Free Bobber Brake Fix
1. Ride your Bobber to your nearest Harley Davidson Dealer
2. Ask to test ride the used Harley of your choice, the older the better!
3. On your way home, re-evaluate your Bobbers Brake system.
If you do not have an H.D. dealer nearby any cruiser over 600 lbs will work!
Some points to remember:
Harley still owns 75% of the street market, I doubt there's anything seriously
wrong with them, and I don't see any evidence of "braking induced accidents"
The other day I hit the ABS on my Bobber's front brake at 30 mph, on a dry road
with the sticky Avon tire, absolute proof of braking power!
Those of you who say its not the power, but the "feel", I can understand. You are
probably transitioning from a Sport bike! What I don't understand is why you
can't re-calibrate? I routinely ride Harleys, and a retro Sport bike with twin
mono-block 330 MMs and the Bobber all in the same day! They are hugely
different, Though I have been riding for almost 5 decades I think my skills peaked
a long time ago!
I'm way to cheap to spend money on a perfectly good brake system!
Triumph got it right the first time, they haven't made to many mistakes lately!!!
