Bobber Spotted, (In The Wild) Bearsted, Kent

Today myself and my wife were returning home to the village Where we live... my wife was driving and as we passed a pub named the White Horse I let out an almighty cry...

Me: holy sh1t there’s a Bobber.
Wife: calm down for god sake, you have one at home.
Me: but it’s another one out in the wild.
Wife: you’re an idiot.

I guess only fellow owners would understand

That's really funny,

Myself, my wife and my sister in law, all had a good laugh. I think your wife nailed it but then again an idiot 'with' a Bobber is better than an idiot without one....

Aside from meeting up with a forum member last year I have only ever seen one other Bobber in the wild, so pretty rare in some parts.

Now we just need a photo of your wife in the car giving you a filthy look and with a bubble?

Cheerio,

Roy

That's some funny shiznit right there!

It sounds exactly like me and MY wife! (Back when she used to laugh at my jokes and occasionally produce some funny banter of her own)

Ha ha ha! Definitely sounds like me and my wife!
I’ve had my Bobber for 2 months now and have yet to see another in the wild, but my reaction would be identical! I have had many comments and thumbs up signs though. I’m a Happy Idiot!

"...and here we see the lively bobber out in its natural habitat, oozing confidence of ability, awaiting its next prey....what a stunning creature."

That probably would have been verbatim if it were me and my wife.

LOVE it! I and my wife would have the same reaction...lol I have yet to see another Bobber on the road. When I was getting ready to leave the dealership after taking mine out of storage, another guy came up and said he had a Bobber too, but he hadn't ridden it that day. The cold streak continues...
