wrist twists
I don't know if the GT will hit 159 like a lot of people say, but I know it will cruise like on a rail around 120 -130. If we could get a GT lane put in on some interstates, well!
I can cruise down the hiway 2up with my wife, the ESA set on 1 helmet + luggage, dampening set to normal, what is that up ahead twisties, push button to firm on dampening, rock and roll. Just too cool in my book.
