New bobber owner

Hello everyone I've just got myself a triumph bobber in merrelo red and I absolutely love it!
The funny thing is the only bike I've owned previously was a Suzuki 125, so this is a massive step up in power but I'm so glad I did.

Welcome and enjoy!! Sounds like a great step up from the 125, and what a great vehicle to do it with!

Welcome. I bet your loving it. The Bobbers are so easy and nice to ride. I'm sure you were pleasantly surprised to find how easy it was to make the transition.

Welcome to the site! This'll be a great first bike for you. Very easy to ride. Any changes in mind for it yet?

Each one matters.

Welcome and congratulations. Must be quite a ride difference. Watch that first gear 😀 it carries some real torque.

Welcome and congratulations! - What a fantastic choice for your first large bike. I've only recently acquired a Bobber, and I believe it is one of the easiest and best handling bikes I've owned.
