New Leftover 2015 Bolt C-Spec
« on: May 05, 2017, 12:29:45 AM »
I'm Kurt, live on the EastSide (over the bridge) from Seattle.  This is my 41st motorcycle.  (I think I have a problem!)
https://sites.google.com/site/kurtoffroad/home/boltc-spec

I made 4 simple mods to it so far,
1 - got rid of the sticker on the gas tank
2 - removed the license plate bracket with the reflectors
3 - painted the heat shields flat black
4 - drilled 5 holes in the back end of the exhaust to give it just a bit more sound.

I also have a 2014 Super Tenere.
Here is a site with my 41 bike history:  http://kurtbikehistrory.azurewebsites.net/Index.html

October 9th, 2016 the sky fell. Already I'm in deep withdrawal. I don't know if I'm going to make it.

Good things come to those who wait...greater things happen to those who get off their arse and do something about it.

I'm terrified to buy number 42, it sounds so "final", like playing my last chit!

I notice the soft spot for Yamaha, Ducati, and Honda!

My uncle had a softtail for around 5 months and hated it, got a nice vstar (1200 i think?) that he loved. He swears by Honda and Yamaha.

He swears at Harleys.

Ducati's are something to love passionately, not logically.  Yamaha makes the highest quality bikes (as the recent Web articles have been stating, and I have been stating for years).
