New member new to Triumph

Hi, just your everyday new member, stumbled in to a dealer that sold triumph saw the new Bobber Black spent 4 months thinking about the Bobber black and finally bought it. It is nice to have a bike lite and agile, coming from a H-D Roadglide this thing feels like a scooter. After finally getting 500 miles around town and having the first service done I rode it up to Daytona bike week. 200 miles 3 fuel stops, not as comfy as the Roadglide but still fun.

This is as it left the dealer I have since added the dreaded Hepco rear rack as well as changed the tank out for the dark flat green one. I like the look but had I known the compatibility I would have gone with the speed master (?) The extra fuel would be nice

Congrats! I just recently bought a BB and joined as well. Same observations as you... light and agile but bigger tank and comfort would have been nice out the door. However the beauty is that these are simple fixes. I installed the Speedmaster tank, a Fox shock, and a custom seat. Now I really don’t have anything to complain about.
