Never thought this day would come

When the time comes, it comes.  If it weren't for some "obligations" I
have, I'd be riding a new Connie 14, but apparently that is going to have
to wait a couple of years.  I'll hang on the the GPZ though, they can stuff
me in the gas tank and bury me in it, LOL!!  But in honesty, having ridden
both the Connie 14 and the FJR, I know what I'm missing and they are a nice
improvement over the GPZ.  Whatever you do, have no regrets, you will enjoy
the ride no matter what.
