Same here. I was smitten with the blue Custom variant.
I really wanted one of those blue ones. Never could find one. I had this 2014 gray custom. Nice ride.
Bought a 2016 eldo from florida dealer 2 mo's ago. Finally got it 3 wks ago. Took a 1300mi rt to eureka,ca from ventura. Love it. Been 15 yrs since my last MG. Only problem was rear shocks, can bottom out. Ordered new ones from todd egan. Had to get use to throwing my legs forward to the floorboards without clipping rear shifter! Learned quickly though. Good to be back. Maybe i'll restart the 'not a rally' rally.
I am severly smitten with the 1400, ok I said it and my addiction has been spoken for all to hear. Anywho, I would like to hear the good, bad and the ugly about this mount. Don’t need Luap’s hour story recounted though! So let me know likes, dislikes, model differences, year over year preferences, would you buy again etc.Thanks in advanceinditx
I have a 2014 custom with an upgraded Matris suspension front and rear, Touring bags ( they leak) and a sport screen. I get thirties commuting, high forties to over 50 on the freeway. Adequate power. It doesn’t like sitting in hot weather in traffic. I have nearly 26,000 miles on it.
I just recently purchased a 2018 California Touring with 6250 miles on it. Since I have had it I have put overa 1000 miles on it. It is heavy at parking lot speeds, but handles great at speeds higher than 25mph. The 1400 has plenty of power and low end torque and is very smooth on the highway. The seat is very comfortableand my girlfriend finds the passenger seat comfortable as well. The floating floorboard treads transmit no vibration to the feet, but they could be larger. I like to stretch my legs out further in front of me and run out of room.Many have mentioned that the 1400 runs hot and mine is no exception. On a 90° day it is uncomfortable as heat just rolls from the cylinder heads and gas tank. Mine seems to run about 40°- 50° hotter on the right cylinder than the left.The bike does a really good job of absorbing bumps and I haven't bottomed the shocks out, even riding two up. I weigh 220lbs. The bike looks beautiful, runs smooth, and handles great on the road. So far I haven't been disappointed with anything other than the heat issue.
My new 2018 Eldorado , man I love this bike . Did however make a few changes early on. First was to try my hand at making saddles , the stock passenger one was a bit of a joke ( looked good though ) , my better halfcan now ride for hours without pain . Next to go were the rear shocks .The most I can say for them was , therear wheel did move up and down , and we'll leave it at that . Floor boards were next , not really bad , but Ipreferred my feet further back , also removed the heel shifter , not a fan of them . Low speed was not the motors forte , a Booster plug improved that noticeably , but I thought it could be a bit better and went for a "Beetle" map , that was what it wanted all along . It's still not a motor to lug around withand try to short shift in spite of it's displacement . Loves to be wound out a bit and then shifts a treat . Not particularly fuel efficient , but I can get 300km out of a tank . The acceleration up through the mountainshere in B.C is a smile generating thrill , (and my wife locks her arms around me) , the faster it goes,the quickerit gets . 18,000km and the tires still look barely used . I added Koso Apollo heated grips , really nice when it's barely 10 degrees celcius , they were no small struggleto install over the throttle tube though . Did I say it was drop dead gorgeous ! Peter
That was the color of my first Cali 1400. I purchased it before I flew to California; registered 08 May 2013. I claimed the first purchase in the USA. Let me know if you were earlier.The silver paint job sucked. It was semi soft and tended to collect near the bottom of the tank. A Monday morning job in the factory. No warranty for this I was told.This photo was taken up Angeles Crest, immediately after I picked it up from the dealer.This is the same bike at Bluff in New Zealand. I was there for the Burt Munro Challenge.And this after the new paint job shortly afterwards. Modeled after the colors of a '70 Triumph Bonneville I once owned. Wished I still had it.

Beautiful GuzziKen15!How much heat does she put out in hot weather? On a scale of 1-10, 1 being minimal.inditx
