I agree about removing the pillion. Kinda intrudes on the aesthetic.

Looking thru several books that show WW II military motorcycles seems to show that some of them did have a pillion seat but most only had a rack or nothing at all behind the riders seat.

A lot of the pictures show two riders on the motorcycles but it's impossible to tell if the pillion rider was sitting on a seat or on the rack (ouch).

I have a deposit on brown PEGASUS. The platform has been out for years and is proven.

The Twin 650cc is just to new of motor for RE for me to trust. Besides I believe it will soon be a 750cc twin very soon.  So I’ll wait for it with a hope most, if not all the bugs will be worked out.

on yesterday's pick up of the bike I asked this dealer about next month's delivery on the interceptor
he said he spoke to the importers last Friday and the release is now due for november -not august. so you could say I wont be getting that bike next month...lol
I also asked if the Pegasus was popular and he said he had taken deposit for 6 others.
appears to be a 50/50 choice in the colours.
I will check it over today and see if I can find anything improved since that gun metal grey in jan

for the past couple of days ive been under pressure deciding if to buy another gun metal grey c5...LOL my time ran out today to decide on the purchase as the price was pretty good. well good enough to compared to what I was normally paying
so prior to the decision I shot off an email to the dealer which I have had the interceptor on order for several months.
he soon replied and now thinks it could be here in say a month. another dealer has orders for roughly 20 units so if I pull out it could be a while before I go to the front of the line again.
first batch will be limited so no colour guarantees.
not a huge amount of $$$ split the C5 and the interceptor so heres the new plan
I know there are lots of orders for the interceptor. in fact far  more than the gt. I will continue on with the interceptor plan and just keep on riding the redditch.
the chrome version may or may not be in the batch. either way I get first pick of the colours which isn't many considering there will only be two bike of each ..interceptor and gt
now for some reason  ;Dif i'm not happy with the 650 or something like that it should be pretty easy to off load it to some-one else who will appreciate more than me at a great price...lol

The 650 twins are due to hit the States in early 2019. No definitive date yet. But I have been promised by my local dealer the first ride and review of these creatures as soon as they arrive.

Hey Bill - if it doesn't work out for you - ship it down to Perth ;D am thinking of moving on the Esprit (too much rego) but I reckon it could sit alongside my Cream & Tan C5 and matching colour scheme Trike I am close (well closer) to finishing, just paint and a little trimming  ;)
