New from NC

Just joined, gathering info. Looking to make the jump from the Harley world into a Bobber. Thought I wanted the Bobber Black but I keep getting drawn back to the original Bobber.

From the southeast coastal North Carolina area.

Welcome!

I did it, and am a very happy triumph owner now.

Welcome. Personally I went with the original because I like the lighter look (like an original bobber) but the choice is yours and both are nice, I had a Harley Fat Boy and it felt like a tank compared to my FXR.

Welcome. I did it as well although owning an HD Low Rider was some time ago. Love the original
Bobber and ordered on the spot when it was introduced. You won’t be disappointed.

Welcome to the site. Decisions, decisions....many of us have been in the same position you are with regard to making this decision. Some argue that the Bobber Black is a better deal because of the included cruise control etc, while others follow their heart and choose the one that instills that feeling of joy evoked by the old school look of the original Bobber. You really can't go wrong either way. Good luck with your decision!

Each one matters.

Welcome to the forum. I'm from central North Carolina near Charlotte.

I rode the two Bobbers side-by-side and went with the Bobber Black. I wanted dual disks on the front.

I went for a ride yesterday and must have gotten waves from a dozen Harley riders. I used to ride BMWs so I am not used to that.

One other factor -- BB is heavier, by about 25 lbs as I recall.
