If I could have kept my 2009 C14 when I traded it in Oct for the 2011 S3 I would have. The C14 was comfortable on long rides, handled great in the twisties and had 150 rwhp and 97 lbft torque, problem was it weighed 700 pounds and had a ton of plastic to take off when I needed to work on it. To me that would be the best of two worlds, the Speedie to take on trips to the mountains, and the C14 for the cross continental touring. I have made my S3 into an S3ST now :-)
Man, you were haulin ass the other day when I passed you.
