    I've been away for a while, but it's because I've been off the bike. About a month ago, I was out having a very enjoyable ride around town-- probably rode around for about an hour. I was on my way...

    Rode the Blast about 100 miles yesterday, including some twisty roads. Continuing to dig this bike!

    I didn't go too fast (i.e., no interstate) because the tires are pretty old (2010 and 2013 build...

    Given how cheap they are, it might be more feasible for you to get a Blast than for me to figure out how to make/upload a video about one! :)

    Nah-- I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything. I'm happy to just exist in my own reality and don't care if anyone else agrees. Yesterday, I went on a little longer ride and had earplugs in and...

    And, since I'm in such a good mood about this bike, I just went ahead and pulled the trigger on that Pro-Series exhaust on Ebay.

    Thanks for the heads up on that, 34nineteen!

    I am happy to report that the Blast yielded to my awesome mechanical skills and is now running.

    Ok, just kidding. The truth? It warmed up to 50 today, I rolled it out of the garage, hit the...

    It has *only* a kick starter-- no electric start at all!



    They quit bringing them into the U.S. in 2017, so it's used only on that bike now.

    I see the muffler you're talking about on Ebay, and I did a search on Pro Series exhausts. There are a couple of forum reports that say the muffle is great, but that it "fatigues to death" and the...

    Oh-- when Barrett said "check both the primary/trans and engine oil levels" I assumed that meant there were separate cases. Is there separate oil but not separate cases?

    Having never owned a Harley, Buell, or any other bike with a separate transmission case, that part will be a learning experience for me. So your advice on that is...

    Thanks for the advice, guys. Agree that the cold weather may be causing some kind of stickiness in the clutch-- the amount of pull at the lever feels very normal/typical, so I don't think it's a...

    I'm not in Texas, but up in the Great White North. Unfortunately, though, our state is in the power grid that also covers Texas. Due to the demand there, we had to have rolling blackouts here as the...
