  • Pulled the trigger on a new Yamaha Bolt today.

    Actually *two* of them... So yesterday I kept hearing a clunking noise whenever I hit a bump and finally isolated it to the left side exhaust. I thought I'd lost one of the support bolts, but when I went out to fix it today, I noticed BOTH frame bolts, that hold the exhaust support on, were missing! And of course they're a specialized bolt, so you can't get them at a local hardware store and I had to order OE Yamaha "bolts".

    (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

    Hahahah, love it. And here I was ready to see pics of your new Bolt.
    Remember. No matter where you go, there you are.

              I read that whole thing.....and wondered what did a rattle on your old bike have to do with buying 2 new bikes.

                Hey ! I used the excuse that my RoadStar had a messed up speedometer face to justify buying a 2015 XVS1300CT!

                  I knew it. Still couldn’t help myself from opening this thread. But I knew it wasn’t real.

                      Looks fun for around town.

                      That's definitely a cool looking Bolt. I made cafe racer out of a CB750 years ago, so I have a bit of a soft spot for them. Though I don't know if my body could handle the riding portion with clip-ons anymore. Duke, I think you've got it right, it'd make for a good round town bike.

                      The top triple is drilled for risers, it would be easy to put bars on it.
                      It's better than just an around town bike. I had a Bolt up to 100mph and it handled it beautifully.

                    i am appalled...the twisting of words to deceive a fellow human being is deplorable...in a time when the president of the united states of america bends over backwards to give the american public the unvarnished truth so we as a nation can make decisions based on the best evidence available, gleaned by law enforcement officials that have a long and untarnished reputation for transparency...i find it reprehensible that one of the founding fathers of this sacred place would perpetrate such a blazing deception...beacon of light indeed...

                    can i hear an amen...your most reverend apostle of all that is true and pure...lord heavenly zing...

                    ps...you can send your tax free donations to zing ministries or call our 24 hour hotline at br-549

                    pss...who just yelled "up yours" in the back row there...ushers, show that man the door...harumph...

                      ZP, if I didn't know any better, I'd think you and Father PoBasturd were separated at birth. You both definitely have a flare for the written language.
