Hey guys.
« on: January 21, 2013, 02:47:47 PM »
Hey guys, I thought I'd stick my head back in and see if I got rocks thrown at me. Things are finally looking up, and I may start sniffing around for a C5 Military to replace my long gone and lamented red beauty.
Cheers, Dan

The return!  Welcome back!  Glad to hear you're feeling better.  Are you back working or still on early retirement?  I think I'm going to get on o' them big ok' 1925 Harley seats for my bike.  Might be good for you, I hear they are super comfy.  I'll keep you informed.  Heck, maybe I'll loan it to you if you get another C5 and want to try it.

Oh, and someone mentioned a red C5 with low miles for sale here recently.

Hi,
Yup. I have been working on some higher power stuff for the Iron Barrel Fireball builds.
AND, we're working on a UCE kit now too!
A lot of hurdles to overcome, but we are slowly progressing toward the goal.

Hey Scotty, I'm not going to be working again, but I can walk a lot better. I'm still a long way from riding on the street, but I think I'll get there. That big seat sounds like just the ticket for comfort, I'll keep my eyes open for your review of it. If I go for a C5 again, as much as I loved the red, this time it'll be a military, no more bending over to polish chrome for me.  ;D

Thanks for the welcome, I'm not sure if I'll get back on a street bike or not, but the disire is still there pretty strong. I thought I could stay away, but it's in the blood ;D

The word is fitting a better seat and aftermarket Hagon shocks to the C5 do wonders for the back comfort.

That said, i would still not go off the pavement with back issues.

On the pavement I'd be an obstacle, weird as it sounds, all my riding is off pavement now. I have a very light trail bike with good suspension that takes fair care of me on dirt roads. I'm ride slow and stop a lot, but I still get to get a short ride in on occasion. It's the only way I stay sane. ;) Laugh if you will, but this is my mount these days, at 25-30 mph on dirt roads it makes me grin with out killing me in the process.
