What the **** is it?

I was at an event at a very large Harley Dealership this weekend. There were probably 200 or more Harley’s there and most value at much more than my triumph. That didn’t stop the weird British bike from drawing a crowd every time I looked at it. I love this picture.

My experience is that Harley riders really dig the bobber. It's authentic.

I've been ridding since the '80's. I've ridden mostly BMWs and Ducatis. I've never got a wave from a Harley rider but since I've been riding a Bobber Harley riders wave at me all the time.

In Texas pretty much everyone waves regardless of what you ride. Unless you ride a scooter. Haaaa...you would probably still get a few waves.

I have been riding Harleys for 27 years and still have 2 in my garage and ordered a Bobber sight unseen before they even came out in 2016 so I guess I have to agree with you!

As an owner of both, I understand the interest. "Most" guys on Harleys just love to ride and can appreciate something cool and original.

I’ve always found that Harley die hards if asked, also like Triumphs. I think many Amari and view Triumph as the UK equivalent to HD.

Yeah. I don’t mean anything bad by my post. I love the Harley’s and all motorcycles. I have my whole life. I have run into very few people that have had anything negative to say about the triumph. More than anything I get a kick out ribbing my firiends (who all ride Harley’s) that my bike gets more attention than their bikes that cost 2x as much.

I get waves from just about everyone whatever I ride on. Most don’t take or have the time to figure out what you’re riding and if they should wave or not. They just do it. Maybe the Pacific NW is just friendlier 🤔. But there are those who just don’t get the camaraderie of acknowledging another rider. Too bad for them.
