They are about 150 miles from me, so my first ride on the C5 will be a nice one.

Through some real pretty country, too.
'On this world beneath the moon,
When Mercury is in the ascendant,
The isle of Scotland will produce a leader,
Who will cause the English discomfort.'

Yeah, I'll take HWY 72 down to Salem then hit 19 on to the Arkansas line, last time I went through there the traffic was lite and the roads were pretty nice, I hope they still are.

Rusty - welcome from another Brit, I guess your local dealer must be Bruce, a very helpful & knoweldgable dealer if it is!
I've been away for a bit & was wondering if they had the blue C5 in, I'll wait till he gets the red in & compare together - I've only seen the black one up to now.
If not I'll be at the 29th Classic bike show in Stafford in a couple of weeks time - I think RE will have a stand there!
Cheers & keep us posted on the C5 progress
Cheers
Nick

Yes it is Bruce and he's been very patient with me. I know dealers need to accomodate potential customers but there aren't many who'd gladly let you out on anything you wanted to ride.

I spoke to him last Saturday and apparently he'll have a red bike at the end of the month, not this week :( He does have the blue and black ones in stock.

Yes, please, Br. Rusty, do post some pictures of the red and green (blue) bikes and, if at all possible, under natural light... thanks!   :)
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Br. James, that's a really puuuurty C5!!!  And, you took the picture under natural light, which is the only way to tell what a color looks like out in the real world.
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!
