Well done Alan,

I was on the highway today, cruse control on at around 80 and with my windshield working well, this little Bobber was wonderful. For those long rides, and/or high speed cruising these little Triumphs are much more capable than some folks realize.

Not for the purists? Possibly but for those who want to get some real miles on these bikes and in as much comfort as possible, totally.

Pic is of my Bobber fully loaded 'yesterday', windshield and all on a camping trip.

Cheerio,

Roy

That looks really good . . . but for me a Bobber is windscreen free. Besides, my rides aren't that long anymore.

I just did 1,300 miles in 3 days. Including a 400 mile stretch into high wind. My opinion is that a windshield is not necessary. It kills the look and defeats the minimalist thing for which one buys a Bobber. Just my two cents.
But yeah, it does great at 70-80 MPH. I think it's a totally competent mid-range road-tripper. I was completely comfortable for 4 or 5 hours at a time. If anything, the wind kinda props you up.
