Picking up my new C5 in 2hrs and 21 minutes
« on: August 12, 2009, 12:41:58 PM »
People,

I'm heading out to pick up my spanking new Maroon C5 in, well, it's in the subject line.

Ran out of people to tell so I'm posting.

That is all.

Carry on.

Had a had time with Progressive , they did  not know what a RE was and charged me for an antique bike.Allot of wasted phone time and money.

Gieco was fast and easy. I would recommend you give them a call.


I'm still tyring to wear out my AVL Classic for an excuse to purchase a G5....no dice. ;)

REpozer,

Insurance problem:  I called it a Royal Enfield C5.

It's a "Royal Enfield Bullet Classic C5".  Set straight through call to the underwriter.  My bad.  15 minute fix.

That did it....I'm insured and I'm paying like $20 less per year than for the 2004 Victory Vegas the C5 just replaced.

Life is good.

The bike is a blast.  Sounds like I'm being chased down the road by my lawn mower, but it is a blast to ride.  Double suspension in the rear is super cool on my destroyed spine.  I like it.

emskee,

Good for you.

Maybe my " William Shatner" style negotiation skills are not working for me . :D

  Congratulations ! you've made a great choice for a bike, show us pictures, get ready to answer a lot of questions at gas stops.

Congrats.
 I am happy for you and a little bit envious too.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Thanks all!

So...I'm feverishly hacking away at my break in miles when the sun sets and I notice that there is a flickering light coming out from under the instrument cowling onto the steering neck.  Come home and find two of the three bulbs going to the warning bezel are swinging free.  Which goes where?  I look at the wiring diagram in the owners manual and note that the print isn't really print and wire color marking is sparse.  So....gonna call dealer and/or visit dealer.  He has another C5 there which I can throw an eye on.  Bike stays home.  Dealer is 90 minutes from my house back road, break in friendly miles.  Dealer is 6 miles from where I work.  Rode the Ural in today. 

Gotta laugh.  Really.  Learned to laugh owning the Ural. 

Stay tuned.

Well I assume you'll try the easy stuff:
does one light up when you put on the hi-beam?
does one light up when you put on a turn signal?
does one light up when you put it in neutral?

I miss my 2000 Deco with the 750 that I installed and the old LL fork that I grafted over from a '98 Patrol!
