Congratulations!  :o One of the lucky few to get the early shipment. My wife has to wait on the next boat for her teal! If we're doing ceegars, may as well do a little scotch.... and a little more scotch..... and just a little more scotch........

Yeah, I'm the guy that slept in the parking lot  ;D This bike is everything I hoped for and more, handling is superb and it all feels and looks like it should. I've put 65 miles on her today and can't stop grinning, I can't believe what a great job you guys did on this bike, that new motor is a damn fine piece of work! Thanks again for making a life long dream a reality. Is it true I got the first one? Cigars and whiskey are back ordered ;D

I also wanted everyone to know what a great guy Bill Dunkis at Interstate motorcycles is. I've bought new bikes from Triumph, Yamaha, BMW, Honda, Harley, and Ural and now Royal Enfield. I've never had a better experience at any other dealership, Bill knows his stuff and will go above and beyond to help.

He also puts on the Rally on the River every year. The US's first and oldest RE rally.
One not to miss.
We'll see you there in Sept. right?
Congrats on the new C5.
And yes, The bullets are some of the best handling bikes ever made. The alphabet bikes take it to a new level.

Chris is right, the MO Rally on the River is not to be missed. Great riding and a wonderful crowd. Also lots of entertainment from our hosts at the campground.

BTW - alphabet bikes, I like that
