Dude, it's 'youz' with a 'z'.  I live on the west coast now but I know Jersey.  If you don't spell it that way no one outside the tri-state area will get the proper pronunciation ;)

And in the 'Burgh (Pittsburgh), it's always "Yinz" or (seldom) "You-uns".  Youz we woudln't unnerstand nohow.   ;D

Be neat to see a comparison of a nice duded up C-5 and G-5.  Go to it! :D

As in "YINZ GUYZ" ?  or "You-uns guyz" ? Would the "Guyz'"  be dropped? "Youz" is pretty versitile in our area. It can also be used to refer to farm animals. In the rare occasion we get to venture into the country, you may here " Yo, kidz look out the winda, I tink I seez some youz!" :D

Bang on on the "Yinz Guyz"!  Local Scooter club's name's "The Scootin' Yinzers."  The "You-uns Guys" invariably get elided to the much more ubiquitous "Yinz"  -- we iz lazy: "Yinz" is easier to say than "You-uns" -- one less sibbulul ... or somepin' like that! ;D

Man thats crazy!  But I like it! Like a combination of north and south. What would Yinz call , a long rolled samwich, with Italian lunch meats on it?

As soon as Justin realized he could get another Deluxe in stock quickly he agreed to give the one he had to 3rdgear.  I just saw them prepping it and heard them start it up.  It looks good and sounds good.  3rdgear is coming by to pick it up soon.  

All the chrome on that bike helps offset the hot dog boxes, I like it better than the regular G5.  It's a really nice looking machine.  Interestingly, the Deluxe gets the older style, larger knee pads compared to the smaller ones on the C5.

Yes, I am happy to report that I did indeed pick up my baby today.  Got in a 25 mile ride, mostly surface street but what a kick in the pants.  I can not describe the experience in words but can say that it strikes a cord that with me that takes me back to why I got into motorcycles in the first place. Freedom on two wheels.

Did noticed a few oil leaks when I returned from my ride, will try posting pics.

Welcome to the brotherhood!  Now start tightening bolts ;)

These bikes seem to need a little 'finish work' when you first get them.  No worries, it will be all set soon enough.  Enjoy!

Oh, and that chrome tank looks totally badass!

Scott: Apparently I just missed you by few minutes.  Were you wearing a yellow hat?  If so, I may have seen you leaving.

Glad to see you got it sorted out.  Not all "Dealers" will be dealers in the long run.  Good shops will outsell bad shops and the reputation factor will kick in.  We just need to send everyone who is buying, or considering the RE to this forum so they can get the straight dope ahead of time. 

Very nice Bike, Congrats!

The Battleship and Destroyer calls it a "Battleship Sandwich" -- it's 3 feet long and filled to the gills with salami, ham, cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato slices and Italian salad dressing.  The "Destroyer" is only a foot long. Rick Seback, the Pittsburgh Video Historian has immortalized the place and the sandwiches in one of his 'Burgh videos on PBS.  But some at other foodie places call 'em Subs and some call 'em Hoagies.  .... Like, "Yinz wanna sub?"  "Yinz want some hoagies?" ;D

But the REAL other sandwich around here is the Primanti's sandwich--Whatever kind of meat etc. you want piled on a large square bun specially baked, with shredded lettuce, tomato slices, and a pile (yes a pile) of french fries on all that with the other piece of the square bun on top.  Stands 4-5" tall.  You can ask 'em to leave off the fries at Primanti Brothers, but they won't.  Signature Sandwich. Primanti's Pastrami Sandwich is to die for... or rather to ride yer bullet 25 miles for.  ;D
