It's a good, reliable ride
I have had no mechanical problems with the bike.
It has been a good, problem free bike. I changed the tires at 12,800, and changed the battery in the transponder after 2 years. Most riding has been interstate 88 to 150 miles round trip.
I have made a couple of long trips out of state. Usual running is between 3800 and 4000 RPM.
The only extra added was a big box.
I always use 93 octane. Averages 48 to 50 plus MPG.
The ability to raise and lower the windshield in transit is helpful. Not having self-canceling turn signals isn't.
I'm short legged, so even lowering the bike I'm on my toes. The Concours is a very good commuter bike with ample storage, and plenty of power. It's comfortable to ride, and handles well.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
