Post New member from Middletown, NY

Hey guys!

Purchased my '17 Bobber a few weeks ago and am really enjoy her around town. I also have a '15 Road Glide Special all done up, which is ideal for longer rides but I also wanted something different... completely different.

The Bobber feels like a bicycle compared to the Harely in weight and handling. At 5'6" it takes a TON of effort to move that Harley when its not running.

Purchased the Bobber already modified... which I'm guessing greatly reduced the potential universe of potential buyers, and drove the price down ($7400 w/2,300 miles). It had many of the mods I would be doing anyway.

Of course I can't leave anything alone, so I added a fly screen, up and in risers, swing arm bag, new EBC brakes and just waiting for the 16 tooth front sprocket to arrive from A & J 's. It came with full exhaust, short rear fender, changed directions & tail lights, air box elimination, seat and more!

If anyone recognizes the bike (its from PA) please let me know.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the group! The mods you have planned sound great, so please keep us updated and let us know what you love and what you don't, just like the rest of us do as much as we can.

Each one matters.
