Hello from SF Bay Area
« on: February 09, 2021, 11:38:10 pm »
Not new to riding but new to the Bolt world. Ended up with a Bolt because I heard it was a mid-class cruiser that was easy to modify. Since I'm (partially) mechanically inclined, seemed like a good fit; I like working on my baby. Started out with a C-spec and quickly realized the seating position killed my back and hips (I'm a tall beefy gal at 5'10 and about 170#). After a few months, stumbled upon a brand new 2019 Bolt that was being cleared out of a small dealership and swooped a solid deal.

My new gal and I have been on many adventures and seen a few upgrades since August 2020. Just turned 6k miles and she's got so many more to go. Happy to be riding again after many years.

I have that same year, model, and color.  Looks like you did a great job on your "upgrades."

Right on! Thanks! I love that we have some "similar" upgrades but they look so very different. It's one of my favorite things about the Bolt.

Yeah nice looking mods, congrats on getting the bike.  4 years later for me and I still love the damn thing.  Why'd you stop riding?
