Welcome James - you seem to be the first on here to have ordered a C5. I viewed the C5 at my local dealer a couple of weeks ago - It does look good. I'd like to see the other colours but they have not been imported as yet. You can have any colour you want - as long as it's black  ;D
It will be great to have a few reports from you when you get you hands on one.
Who is your local dealer by the way?
Cheers
Nick

I bought the C5 from GV Bikes in Taunton, Somerset. I'm actually closer to Torre Motorcycles but they have none on order at the moment (but can order them for you). I got a call from GV and decided to pop by to "have a look"

What can I say my self control sucks, but I don't think I'll be disappointed, it's a stunning bike and peoples reactions to the UCE are pretty positive.

Once I get it to my place I'll take lots of pics, the ones on the official site don't do em justice.

I would not recommend a daily 20 mile freeway commute for any bike in this class. Use the ability when you need to, but avoid the super slab as much as possible. It would be the difference between a 25,000 mile and a 50,000 mile engine.

My commute is about 25 miles one way, with the majority on 4-lane (but not Interstate).
I drive it nightly in my 90 Silverado at 55 MPH, and never feel the need to get out of anyones way, So the UCE should serve my purpose.

When Mercury is in the ascendant,
The isle of Scotland will produce a leader,
Who will cause the English discomfort.'

Hey all,

The bike is in my possession! Unfortunately I've been really busy the past week, I'm going to try to get some nice shots taken and may also record a video of her running if the street is quiet enough to let the sound get picked up nicely.

She's a beauty!
