We'll see whether it gets past the Somali pirates! The idea of my C5 being hot-rodded around Mogadishu by some 14-year-old with a machine gun just makes me upset, so forget I mentioned it . . .
I asked my dealer when my C5 might get here (I was told it was on the "next boat" because I waited too long to order) and was told that the boat died, and had to go back to port to be fixed, so there was a slight delay in shipment for what I assume is the next boatload (or one of the next boatloads). I get the impression that the boat is now fixed and headed this way. We'll see whether it gets past the Somali pirates!

Here I was worried about pirates. Just read a news flash that there was a magnitude 7.6 earthquake just occurred in the Indian Ocean east of Chennai, and that India is under a tsunami watch for the next few hours. Tiruvottiyur, which is the part of Chennai where Enfield is located, appears to be very near the coast north of the city center and was very badly hit in 2004 by a tsunami. My best to all the people there who make these wonderful bikes . . . and I sure hope my new C5 is already somewhere past Indonesia on its way here.
JoythumperI think 2 - 3 weeks delivery time should translate as 2 - 3 months in Royal Enfield time.In the UK I ordered my C5 in February and took delivery in May.Shortly followed by a four week recall to fix the gear box problem .All I can say its worth the wait - I don't know what the weathers like in your neck of the woods but over this side of the pond we are playing dodge the rain most days.REgardsKeith - Shiny side up and keep between the hedges
