MCN Bobber Commute...

MCN Fleet: Bobber tackles the commute | MCN

Hardly ground breaking news that a Bobber won´t perform/hold up well as a commuter in the cold, English weather and pothole filled roads!

Well whoopee-do, why even bother printing this negative piece.
The Bobber is a stylish work of art, which takes it's owner on merry cruises from one pub to the next. Surely the words "work" and "Bobber" don't go together.... you go out to PLAY on a Bobber.

For the next piece, they should see how the Bobber works as a courier bike

If you want a bike to commute on there are a lot better options out there. A Honda NC750 would be a far more sensible choice. Common sense though is often in short supply.

I don't recall triumph advertising the Bobber as a daily commuter machine. Sounds like Mr Marsden has bought himself a racehorse to pull a plow.

The sad part of it all is that these negative reviews receive the most buzz because they don't sound like sold out reviews. Sigh.. oh well.

Don't see the fuss here to be honest - Use my bike to commute into the city when I can with back-pack on the back.

It filters great, a feather light clutch, grunty 2nd & 3rd gear, easy to maneuver & park as the lean angle is not massive! Easy on fuel
AND LOOKS LIKE A MILLION BUCKS!

I would ask - Why NOT commute?
It is what you make of it ....
