I've been on the fence about buying a RE for sometime, but the introduction of the UCE has swayed me. I was a bit concerned about the upkeep as I don't have a good area (covered) to work on a bike, even though I'm fairly handy with tools and can follow directions.
My Social Security benefits start up in May and I will be putting a sizable portion away each month. The Turquoise two-tone is in my sights. It will be my retirement gift to myself.  ;D

I spent 2 years working on mine (a 2002 4-speed) without a garage, including removing the primary and digging into the gear box to replace the kickstart pawl (search my posts for the details if you like). It was sometimes a challenge, but ultimately very doable. No garage kept me from doing some of the mods that I would have liked, but it was never a problem in terms of basic maintenance and even some more elaborate repairs.

 With some care on your part and careful following of the break in period you should not need to do very much work on it if you don't choose to.

Thanks danny...I'll certainly keep that in mind. I wouldn't mind the pre-UCE if one's available at my time of purchase.

...
Bullet Classic G-5 with UCE engine  -    $5995
Bullet Classic G-5 Deluxe with UCE  -    $6095
Bullet Classic C-5 with UCE engine  -    $6395

.....

The G-5 will get here sometime in the spring. It will initially be available as a Classic with solid paint and pinstriped fenders in Black and V. Green. The G-5 Deluxe will be available in Black and Red. ....

Trying to locate a picture of a V. Green Bullet Classic G-5 with UCE engine.  I am assuming that the Chrome fendered G5 pictured is the G5 deluxe and the standard G5 will have painted fenders and Gas tank.

These prices are MSRP and do NOT include shipping, set-up, taxes, bailout surcharges etc.) - just kidding about the surcharges
Bullet Classic with Lean-Burn engine - $5349
Bullet Deluxe with Lean- Burn engine - $5449
Bullet Military with Lean-Burn engine -  $5545
Bullet Electra with Lean-Burn engine -  $5745

Bullet Classic G-5 with UCE engine  -    $5995
Bullet Classic G-5 Deluxe with UCE  -    $6095
Bullet Classic C-5 with UCE engine  -    $6395

From what I'm reading on the web, the shipping and set-up charges add another $800 or so to these prices, is that right?

Shipping and set-up charges are set by the dealers and generally reflect the real-world costs that they have. We can laugh about the "bailout surcharge" (which cracked me up), but we will all by paying for the rest of our lives, they just haven't figured out what to call it yet.

Brother Phil, I thank you for your endorsement of the proposed name!  And, I am not all that talented at all, Phil.  That BITCH was a no-brainer of a name; really!    :D

The way we are going to be paying is through inflation. When you sharply increase the money supply without a corrosponding increase in goods and services being produced, the currency is devalued. Add to that the depression of market activity caused by even more government involvement, and we should see a negative economic spiral for some time. The market will recover, but it will be in spite of government, not because of it. However, that will not prevent polititions from taking full credit for the recovery when it does happen.
