Just got a Bobber after 12 years of no motorcycles
Greetings from Layton Utah! My wife totally surprised me by having a new Bobber delivered to my house 2 weeks ago! I get home after work on a Friday and my wife and I are setting on the porch and a truck pulls up by the house pulling a trailer with BMW & Triumph decals on the trailer. I tell my wife that one of our neighbors must have bought a motorcycle. Well the driver opens the trailer and wheels out a bobber and then all of a sudden he is pushing it up to my house!
Couldn't believe it... she said it is a combination present for my 50th birthday and our 30 year wedding anniversary coming up in October. I got the best wife in the world!
I haven't had a motorcycle in about 12 years and wasnt even looking for one. I finally cave and agreed to cosign for my 22 year old son to buy a Street Twin (after hearing him beg since he was 17 for a motorcycle) and when I went with him to get it, I saw a Bobber and thought it was just so classy and cool. I was polarized by it and I was a sport bike kind of guy before. Got home and just showed a picture to my wife (didnt even say I wanted one) and said isn't that cool?! She took it and ran with it.
I grew up on dirt bikes but I only had 2 road bikes, a Honda Hawk GT 650 and my last bike was a Honda 919. So glad she picked this bike! I cant stop looking, thinking, and wanting to ride it! I always wanted a Speed Triple when I had my 919 and I'm surprised she picked this style bike but wow..I enjoy it so much more than my 919 in every way. I am so impressed with how well it handles...it is perfect for the mountain roads out here.
By the way, I got the Ironstone and it already had the side mounted license plate on it.
