my bobber and me .. a short review and some photos

my bobber and me :-)

i got my bobber in early april ,
coming from riding a heavily modified harley sportster 1200
i did buy the bobber with no test ride ( option to bring it back before putting ,ore than 3 miles on it ) .. and the first week was a little bit weird to say the least .
i did miss the torque and the roar of my sportster ..but i did love the ABS break ..look and overall smoothness of the machine .. did feel like moving from a 70's muscle car to a modern one

the overall feeling was that i did like it ,.,. not too crazy about it and not sure if i did make the right choice

now 3 month later ...
after having finished all the mod i wanted to do ( for now )
and installing an XPIPE and british custom drag pipes ..
holly cow .. i love it !!! the power and the sound !!

great bike.. no regrets and lot of fun

a couples of photos from this morning .. took it to mulholland drive and down in venice for a couple of shots

might add a bigger tank next year .. ( cool inspiration found on this forum )

Enjoy my friend..
