Hello, new to Star bikes

I joined this forum because of the Bolt. From my brief research, looks like the motor is a carryover from another Star bike (V-Star 950), which makes me feel better being a early adopter.

Me personally, I'm a long time motorcycle rider....never owned a cruiser before though.

My main interest in the Bolt is for my wife. She has expressed interesting in riding motorcycles, and after seeing the announcement of this bike, I thought it would be a perfect fit for her. She already stated she prefers a cruiser style vs. the ones she is used to seeing in the garage (performance bikes and adventure bikes).

While the Bolt nor any of the Star line-up is my cup of tea at this moment, I can see myself having some fun customizing it for her, as she see's fits.

Welcome the the forum. Well I'll bet your wife will be riding a New Bolt fairly soon, and I think you'll find lots of help here to customize her new bike!

Hello, new to Star bikes

Welcome to the group.

The 950 is a proven success story for sure. I predict a new Bolt will get the better of YOU and you too will find yourself enjoying the cruiser lifestyle

Is that the same one mounted in your bike frame, or do you have another "motor only" sitting in the garage that you've been starting up and running as a test?

I can definitely see myself enjoying Bolt as much, if not more than her. I see it as a great urban, city bike.

I foresee the model doing very well for Yamaha.
