Enjoy.

Welcome BIKER - i just finished my 2nd Season of Biking with my 2016 BOLT (few decades ago, i rode 2 Seasons at age 18-19)
couple opinions of mine
(1) Take a driver safety course ($250 usd +/-) afterwards you take the certificate and pass eye exam, pay money, have license
(2)  on highway, 45 curve says ride 50 mph, DO the speed limit, until MORE Comfortable accelerating thru curves
(3) LEAN INTO the Curve - a gradual Left Turn, Push Left Side of handlebars, put the BOLT down on it's side - i mean, THINK LIKE the Professional Racers, LEAN that BOLT ..... One WAY to die, is to APPROACH such a Turn to Fast, Get Scared, Pull Upward in the WRONG Direction .... IF you approach a TURN to FAST.... LEAN FORWARD on handlebars, LEAN - PUSH LEFT Hand Forward
(4) CUSTOMIZE Your BOLT to make it your own (30 minutes to 60 minutes switch out of some STOCK Parts)
- enjoy .......... E (I have 2 winding highways out from my home - 90 degree turns, etc - FUN)
