new to us 2014 MG 1400 Cal
« on: September 06, 2021, 04:25:36 PM »
first off I am 60 have owned plenty of bikes thru the years, but I first learned to ride on a MG that my father had in 1974. I remember he took great pride in the attention he got when took rides thru the hills from SF Cal. when stopped people always asked about different question.
I dont remember seeing one again until about 2010 when I was shopping for a new motorhome and the show room had one parked inside... WOW I was shocked, having owned Kawasaki, Honda, Harley, BMW and now riding two Can Am Spyders, with a old 2008 Vulcan 900 still giving me joy on two wheels.
Wife and I  was traveling ( two spyders with one towing a trailer) across country with my brother (bmw 1600 gt) and his wife.  While in Rapid City we ran into a a small group of MG riders in 2019.
I was in the need for something different to ride and while looking at different models of all brands bikes ONE had me hooked. BMW R19, test drive and wow that was BIG. fun but Big,. He had a used MG Eldo in lot and rode that as well. well damn I thought my father will be looking down or (up) upon me.
Well tomorrow I will make another 120 mile drive to pick up a new to us 2014 MG Cal if all goes well.

ok made the ride home today with about 125 miles under belt, very happy with ride. Some heat was building on my knee, just about 92 deg today. Haven't owned a air cooled bike in years, at 70 mph it was calm and relaxing. Got the cruise control working after learning the steps,
WOW
