New member from Ireland

Alan, 48, from Ireland. Bobber, in black, and about to put on the rubber tank pads and heated grips this week (first bike I will ever own with heated grips in 34 years of biking; my arthritic fingers will thank me).

Have owned various Jap, German and Italian machines and moved on to Harleys about five years ago (yes, I know). Had no plans to change but a bobber test ride for a laugh changed that. Great machine and in fairness, beautiful to look at.

I will add one of those small dart screens shortly but what I really want is a set of crash bars. I’m leaning towards SW Motech but I like the large Fehling ones but can’t seem to find good pics of them on a bobber?? .....

Anyway, this forum is great, I’ve been stalking for some time now. I won’t be of any use but I’ll post some pics of the bike in very scenic spots from time to time to make an effort.

Alan

Welcome to the forum!

A few years ago I spent a very happy ten days touring around Ireland on a BMW R1200GS. Ireland is a beautiful place!

Welcome aboard! Glad to hear you're already making changes to create just the right bike for you. You'll love the heated grips as the temps keep dropping. Looking forward to seeing pics of your travels.

Each one matters.

When I first started riding seriously my BMW dealer tried to get me to buy heated grips. I poo-pooed the idea. What difference could heated hand grips make? Finally I bought a bike that came with heated grips. Was I ever surprised to see what I had been missing!?! The heated grips made riding so much more comfortable on cool days.
