Made a test ride with the Bullet 500 de luxe
« on: August 05, 2009, 10:38:13 PM »
A few days ago I made a test ride (135 km  ;D) with the Bullet 500 de luxe from our local dealer. Very nice bike. Easy to ride and much better handling than my own Bullet. Needless to say It was great fun!  8)

Nice bike, sounds like a good long test ride too!
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Love the look of the deluxe, especially with a nice solo seat installed

I think it is much better suited for long adventurous trips with lots of luggage (like an overland trip to India for example) compared to the C5.  :)

What I really didn't like was the odd Japanese windscreen.  :o
