I'm late to the party but I actually sat and saw one in person today.

It's a thing of beauty! What struck me most was the clutch, smoooooth as silk. I don't know if I can go back to cables after feeling that.

WOO WOO! My dealer called me today. My bike is sitting portside in Los Angelas CA. It *might* arrive in his shop next Thursday. I *might* be able to pick it up on Saturday the 18th.
He has to put on the heated grips and I am good to go.

Now that's the kind of call that can lift your spirits.

I thought you were all set up to buy a Bolt? Having second thoughts? Strangely, there seems to be a lot of cross shopping on the CB with a Bolt, Sportster, and Bonneville.

Well, they are both on the short list. I keep going from CB to Bolt to Guzzi Stone, but ohhhh the Truxton looks nice. If I were Jay Lenno I'd buy em all but my garage is only big enough for one.

For now the Bolt is on top because it's the most different. I've never owned a cruiser and the CB is a lot like the 919 I currently have.

Man aint that the truth
I haven't seen the bolt in person yet, but it looks like a winner from across the keyboard. And I am already missing my cruiser!
Its rained so much since I slid mine off the trailer and inside..I haven't even got good pictures to brag on

If you want different, get the Guzzi Stone. There will be far less of them on the road than any of the other bikes listed above. IMHO, the Bolt is just another cruiser. Of course, if a cruiser is what you're after, then the Bolt isn't a bad choice.

The Stone is also the lightest and most nimble of the of the bunch too.

To the rest of the world the CB11 looks nothing like a 919!

Mr. George was Mr. CB

Thanks rajun Cajun for the You Tubes links of Mr. George Gonzales Jr. He was my sons and myselfs hero. Of the 55 motorcycle I have owned no one has sold me more than Mr. George.
