New Canuck

Hi Folks,

Checking in from Southern BC Canada, about an hour north of the ID border. I just got a new 2018 Bobber in Morano Red. Have a Corbin Saddle on order, and will be putting some extra bits on as time goes by. Been riding some 50 years, I have three other bikes, two 1976 Honda GoldWings and a 2018 Vespa 300 Scoot (that is my winter home ride in the Caribbean). Calgary is my main home base, but I also have a summer home on Kootenay Lake in BC. I hope to become an active member. I love the Bobber, but it could use better brakes, my 76 Honda’s are better, even my Scoot has Brembos on the front. But I do really like the Bobber, it will stay in the heard for some time I think.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your wonderful new bike.

We all love photographs here, so post some of your ride when you get a chance.

Some great chaps here, so I'm sure you will enjoy the forum.

Cheerio,

Here it is, I hope. Picture was taken just after I rode it home from the dealer all the way across Calgary in stop and go late day rush-hour traffic in 90F temps. Black Helmet and black padded riding boots, it was a warm ride.

Yes Sir, it is. Here is a photo. It is off the road right now having its heads rebuilt. The photo is old, it now has the proper rear handel, not the carrier shown in the pic.

Welcome to the forum.
Congrats on your new Bobber.

I’m a big GW fan (sold my ‘08 last year after MANY happy miles).
The new 1800 just arrived in Mallorca 2 days ago, so I’ll go to see it next week at the dealership. I hear the tech/spec is amazing.

I love that particular model of the Gold Wing.

Welcome to the forum. Nice collection of motorcycles you have. Now you just have to drop in some Brembos on the Bobber and you’ll probably be around here for a long time

Welcome to the forum and congrats on an outstanding choice of bikes. Many moons ago, 2 years on a naked 1100 wing, steered me away from plastic crotch rockets towards torque and never regretted it
