it'a arrived
« on: November 10, 2010, 06:09:29 PM »
At last my shiny new C5 has arrived  resplendent in black ,obviously the fastest colour,but seriously only had a short time to run it as am off to work night shift but a couple of quick observations  after a 20m run,seem's so light an flickable  compared to my Strom which makes me wonder the point of large capacity 'bikes,can;t comment on performance as way too new obviously ,a bit of trouble selecting neutral at stand still which hopefully will ease up with use,well comfy riding postion ,eager engine  and a great note even with stock silencer,seem;s to turn with just a thought so really manouverable and so light to paddle around in out of my garage,good finnish although not the greatest but acceptable so to sum it up so far a neat little package which leads me to believe this is going to be one fun ride ,all in all very well pleased with purchase and cant wait to put some mileage on itDon

Don:

Great choice - black C5 is awesome.  It has put a smile on your face, I can tell that  ;D.  Now you will have this grin on your face - get used to it.  Wish you thousands of happy miles thumping on the Bullet.

I had the choice to take the military, or wait a whole 'nother month for the black one.  I should have waited. 

Yer gonna love it, mate.

You guys have obviously never ridden a Royal Maroon C5, which is as we all know is the color of speed! :D

Silly boys. Chrome is your colour for speed. The more you polish it the faster she goes.   ;)
