Ghostnote: Keep doing what you're doing. The only one you have to please (ultimately) is yourself.
We all have a concept of what looks good to us, based on many factors. Moreover, what looked good to me at 20 is now different that I'm 65. One of the attractions of the Bobber (at least, to me) is that it is very minimalist, i.e, devoid of windshield, big bags, sissy bars, etc. This may account for the lack of positive response you got on the sissy bar.
Yet, remember that one of the design criteria for the Bobber was that it was meant to be a platform for customization. Since I've grown conservative over the years (process of aging, I reckon), I doubt I'm make many modifications. But in my early 30s, I customized a hardtail that HD copied <kidding> into a low rider after I got it build. Glad it's out of my system, as stock appeals to me now, especially this model.
Keep being creative and have fun at it. After all: it's your bike.
