Hello from WV

Hello my fellow riders,

My name is Troy, and I live in West Virginia. I recently purchased a brand new 2018 Bobber that is red and silver two-tone, and I am thrilled that it's in my garage.

I look forward to the miles ahead, getting to know you, and possibly meeting some of the regional forum goers at a meetup. Until then, ride safe.

Troy

Hello Troy,

A lovely introduction and 'welcome' to the forum mate.

Congratulations on your new ride, you know we are all going to want to see photographs?

Any plans for modifications or are you keeping her stock?

Cheerio,

Roy

Welcome, TroyT. Where did you purchase it at?

I happen to know there are a lot of nice roads up your way!

Hi Roy,

I do have plans for the bike. For instance, a tail tidy with front and rear LED signals. Eventually, I plan to replace the headlight with the LED version too. British customs drag pipes (cutaways) but plan to leave the CAT on the bike for now. If the red leather from Corbin matches the red on the tank, I'll be buying a red leather saddle. The first aftermarket part arrives today, which is an old school temp gauge to replace the oil cap.

Pictures will come soon. Right now, I am busy teaching my daughter to ride. Well, she has her license but will only ride with me since her confidence isn't that high yet. Most of my free time is spent with her before she goes off to university later this summer.

Cheers,
Troy

Thank you, glad to be here. I purchased the bike from Triumph of Harrisonburg. It was a great deal as they were motivated to move the leftover inventory. After the first maintenance, I'll likely start using Motorcycles of Dulles for service since I work in that area.

I purchased my Bobber from MoD. Recently just purchased a BMW from them. Good folks.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.
