I bought this 2003 Concours for my first bike at the urging of several people. The bike was a little top heavy and challenging in low speed turns but I quickly overcame that.
I used it for commuting to/from work which was 110 miles round trip. It's a nice comfortable ride with adequate power on tap. I averaged 40 mpg. at 80 mph.
The only real problem I had was even with the fuel valve in reserve mode, the bike would occasionally die after riding 170 to 200 miles. I finally attributed this to fuel starvation after visiting several forums and eliminating all other causes.
I put a fuel pump in line with the carbs and tank and the problem went away.
Upgrades/Accessories: Fork brace, Garmin Streetpilot 2720, Bergman oil filter mount, electric fuel pump, voltmeter, highway pegs, fog lights, bug shields for forks and HID headlight.
