Hey all, This might be a massive mistake but I'm pretty tempted by the Yamaha Bolt. I love my Street Triple but at the moment I don't really have the energy for it. It's only fun when you ride it fast and in the 5 months I've owned it I haven't been on one proper ride through twisties. It has only been used for the commute to work, up and down the motorway. I still have chicken strips... This feels like such a waste of this kind of bike. On the ride to work I'm usually half asleep and dealing with a lot of traffic, and on the ride home I'm too tired from my 12hr shift. It seems a lazier, more relaxed, torque oriented bike would suit me better. None of my friends own bikes so it looks more and more likely that I won't be going on many if any joy rides. Most of the time when I give the striple a hit it's because I know that's what it's built to do rather than because I feel like it. I rode my friend's HD 883 Iron and I loved it, apart from the brakes and the vibes. But I think what I liked most about it was you didn't have to thrash it to have fun on it. I will try to tee up a test ride on the Bolt soon. Does anyone here own one and made a similar move?
