Took the decision to part with my C5, traded against a new Transalp. Had the bike a few days over a year, completed 9500 miles, and rode it almost every day.
Wow, you must be a demanding owner if a rusty puddle in the toolbox sends you off to the Honda shop - I presume you had other problems over the year of ownership.
Ray: Sorry to hear that you have parted with your C5. You took good care of it and it showed in the pictures. I will certainly miss your contributions to the Forum.I understand that REs have their limits and other bikes offer features that RE does not. Best of luck with your new Honda Transalp and let us know how is it doing from time to time. Regards, SinghG5.
Yeah, the rusty puddle was the final straw as Singh kindly said, I did like to keep it tidy, but there was always something to doRay
