    Just a small word of warning, I did manage to crack the rack on mine just using the 50 ltr box, weight is more of a problem than volume. Although our rough Aussie roads could be partly responsible as well.

    Yes, you will. ;)

    If you can bear the extra expense for the large box, go for it.

    Roadventure, Now you mention it, I recall seeing your post on a different thread. Very probably why I looked in the box for a manufacturers mark.
    Thanks for keeping me honest.
    Any feedback from following riders/drivers about the visibility or brightness of the brake light ?

    Others have installed some really nice aftermarket LED light bars to the luggage rack under the box. I am very happy with the SHAD light though. It's pretty bright, plus, it looks like it belongs there. You can wire it as a running light OR a brake light. I have mine set up to operate as a brake light. I think I posted some pictures in my post about installing it if you can find it using the search here.

    Guess I should add my bike to your list. It's a 2014 California 1400 Touring, purchased new in October 2015 from RideNow Euro in Chandler, AZ. VIN is ZGULVC00XEM112317. Black and completely stock except for lower wind deflectors and glossy red valve covers. I'll probably add the 65 L top box at some point. Mark Fechtel

    I would like to be added to the list. I bought my Eldorado on 6-25-2016 Me & Christian.jpg at LaMoto in Arlington, VA. I drove out with my son-in-law, and rode it back to Pittsburgh. About 3 weeks later, due to a paperwork situation, I had to ride back to LaMoto to have a document notarized. It was about a 10 hour round-trip. The bike runs great, and is very comfortable. The VIN is ZGULVC022GM200086. It was a demo model, and had 1750 miles on it when I took possession. The picture is of me and grandson #2, before going out for a ride.

    Well it's pretty lonely without someone to share the mechanics of this bike, as I'm the only one riding the California Touring SE.

    I'm sure you will always find someone to chat to on this forum Shawn, wether it's technical help or just general chat. Great bunch of guys.

    Don't feel alone. Here in North Carolina, I have yet to come across another California 1400 Custom & I have had it 2+ years. The only other California in the area is an 1400 Eldorado and he lives 50 miles away. I veiw the situation as one would having say a Ferrari, it being a hand built bike. Very exclusive don't you know. At any rate, this forum is an excellent source of infomation about the bike.

    Just got my 14 California Custom. Shipped from LA to South Florida with a stop off to Todd at Guzzitech fueling Kit including ECU re-flash, Power Commander V & AutoTune 300, service and few other things done. First impressions, blown away by the power and response. Time for a road trip.
    Thanks Todd.
