I'm proud for you, it was a fun 5000 wasn't it.
As you have noticed, the bike gets better with mileage. I must say that I do take extra care of it and I enjoy that too ! And the bike responds !
Yes congratulations Singhg5, it's reports like yours that give us lower mileage riders confidence in out chosen machines.Cheers
Congrats Ji!Hears wishing you another 5000 trouble free miles.
I could not agree more with you, Singhg5!Give them the extra care and they'll give you back the extra miles.The bikes seem to mature around 3K. They run smoother, faster and the fun factor just keeps increasing.CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
Terrific!I wish you many more pleasant miles!
Br. singhg5, Now that fussing and sorting is no longer required, what do you UCE guys do with all the extra time you have on your hands ?
Congratulations! Beautiful bike!
Zooming in at the pictures I noticed there is a wire hanging loose (just below the saddle)?Very nice back rest. Where did you get it? Does anyone know if this one also fits an iron Electra5S?
I had bought this back rest from CMW here in US. I have close up pictures of the back rest in the forum and you can see the details and compare to the seat and frame of Electra5S. Here is the link with detailed pictures or call CMW. http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php/topic,4215.msg47354.html#msg47354
Checked CMW's webshop. They have a few but not the same as yours.
Just wanted to revive an old thread since I just hit 5000 on my C5 on the way to work today. Go me! Go me!

Is that measured more in maint hours than actual miles? I say that and yet I still want an Iron Barrel with no e-start. Y'know, just to tinker with on the side, maybe make it a Fireball cafe bike. Sometimes it's probably better that my poskets aren't as deep as my imagination.Scott
..... I'd be ........ LENO!
Bikes are like kids, you always worry if you'll have enough money for all of them, but you always seem to manage. Go into hock.......Hide the cash from the wife? You know, what ever it takes
My wife told me to buy the bike, now I'm in hock. How do I get out?
Scotty , you have mad skillz, work on them on the side, quadruple your pleasure !We seem to be both lucky in the wife department. Mine was happy to, when I got my first one, that is until I got t-boned , with her on the back at the tender age of 15. Nice pipe burn on her leg, which she likes to remind me of from time to time .Countless years later she tolerates the addiction, there is certainly worse ones
All my side time these days goes to my 1 year old. And I was mostly kidding. While I have some debt that this economy is not helping me get rid of a) it's mostly from things other than motos and b) while I hate it, I'd rather have a little debt and a little motorcycle than none of either.My wife hasn't been on the RE yet. She took a couple of rides on the Monster but that was all in the 3 years I owned it. The pillion on that bike isn't very inviting. I'm hoping the RE fares better but I'm sure there will be a request for a back rest forthcoming. Oh, and I think she wants a ladies jacket too, tired of wearing stuff that doesn't fit her curves. I guess that means more debt but hey, these are good problems to have Scott
You married a 15 year old?? My wife doesn't like to ride on anything smaller than an ElectraGlide. I can save money by NOT buying that pillion seat.Dan
Looks like a classic case of "Get 'em young and train 'em" ......
Atta boy! Hahahaha!! TOO funny, GHG!
There is nothing but loonacy without laughter Gotta get through this cold bleak winter somehow?
