What a beautiful bike. We never got the Tribute Black C5 in the USA. Was it a special bike
just for the UK?

How did your two week tour go? Did you camp or stay at B&Bs?
Thanks. These were a limited edition, 1000 for India and 1000 for the rest of the world. Not sure if the US took them?

We had a great time. Stayed in B&Bs, guest houses and Airbnb. 2250 miles in 12 days, from NE Scotland to Lands End and back. The bike did 85mpg two-up with luggage and never missed a beat. Cruised at 60-65 on bigger roads, going to 70 on the odd motorway.

Thanks Martin for sharing it. Isn’t amazing how well the do and just a 500cc. I’ve never seen this bike in the US, DRATS! I would have surely pick one up. One of the last big 500 singles RE made. You got a real gem there.😁. I did pick up a 2000 Trials 500 that was the last big 500 RE 500 important here. 😕 I’m hoping RE comes out with a new 500 Bullet. But it’ll never have the character of the old motor. 😕

My old 2003 Bullet 500 Deluxe when first purchased
- with only 234 miles on the clock, a Cozy sidecar hack, and a blown motor.

... after I finished modifying it to suit my tastes, and converting it back to a proper side shift.

Hooligan - Swapped the chrome wheels for the greenies off of my 2005 Military and ditched the original chrome fender (full of holes from the previous taillight assembly).

....Ignore the lack of tail light, rear indicator lamps, or registration tag.......those were all installed prior to tearing up the back roads :whistle:

The 1st up and 2nd, 3rd, 4th down gear pattern made for quick shifting...and the neutral finder was interesting.
She was a fun ride while I had her.
