Meet Dannie Mullins: owner of the first C5 sold in the USA

In the News, Random Notes

Bright and early this morning we got a call from Bill (Slam) Dunkis the owner of Interstate Motorcycles in Rolla MO.  Somehow the trucking company got  his C5  to him overnight  from our warehouse. His customer for the bike Dannie Mullins called last night and asked if he could sleep in Bills parking lot so he could pick up his bike bright and early this morning. Sure enough, by the time Bill got to work, there was Dannie waiting.

In the words of Bill – “I handed it to it’s new owner and asked him to take it out for a 20 mile ride on our Missouri Ozark mountain two lane roads and tell us what he thought. He was glad to oblige.

When he came back, and after he extracted the massive smile from his face, the first words out of his mouth was “This may be the best handling motorcycle I’ve ever ridden ! Crisp handling in the corners and rock solid on the straights.”This coming unsolicited from a rider with 30+ years experience”.

Congratulations Dannie – we hope you love your new bike. His was the first warranty registration we received so I guess that makes him the first owner of a C5 in the USA.

Nice Article in the New York Times

James Parchman wrote a great article about the Royal Enfield company and our new products for the New York Times . Here is the online version of the article. James is a freelance writer/photographer who contacted us while he was in Pakistan doing another article. he went to the factory in Chennai and came back with this great article.  As someone who has taken a lot of photos around the factory over the years I am in awe of his photographic abilities as well. Guess this is what the phrase “trained professional” is all about.  James did a great job and we certainly appreciate it. We are told that he has an upcoming piece in Rider magazine about the C5 as well.
