My new G5!
« on: June 08, 2011, 03:01:59 AM »
After lurking here for a while I finally made it official and bought myself a purdy black G5 and lovin' it!  I think my girlfriend may be a little jealous.  I live in Santa Cruz California if anybody wants to rally the bay area.  -John

Congrats, it's a beauty, welcome to the forum.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Nice one congrats. I'm up in Marin, there's a few others on the board around the Bay. Perhaps a meetup is in order

Welcome aboard jartist and congrats on your Bullet.

+1 to 1 Thump's suggestion. 

The Washington Bullet Owners get to gethers are the highlight of the year for some of us.

It would be nice to see something similar happen in CA.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I have Sundays off in June. If Berryessa is too far for a Santa Cruz rider just breaking it in, we could meet @ Alice's then ride around the hills.

Berryessa and back from Santa Cruz should cover the break in in a day ;D

Welcome Jartist !
              I live in Redwood City. I ride a G5 Deluxe. I think Alice's would be a great place to meet up. Get use to drawing a crowd !

The SFO dealer should organize something.

I haven't thought about Alice's for a long time.
I made it a point to visit every time I rode up to 'Frisco.

Thanks all!  I'm down for making the pilgrimage to Alice's.  I'll probably be heading there Friday morning to get my free tee-shirt for bringing my new bike.  That's the rumor anyway.

Baryessa camping weekend would be cool too.  I got my bike with a little over 400 miles on it and I'm close enough now to breaking it in that a longer trip would not be out of the question as soon as I get my luggage carrier and seats sorted.  My weekends are pretty booked up but I'll get something started as soon as I figure out a window of time.
