FNG In Savannah Ga.

.. Thank for having me, hope I can contribute. Got multiple bikes in the garage... mostly old stuff..
Bought a 2016 H.D. Softail slim NEW in 2016..,I realized I made a big mistake as soon as I discovered the new line Triumph had to offer...Had thought about a Thruxton, but didn't want to own a "cafe racer" style.. love the design.. and I honestly believe that retro design set Triumph on the correct path.
I had been searching the net for a Bobber for the past year..didn't NEED it, but figured if the price was right...we'll, last week, found it.. posted my Softtail for sale on a Tuesday. Sold it on Friday and took delivery of my 2017 EARLY this morning ...
Gonna be real curious about "troubleshooting" anything on this bike as all of my others are 73 and older.. oldest 56 preunit.
Have always LOVED the lines on any well built bobber... IMO .. Triumph has hit it out of the park with this one.. gonna be hard to top.. the Bobber Black is a nice "addition"..,but astectically it is a lateral move..,IMO..
Hey..just my $.02
Again ..,looking forward to contributing.

Welcome aboard and congrats on your purchase! Are you planning on making any changes or riding stock for awhile? What color did you get?

Each one matters.

Color.. black.. plan on "adding" to the paint.. Keeping it black but using same paint layout of the factory... the "second color" will be black with black matelic flake.. pinstripe will be flat/semi gloss black...or a dark grey to match the tank badge.
I'll do a "test" on another tank first to make sure I like it.. also gonna add it to the fenders I think ..
