Hi from Berkhamsted
Ordered my bobber a few months ago. Just been down to finalise the deal as it had arrived.
Moving from a Thunderbird Commander which has been a brilliant bike but I'm just not going long distances much any more and wanted something a bit lighter to push around.
Took one for a test drive just to make sure.
I've ordered a brown ribbed seat and the right side pannier, somewhere to carry waterproofs and other gear.
But mainly ordered the ape hangers in black, being vertically challenged I found that the bobber's bars were a little too far forward and gave me too much wrist strain in slow traffic. I had the same problem, albeit a bit more pronounced, with my 900 Thruxton. It was great on the open road but in heavy traffic got a bit too much.
Must be old age catching up with me.
I'd been considering a T120 Black but when I saw the new Bobber, well I was smitten.
I might miss the torque on the Thunderbird a bit but the bobber is really nice and light to throw around and has plenty of get up and go.
I should be a proud owner next Saturday, got to wait a bit longer for the new bars looks like July for them.
So here I am looking for ideas and like minded souls.
