Gday from Melbourne Australia

Hi all,

New to the Triumph Bonneville Bobber, entered a competition back in January 2019 on the Jameson Whiskey dry and lime 4 pack cans here in Australia, I was getting sick of the wild turkey and coke over summer and wanted a refreshing change of drink, they were giving away a Triumph Bonneville Bobber on the packaging, cut a long story short, I won the bike, and Iím in love with it, itís silver and green on the tank with black guards. Had it since the 12 of June 2019.

Married, 3 kids, 30, 21 and 16, live on a few acres with horses, sheep, chickens, dog and cats. Drive a truck for a living.

Welcome to the forum! Wow! What a great way to get a new bike.

Wild Turkey and coke? You are riding a British bike. We need to get you switched over to Single Malt Scotch.

Gunga - you *******! You know how many cans of Jameson’s I drank trying to win that Bobber?! I was trying to win it for my step dad to be honest - I already have a Morello red one and I love it 👍🏼
Enjoy the bike mate, they’re amazing!

Cheers Ben.

Hahaha, they were good to gfspencer, very nice drop, I entered the competition twice and they had been trying to contact me for 6 weeks as I donít answer private blocked numbers on my phone, eventually a girl left a message on my voicemail with a return number.

Have been trying the single malt scotch whiskeys of late, especially the Jameson now but on the rocks with a dash of lime now.

Hey Gunga!, Welcome!

I have to say, I think you would win for the most unique "how I got on a Bobber" story contest! If it were a contest.

Congrats Man!, wish I'd have won mine! Oh the mods I could afford then!!
