The G-5 vs C-5
« on: April 27, 2009, 12:16:02 am »
I really like what I read about the new UCE and the G-5 vs the C-5. My question if anyone knows the answer is.."Is the G-5 an interim production bike with a limited production run until sufficient C-5's are available for the American market? I would hate to buy a bike that in a couple years is no longer produced as happens with so many other manufacturers.

That appears to be the fate of us AVL owners. That being said, they work well and I expect the parts to be available for many years. I would think the same for the G5.

Beans.  I never thought of that...
I like the AVL and don't even want a UCE.
