C5s arrive on the west coast!
« on: July 02, 2009, 01:28:59 AM »
Hi All,

My C5 has just arrived at my dealer (Ural NW).  They are going to deliver it to me either Thursday or Friday of this week!  I can't wait!  BTW Ben of Ural NW has been great.  He's kept me up to date on progress and even emailed the pics I just posted in members rides.

I've really enjoyed your posts r80rt.  I'm really happy it's going so well for you.  If I get half the fun you do from this bike then i'll be very happy!

just got word from my dealer that I will get my c5 tomorrow late morning,,,,,,

She's lovely!   I've ridden my C5 for a couple of hours now and all the reports i've heard are correct.  The gears shift smoothly, she starts first time and she turns heads!

This is my first large single so the large thump of  the engine is is quite exciting.  But the engine is so smooth and easy to find your next gear.  It's easy to shift back to neutral too.

My journeys are fun again!  From now on I shall take the long route home.

I've posted a couple of pics.
