    The Concourse is a fine motor with great handling!
    If my hips and knees were ergo happy with it, I'd likely own one! :thumbsup:
    You have a terrific ride planned!
    Are you reaching Washington or shooting a hypotenuse toward Alaska?

    I loved my Concours even though it was the older, first generation with the "Briefcase" saddlebags...it was a terrific engine but like you I found the riding position too "Sport" for my hips. The Valkyrie I bought down there to replace is much more comfortable. Am not sure where I will be entering Canada to get on the ALCAN...I know my buddy wants to see the redwoods in N Calif. and also wants to take the Cassiar highway....all I know is we **** well better get past Whitehorse before the snow flys!!! I dont mind riding in the cold but snow is where i draw the line! I am hoping to ride the Rocket to the states in 2019 for RAA to finally meet some other Rocket Riders...Doug

    Tell me about your Valkyrie. Mine is a ‘99 standard two-tone yellow/ivory which just turned 20 years old (built 5/98) and I’ve owned it since new. I’ve ridden it in 26 states so far and coast to coast.

    I was thinking of selling it but my Wife wouldn’t let me. She rides a VTX1300S and wants a new 2018 GoldWing but they’re going for $25-28k new.
