 I've said a few times that I likely wouldn't buy a new RE but I have to admit, the C5 has made me rethink that.
 
 I hope to get to ride one before long as it seems to be a very competant creation with keeping the old character while moving forward.

While Scotch is a good subject and I can attest to Scooter Bobs love of the subject, It is time to actually throw you a bone.
The first container of C-5's is in port. It is being held up for a Dept. of Agriculture inspection. They are most likely looking at  the documentation that says the wooden crates have been properly fumigated. We don't see this as a big deal or delay.............although this did happen to us with a container of sidecars last year and that took 6 months to straighten out. I am very confidant that the paperwork is correct and we will see them released soon. Then a trip by truck from the port to a railcar. After that delivery in Minneapolis/. St. Paul and then a truck to CMW. Then Tim and Michail unload the containers. (Normally after this it takes about two days before they will speak civilly to us.) then we start shipping, We report you decide.

Are those bikes off the dock yet? I can send scotch to customs inspectors too!

Myself I'm partial to the  Black Bushmills. But I do like a good scotch, and Balvenie and Glenmorangie are two of my favorites. Must say I can't take Laphroaig, though... tastes like burned peat...

All snippets of information are eagerly anticipated, and greatly appreciated! I've waited 53 years for this bike, a few more days of torture will make it all the better when it arrives.
