The Bear Ju's Bobber

Got this baby in the middle of summer. Went in looking at a used scrambler and just fell in love with this. Loved the way it looked stock and wasn't going to change anything but we all know how that goes.

A list of all the mods thus far
1. Panniers (which the bars will be customized to make a better full rack for longer trips)
2. Side mount plate
3. Mass moto exhaust (not yet fitted due to excellent riding weather)
4. Motodemic adaptive light
5. Watson design st front indicators
6. Black engine covers
7. Handlerbar clamp
8. Throttle body covers

On the fence about what to do for the rear. Options are
1. Leave it as is just a smaller light setup
2. Leave full length fender and make a led strip like I did for my thruxton
3. Chop the fender down to half and do the led strip
4. Mod the seat and put the lights in the seat pan


Day I got her



Today




And that's why I need a full rack. In case I need to travel with my gear. That setup is no fun.

New air intake coming as well as exhaust installed once I have a free day I want to spend doing that instead of riding.

Really nice accessories you´ve added!
The Watson indicators are a really cool touch.

With the motodemic headlight, i think option 4 will look great for the rear setup...

He might want to rethink his firefighter gear if all his lights are going to be in the seat. I agree, it would be a great look. I'm waiting for someone to come up with an integrated led for that fender hoop mount. Someone with a 3d printer could come up with a led lighting strip housing. Gotta find a guy that can make stuff like that.

Well my plan was to weld up that removable rack for when I need to travel with gear. Whatever light setup I create I was going to basically setup like a separate tow connector/light that I could slap onto the rack and quick connect for when I needed it which wouldn't be often

Looks really great! If it would be legal here, I'd have a hard time choosing between these rear end options as well... But since german law is so restrictive I'll be happy to find any legal option... (once I have my Bobber of course...)
great nickname btw... It's been too long since I saw inglourious basterds...
