New from Switzerland

Hi everybody!
I hope you guys are doing alright!
I am the happy owner of a Bobber black, since July, and we already have had some amazing time together! Iím still impressed by the ease, look and sound she has (yes, itís a she!). I ride to work, here near Luzern in Switzerland, and itís very nice to commute. As a matter of fact, my ride is much longer now, as I take the longest and narrowest roads I find! Unfortunately, with winter, dark, rain, fog... Iíve parked Bobbette for some month, but sheís constantly in my thoughts!
Before, I rode a Bonneville SE, and a T100 for a month, but although they were nice to begin with, I really fall for the Bobber...!
In term of customization, I chose the ape hangers, the Fox shocks, some protecting bars in the front. Iím still working on the swap to a Speedmaster tank, and painting, but Iím currently benchmarking the painters. And still working on the design for the painting too!
Actually, Iím getting a strong influence from the Vicla Mexican style from HD, so Iím considering a lot of things...! I know itís not the same type of bike, they are usually modified Softails, but with my iPad, I draw I draw I draw, and some things come out as ideas!
Cheerio!

Beautiful pic, and welcome to the site! Sounds like you've got lots of plans for your bike already. Looking forward to seeing pics as you work on it. Feel free to start a build thread and post a link to the thread in the build thread links thread.

Each one matters.

I did quite a lot of work over the years for Hoffman-La Roche in Basel, and was always amused if you turned up at Head Office at 1200, you'd get killed in the lunch exodus, and vice versa at 1300...
