Howdy from Las Vegas :)

Been a bolt owner for a few years [2015], and LOVE it ! .. attached..

I wouldn't trade it for anything, but 500 mile days take their toll.. so I have been looking at adding an Eluder to our garage .. Got to test ride one and.. WOW, that is some amazing engineering ! Husband loves his Night Train and just got a new HDRG, but I can't even compare it comfort/maneuverability wise to the Eluder, so I'm struggling as whether to grab an '18 (Eluder) or wait for the newly rumor confirmed '19.

Looking forward to discussing that further here

Hi bz!
Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. Great looking rides you guys have there. Please keep us updated if you go for the Eluder, they’re great looking bikes.

500 mile day trip on a Bolt is hardcore, esp if you turned it into a hardtail with that sprung seat.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Nice looking Bolt you got there, but I have to concur that 500 miles days would be rough on it.

Thanks for the welcome notes and quick links !
300 + is average on our sight seeing days, but we push 5 as often as possible.. We get to blame frequent stops on the Bolt's small gas tank instead of our old age
