Hey yall

Hey there yall! Just wanted to introduce myself after browsing these forums for the last month or so. I'm Jesse, Im 22, Im from Dover Delaware, and Im a proud new owner of a 2017 Triumph Bobber. Her name is Luci, when I picked her up, shed been gently used, ridden soft, and put away dry. After seeing it at my local dealership (yuck), used with only 1202 miles at 8500 out the door.. including the seat and swingarm bag, I had to pull the trigger. I'm an ex motorcycle mechanic and have quite a few triumph certifications, so I'm somewhat familiar with these bikes. After 3 weeks, it's been through 100 degree days, rain storms, through a tornado watch and torrential rain in Philly, and a 400 mile day. She currently sits at 2600 miles. My other ride is a 2006 GSXR 750... DONT EXILE ME... I just like going really fast. Hahaha. My future plans for the bike include 12" mini apes (on backorder, but on the way), BC straight cut shotgun pipes, TEC X Pipe, EBC Sintered Pads, Black Seat Pan, Bullet style LED Turn Signals, a side mount vertical tag holder, a retro 40s style brake light, a custom rear fender pointed in the middle and shortened, AND WAY DOWN THE ROAD... forward controls... because $950?!?!? That's insane. Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself!

Welcome to the group! That was one **** of a deal you got there. Way to go! Sounds like you've got a lot of excellent mods planned too. Looking forward to seeing pics along the way.

Each one matters.

13 was the number I always ran on my off road bikes that were required to have a # on them. I rode in races , but I wasn't a "racer". Nobody else had it..........

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

Yours looks just like mine before you do all the mods but, way cheaper than mine. Nice purchase and welcome. BTW whose side mount plate and retro tail light are you putting on?
