Since you are about the only one I see with clip on type bars on a Bobber, how is the riding position and comfort?
I have a TFC on order and since I canít sit on one Iím curious how she feels?
Thank you for the pics and response back.
Your bike is beautiful
Ok, hereís my honest take. Iím not a big guy 5í8Ē, athletic, slim and used to do some amateur racing and always until recently had sport bikes so my endurance on seat time is(was) pretty good. I loved the thought and look of clip ons on a bobber, so after installing them last winter, ready for the riding season this year, I ended up in the hospital with a hip replacement that was long overdue, at 62 itís the last thing I wanted.
I rode with clip ons for about a month and couldnít find comfort however not in my back but my hip due to the mid controls. If I had rearsets somehow installed I would have been fine, so I knew I didnít like the OEM bars as itís too upright and wide and found a happy medium with the semi clubman Thruxton bars.
I do plan however on Re installing the clip ons this winter and figure the foot controls issue.
Personally I think the bobber with clip ons looks aces, great look.
Your case may be different and the clip on set up would work right out of the gate for you. Looking forward to seeing what you do. If you have a set of clubmans hanging around, put them on and see how it feels, itís a pretty close set up.
