This is the BOLT thread, right?
Found myself shopping for bikes yesterday. The Sportster 1200C really "spoke" to me. Holiday weekend so the shop closed at noon. I arrived at about 11:30 and they wouldn't take a deposit because there was no time to do the paperwork. I was buying, I like it that much.
So, I wanders off the the Honda/Yamaha dealer. Looked at the CB1100. Didn't like it at all.
Then my eyes wandered over to the BOLT. In white. HAS to be the UGLIEST motorcycle I have EVER seen. EVER. The fit and finish is at best pitiful. The tank edge is horrid. No smooth lines anywhere. Compared it in my mind to the fit and finish of the 1200C you can't. Reminiscent of the old Suzuki Savage. Matter of fact, it would suit a thumper.....SR500 power plant?
