Welcome to the forum and congrats!

Love the Morello red, was tough to decide between that and the Green/Silver.

Welcome, just out of interest how does it compare to the Duke, I really liked the look and sound of those when they came out.

i had the 797 monster it was a great bike fantastic on country lanes I fitted a termi pipe and had it mapped Absolutely sounded amazing but test rode the bobber a few weeks ago as I fancied something which was a bit less frantic than the monster and knew there and then I wanted one the bobber really suits my riding style just cruising about fancy getting some apes fitted at first service and maybe a new seat does anyone have any info on the apes comfort wise compared to the standard bars .

My Bobber has the tall ( I wouldn't call them ape hangers) bars, I find them much more comfortable than the stock units. I also like the look. By the way great choice of color, I'm prejudiced since it's same as mine.

Welcome to the group! I too have the high bars and really like the more upright riding position rather than leaning over the tank. I also tried the brown quilted seat for the first 1,000 miles. Loved the way it looked, but I find the factory seat more comfortable for my 200-350 mile rides. Every butt is different though.

Each one matters.
