Hello, Just picked up my first bobber/cruiser whatever you guys call it lol. Im in my 40's and was thinking taking relaxing rides. I have been riding sport bikes for years and when I saw the Bolt I loved it right away. I was considering getting a cruiser to slow down a bit and avoid speeding tickets. On the first ride home from the dealer I realized its a totally laid back vibe. It was amazing but cold. Looking for ward to learning more about the bike and the culture through this forum.
Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee there motoman21.
Gotta agree with my forum partners here, pics are a must and we all slow down sooner or later.
I ride the bolts cousin, the 950. I've sat on a few at various dealerships, had a nice feel to it.
Welcome from another member just getting his own 1300 set up for spring riding. Took a 35 year hiatus after a bad accident, then got back into riding a couple of years ago and last fall undertook a cross country on my '08 Suzuki C50. Wonderful, comfortable bike, but underpowered for what I did. Hoping the 1300 will cure that
Have fun reading all the info available here and if you have any questions, ask away. There are a good number of knowledgeable people here and while it may take a little for someone to answer, they are willing to help.
Finally fixed my issue with passwords lol. I will post pics when I get done modding her up. I don't like the chrome bits and silver so I'm gonna plasti-dip the headlight bezel and display rings, black out the silver exhaust bits with some black high temp paint. Get some black braided lines and a slip on cobra exhaust.
