Sell Bobber for the Speedmaster?

Anyone selling their Bobber for the Speedmaster? I test drove the SM last week and now I'm considering it.

I sat on - but did not ride - a Speedmaster. They look like fine bikes but I just preferred the simpler Bobber Black so I won't trade.

They are sooo different in style. I like them both, but if I could only have one I would keep my original Bobber.

I considered it, but something about the speedmaster felt wrong for me. I really do love the original bobber the most, but I am considering a fuel tank from it.

Instead of changing the tank, which normally will cost you some € (more then), the option I chose for is adding one of these small (tool) bags on the left-swing and „forced“a 1l „canister“ in it, hoping ( ok I know that will happen one day) that I will never have to take it out, but if... 1 Liter, is not much but on a moment you don’t have other petrol, 1 Liter will bring me to worldchampionworthy kms (I guess)

A) Tiger 800 Jet Black
B) Bobber black about 9.000 km ago
C) a backpack to be used with B) if you need a toothbrush AND a fresh t-shirt.
Btw WARNING!
Please try to avoid C) as it’s going to break your back on the long run.

Bobber is my first choice for same day and around town riding. And I love the design. But, have to admit that if I didn’t have my Indian Scout for multi-day trips, I’d be seriously looking at The Speedmaster.

Sorry but I don't like the look of the Speedmaster at all, one bit even.

It looks like a c*cked up Bobber to me.

Just my 5˘
