I am still laughing at that.

I love the Bolt; next year I am going to buy one for my wife's first motorcycle. She is waiting for the next improved version to come out.

How do the rankings work around here boys? I am an 'adventurer' and the other guys with lots of posts go up from that...but then I see some truly spectacular rankings: 'Epic Douche Bags', 'Hegelian Scum', etc...

How many people do I have to kill to get attain such a rank?

I saw a Bolt in person yesterday and I thought it looked good.
Yeah , the little silver bits on the exhaust were a little cheesy looking, but not bad enough to be a deal breaker .

It went to its home.

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

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.
