I put it down to road surface/me being a bit lardy and assumed that adjusting the rear shocks would help, didn't think much of it at the time.
Hey All!Sorry for the lack of posts, been hectic as always. I'm slowly going through the break-in, but have not had the time for a nice long ride. Currently she's at 150 miles. Hopefully the weather will be decent this weekend so I can clock many more on the C5.Thats interesting / worrying about the shake. The most I've had her up to is 45 as I've just been riding locally. Ride on the whole is getting better, but that could just be me getting more used to it.I've been hearing some friction at slower speeds or while coasting with the clutch in, so I'm going to try lube, wouldn't think it would be necessary with so few miles but if it's not that then I'll have to take her 60+ miles to the dealer. While at the BMAD bike show last weekend, Torre Motorcycles had a black C5 with the rear pillion pad, made me happy to just have nothing back there.Edit:Forgot to mention, the break light issue was solved with a trip to the petrol station! Even though I had a fair bit of petrol left I guess the placement of the sensor + hills caused
Rusty - yes, v interesting. I thought you had the E5 rather than C5 - was it the C5 you were talking about that had the wobble?

I’ve read a couple of reviews which have been very favourable so find it hard to believe that there would be major handling issues (TL1000S?), it did surprise me a bit though.My bike won’t be seeing those speeds for a while yet.
