Hi all. I am a new owner to the C1, my long haul bike is a PAn St1300, but when i saw the C1 i thought i would give it a try as a run around bike. I have only had it 2 days and already getting funny looks of people, now i know how robin reliant owners used to feel. Waiting for my first ticket for failing to wear a crash helmet as our local plod are not sure what to make of it.
I hope that i will beable to learn a thing or 2 about these bikes from here, I am located in Wigan near Manchester, i work for a Ambulance service and also learning to be a spanner turner so more than happy to share my workshop with other bikers in return for watching and learning.
hya - welcome and don't forget the forum if it seems quiet here.
if you get pulled then its an fpn not points so if you appeal it it often gets let off as not being in the public interest, if you don't want the hassle then find a lightweight snowboard helmet. especially when its cold.
I have been riding without helmet since I acquired my Exec C1 in 2001 and have only been ticked off once.
Just a brief word with the Officer asking that I don't let him catch me doing it again.
Enjoy your C1
