Howdy from Thailand

Hi all,
Ozy living in Thailand for the last 20 years here.
Got a black bobber with saddle bags and wish my high handle bars would bloody hurry up!!
Those of you lucky enough to have your mini ape hangers, did you flip the original mirror and if so does it look ok?
Cheers.

Welcome to the forum! From what I gather, Thailand has a large customization culture when it comes to motorcycles, perhaps they have a few more aftermarket options for the Bobber. What's in the plans aside from the saddle bags and handle bars?

Thanks for the welcome.
No big plans yet, but that can change very quickly!
Happy riding mate.

So what's a good Thai YouTube bike blogger, or is that Vlogger. About all I've found so far is a hoon without much talk..

Welcome to the forum.

Heard that the bike culture on that side of Asia is crazy, seen some examples for myself.
How have you notice people respond to the Bobber in Thailand?

Welcome and congratulations. Have you checked around to see what their market of parts are for the Bobber as of yet?

I live in Phuket and the trumpy dealers been here about 2 years or so, the day I picked up my bobber there was 3 others waiting for their new owners, I think in total they've sold about 6 or 7 so not bad for a small island, there's also more and more bonnys showing up on the roads which is great. Not sure how there doing in Bangkok.

Cheers mate, I haven't had a check yet but if I notice anything different I'll be sure to post it.
Wouldn't mind if they made a good copy of the high handlebars though....taking forever to get mine!!

Haha hopefully we can get some more members down there and you can have a little Bobber meet up in Thailand and perhaps they'd know a few ins and outs on where to get the goods... on a timely fashion.. haha!
