Smile My Bobber Makes Me.......

....Want To Ride More......

I've had some great bikes in my life but I really can't recall any bike that gave me the same feeling as this wonderful Triumph. Good example; I just popped to the bank and didn't want to come home, so took the long way around.

I find I do this a lot, I run a quick errand just and just want to keep on going. Mind you it's got me in trouble more than a few time, "just popping out, will be right back", is what my wife hears - three hours later..

I just LOVE riding this bike...

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Cheerio,

Roy

I think it's a combination of summer weather, sense of freedom and adrenaline rush that motorcycling provides.

The bobber is just plain fun to ride with little effort. It also garners lots of attention from guys and gals.... What's not to ❤!!!

My Bobber makes me... want to park it in my living room to just stare at it. Triumph really got this design right.

Well it appears my Bobber also.....

.....makes me lose all sense of direction..!

My wife wanted me to run to the store to pick up some things for dinner. Happy to do this of course. A 38 mile round tip - only problem is the store is less than a mile from the house....

Cheerio,

Roy
