Hi all, new to the group and just picked up my first Concours 14, had my eye on this bike for sometime and finally pulled the trigger. It's a new 2012 model that I just for a use price, sure stocked about that. So seeing how it only has a 100 miles on it, here my laundry list of modifications I will be doing in the next month.
Cee Baileys Mini Euro Sport Windscreen
Advance Sport Touring 2 inch Pullback Handlebar Risers A.S.T.
Advance Sport Touring Ram Ball & Phone Mount
K & N Air Filter
Tank Protection
Muzzys Stainless Full Exhaust W/Dual Oval Carbon Fiber Mufflers
Modified Center Stand
Power Commander V
Capping Smog House
Throttlemeister Throttle Lock
DDM Tuning Dual HID Headlights & LED Parking Lights
This is all I have coming to install, if there is anything else that I should consider please let me know. I have had many different types of bikes, but this is the one I be waiting for.
If you would like to know how installation when on anything what I think, just let me know.
I will post some pictures when I get it all done.

you didn't mention the seat. CHANGE IT!!
I had an 09 Concours 14, lots of fun but after 30 years on Gld Wings I couldn't get comfortable on the Connie for more than 200 at a time so it had to go. I tried several different seats, changed the windshield, put bar risers and Murphs wedges on it and still wasn't satisfied.
There are a some great forums for the Concours, check them out. here is one I liked

that's a pretty Connie. looks like same color as my 07 FJR. was gonna get one of those, but wife didn't like em, so I had to settle for a 14R. dang women. always putting a wrench in riding plans.

FJR?? Someone mention FJR? Those '07s were (and still are) the bestest color ever made!!

Mine is an '07. Bought new in Jan '08. Turned 78,000 miles 2 weekends ago. The avatar pic is sunset in Key West.
