New to the family

Hey everybody. I’m from Texarkana, Texas and I have been riding since I was 16 years old. I just got the 2018 Yamaha bolt with only 40 miles on it. I rode her for a good 500 miles already.

My beginner bike was a 06 Suzuki C50 Boulevard. It was time for another bike, and I got a bolt. I am very pleased with the bike and looking forward for another good journey with this bike.

No doubt, unfortunately I am out of town in Hawaii for work. I’ll be back June 17th. Still appreciate the offer.

Welcome Prospect! Congrats on your new bolt. Looks mean. Happy to have you here.

I've also got a 950, tour style, in Richardson, TX.

Gotta love east Tx. Nice, green rides out there. Nice folks. Go say hi in the TX discussion, too . Met AsphaltWarrior, WarriorWife, and Indian Chris that way. Maybe we can get some folks together for a ride some day. Back when it was still cold we went for a great ride out to Hot Springs. Big fun.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Nice looking bike. Sorry you're "stuck" in Hawaii (while I get to look out the window at yet another April snowfall...lol).
