I finished this 2011 Jackpot project @ a month ago and FINALLY rode it for the very first time on the 27th of April. Now my story, I bought this new motorcycle off of a local dealer and have NEVER had a bike before, fact is I rode a harley sportster for 5 min back in 82. So this has been a new hobby. Along with several vendors such as Polaris, Lloyds, Ginz, and Witchdoctor of Ohio - I have put this project to a very happy completion. Everything that can be chromed is, no bolts can be seen, polished this and that, etc. You can see it all in the pics. I bought it in November brand new, tore is all apart, put it back together and finally rode it after researching and researching. Got my Permit ( missed 4 out of 40
), going for the riders course next and endorsement.
Again....yes I bought a brand new JAckpot, never rode it, trailered it home, tore it all apart over 5 months, put it all back together and finally am enjoying it
This "hobby" is absolutely undescribable. All I want is weather and time to ride man. It is a dangerous sport, gotta look out for others who do not look out for you constantly. Rode 7 times for 2 hours or more each and have already been ran off the rode by an old lady !!
Anyway this Forum has helped me a LOT, and a special tip of the hat to my friend Keith Stewart who took time to work with me on that first ride ! To those who have took time to answer my concerns and questions -
