One 700 mile pick up trip to that shit state. Two solid days of wrenching in the garage and she's about ready to be unveiled....

Fyi..Noone has guessed correctly yet. But I have never been more satisfied in a bike ever. She's perfect.

Ordered a set of new tires. I’m going to give Dunlop’s new Roadsmart 2s a try. $160 for both. This cheapskate couldn’t say no.

Okay big the big reaveal in the next post. But first I wanted to say you all know pretty well with one huge exception. The two bikes on my radar are the new Wing and the Indian Challenger. If me and the Mrs. 2up more often the Wing would be the clear winner. But ass you all know she has her own ride and is riding more and more now that she has that Scout. She loves that damn thing. If the Connie had to be replaced with a different bike the wing would edge out the Inidan. If the Connie was staying in the stable the Inidan would be the winner to complement the Connie. The wing and Connie would be too close to the same machine's to have both in my personal opinion. So the where some of you may have faltered in your thoughts when it comes to what I had going down is my love of the Connie. I STILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT FUCKING BIKE!  That might even be a bit of a understatement. Been all over the country with her and so many experiences and so much more I still want to do on her. So with what I said above, did I go with the Inidan Challenger or did I go down another road?..............

Indian challenger makes no sense when you consider the trunkless wing.

Meet Candy! She's perfect! With the exception that I was never a fan of the Nutron Silver she has always been perfect. There isn't any other bikes out there that I would trade her for at this time. A very rare opportunity to do a complete color swap came up with the color that has always caught my eye(Candy Diamond Red )I jumped on it. And it was a bargin! Sorry if y'all thought I got a new ride but if you go back to all my post not once did I say I was buying a new bike. Just said I was ready for a big change. Then I just trolled all y'alls imaginations. :lol:...here are the pic of the completed job I'll cover the transformation in another post..Can't wait to see her out in the sun where the pearl in the paint will shine....20200519_172457.thumb.jpg.b05b076ee77a7a573b3fc1f9616e215f.jpg

My ultimate 2 up tourer would be the BMW K1600 GTL.  For 1 up touring I already have my ideal bike.

We 2up some but not touring. Maybe 200 miles is her limit on the back. And that's only if her bike isn't available to ride. So a dedicated 2up bike for us isn't nessesary.

So that guy on the COG FB group was selling these a couple months ago. I inquired about them but he already had a buyer. Fast forward 2 months he messaged me and ask if I was still interested the other guy backed out. I was buy not at the price he was asking. He was pretty desperate  to sell so he agreed to $550 and he would meet me half way from Joplin, Missouri.

These were off a bike that had only 3000 miles on it and had been wrapped up and in storage for 7 years. When he bought his bike the color wasn't loud enough for him so he bought another set and had them painted Kawi Green then he did the swap. Now he's moving and needed to clear out some storage space. received_1156924887997156.thumb.jpeg.12c89d8a6f01f876e3a39a089b0b1b25.jpeg

This set was complete with every color piece on the bike. Including the tank, bag lids, mirrors and all the trim. 

Took my time doing the swap stripped her down nekid and cleaned everything on the frame and underneath. Each piece got new wellnuts and Teflon washers and 3 coats of wax before installing. Did a little tidying of things under the fairings and some maintenance while she was apart too.
