Being totally honest, if I had to have one bike and one bike only, it would not be a Bobber.
As much as I like the Bobber, it simply has too many compromises as a ďdo-it-allĒ bike;
No luggage (or very limited), no passenger, bad stock brakes, no wet weather protection, bad illumination at night, etc etc.
Saying that, I would certainly consider another Triumph model such as the Tiger 800 or 1200.

My GSA has spoilt me rotten and there is no way Iíd be on any other bike when the sun hides away and bad weather comes along.
Riding safe & warm is as important as enjoying the ride. I simply love riding my GSA in the rain!
To end on a positive note, as a second bike the Bobber is everything I could wish for. It has an unrivaled feel good factor and I smile every time the sun comes out & we go out to play (which is a lot here in Mallorca...
