Smile Back in the saddle from Norway

Greetings from up north in Norway

Rode bikes from 18-35, and then got kids. Now they are older and I got the «itch» this summer and after deliberating very shortly bought the showroom floor Bobber Black in matte paint from my local dealer.

Took delivery some weeks ago, and love it. Great feel and handles superbly for the type of bike. Really a feat of engineering.

Don’t love the meagre amount of fuel they run it on at low revs due to the Euro 4 restrictions, but see some have remedies for that. I’ll see what I end up with after a bit of research.

The bike is undergoing some mods, so I’ll present it when most is done (is it ever though....)

Welcome to the forum.
I’ve had the itches many times.
Sometimes the doc cured it, but most times the remedy was my friendly bike dealer

I agree that the low speed fueling is an issue.
A booster plug is one solution.
I have also tried the RAPID BIKE EASY module, but eventually removed it. Works amazing on the R1200GSA, but just could not get the trim right on the Bobber & the CEL light kept coming on (and the bike felt “wrong”).
So for me, the Booster plug works and is well priced.

Welcome to the forum! I came back from a 20 year break from motorcycling with the Bobber as well. Just moved my youngest into college two days ago.

Welcome from another Country where we have to park our bikes in the snow months. O-well it gives us lots of time for mods in the winter. The Bobber is a great bike, Triumph did a super job on the engineering and the looks. The day I picked mine up in Calgary, about 1 month ago now, they actually did three Bobber deliveries on the same day. Even they noted that was rare, but they said the current Triumph line-up is one of there top sellers in the past year. They also carry Yamaha, Moto Guzzi, BMW, Suzuki, KTM, Vespa, along with other brands. Probably the busiest motorcycle dealer in town. I got a note in the mail today I have a package to pick up at my local Post Office tomorrow, I think it might be my new Corbin Saddle in Bomber Brown, or that is what I am hoping for.
