That's great! I'm glad you you got through all the terrible paperwork problems.
Be sure to give us your riding impression of that fine bike.
I'm glad you are liking the bike so well, I can't wait for my C5 to get here

I was tossing between C5 and E5 (which is available in Europe) - Lo and behold ended up with G5. The dealer thinks it will be here in June, I hope so!

When I rode with my boots on, it was hard to get the toe under the lever. I had to twist my foot - heel out and toe in to lift the lever. Even then lifting was not easy. I am not a big guy nor have large feet. When I switched to sneakers, shifting was no problem.
Second - I do not like the acid battery in G5. I want to replace it with dry and sealed battery as soon as I can. CMW told me they do not have an equivalent one that would fit on G5 - due to terminal locations.
Third - the owner's manual is pretty useless. Definitely need a service manual with clear pictures, repair instructions, and specifications of parts. Since RE is pretty much a DIY project due to small number of qualified dealers in the country. I want to buy a service manual as soon as it comes out. Not ready yet as per CMW.
Fourth - the wiring seems pretty loose and cluttered with chances of short circuit and inconsistent responses. We do not know the reliability of its electronic components.
