It went to its home.

Please feel free to try again, and keep it on topic, about the Bolt, this time. :thumb

I love this bike. Where is the passenger seat and foot rests?

D.T. 04-09-2013 07:12 AM

Wow, the bike is causing quite the stir! It got punted to CS&M!

kraven 04-09-2013 07:13 AM

Star offers it (passenger seat and pegs) as an add on package for 200 bucks retail.
The Bolt and r-spec use different parts because of the shocks, so you just have to buy the right one.

There's a passenger backrest (tall and short) and all kinds of stuff available via Star

200 bones for a little piece of foam a few brackets seems crazy to me.

That's what happens when you print too many bones.

Thread gets punted and you come back in the new thread with monetary policy commentary - are you daft?

you can dance if you want too, but you have to pay the fiddler.

Iíll repost this here since this may actually turn into a useful thread.

I got to test sit a Bolt this weekend. Yamaha had a demo truck in Charleston and I went to ride the FJR and Tenere. They had a Bolt there that caught my eye but unfortunately it wasnít available to ride. It was a green R-Spec with the piggyback reservoir rear shocks. It looked and felt like a production bike but it wasnít available to ride or start, just look at and sit on. I didnít take a picture but it looked just like what I have seen on the web. The fit and finish looked great but the only aesthetic blemish (to me) was that the frame tubes looked a little skinny. I have no idea what their diameter is and Iím sure they are engineered to work but it just caught my eye.<o:p></o:p>

The Bolt fit me (Iím 5í 8Ē with 30Ē inseam) pretty well with everything in a fairly comfortable position except the air filter cover on the right side stuck out into where my leg/knee wanted to be. Other than that the ergos were really good and the bike looked like a great, simple bike. <o:p></o:p>

I see the resemblance between the Bolt and the Harley Iron. I do like the look of the Harley Iron for daily riding (TerrytoriĒs looks great) but the Iron was not comfortable to me. I have a Harley Ultra Classic that I really like for touring and daily commuting. I found the Ultra Classic design to be much more than the sum of the parts so Iím sure that the Iron is that way for some people but the Bolt just fits me better. Iím looking forward to riding one.
