Any idea when they will be here? I'm ready to buy today.

No idea yet, you can bet though that Vince will have some of the first ones.

Vince is a bit to far away from me, but I'll look forward to his review of it.

It is a particularily beautiful shade of Red and White, it may be the way I go as well.

But my '08 AVL Classic is soooo good. Wonder what that red and white paint would cost? And then have someone strip it and slop it on.  ::)

I'm leaning toward a G5 Deluxe in Black. With tan solo seat, shorty muffler, and barend mirrors. Wowser

But dont think the only dealer in New Mexico willl be certified to sell them. Too bad, looks like I will have to ship one in.

Due to back surgerys I have to have a heel toe shifter (or right side shift) I have looked everywhere, i can think of and have never seen a picture of the left side of the new bike ,so I could determine if i could build a heel /toe shifter. I can't send pics but i can see them if someone would be so kind as to post a good closeup of the left side ,showing the foot peg and shifter. I had a 2001 last year was able to ride it with the right side shift kit ,traded it for a street legal dirt bike . I hope to be able to get one of the new ones.  thank you all

Hey, you're describing the bike I'm thinking about!

I put that C5 picture as my desktop and after looking at it for awhile decided I really don't like that rear fender overhang.  It just doesn't look right to me.  I guess the G5 is more to my liking.

I am thinking they look better in their natural habitat, on the road...  But it is distracting...

I  think the gap between the rear fender and the tire would close up quite a bit when the bike is off the center stand.

To me it kinda looks like they used 18" wheels in 19" fenders front and back.
Looked better with a black background.

Thanks for the pictures the red one one the white background comes so large (4 times bigger than my screen) I can't see the whole bike without scrolling around (and i don't know how to change itI don't know much about "puters" I,m old don't you see) ,but i can see the shifter and it would not be very hard to build a heel/toe shifter. My left foot falls due to one of my back surgery's, i can push down with my toe and my heel but i can't pull my toe up ,makes me walk funny also.   Thanks again all.   Ernie
