Post What to love or hate about the 2017+ Triumph Bonneville Bobber?

If you can share a few things about your ownership of the 2017+ Triumph Bonneville Bobber, what would it be? The most liked or hated, share them with every one I am sure you won't be the only one.

Its went pretty good. Love the bike and have added V&H exhaust, knee pads, tank pad, dresser bars, temperature and clock on the handlebars, side mount license plate, wireless air pressure caps, cruise control, spools.

Bought a red and really liked the green and silver. Was going to trade for the green and silver but ordered a tank so I've got the red tank and green and silver. Saved me 1000's of dollars.

Dislikes: small tank, headlight and brakes

Just want to let everyone know the headlight has been replaced with a LED bulb. Works 100 times better and the brakes have actually gotten better after 500 miles.

Really like that it handles better than one would expect. Perfect size bike for me, great sized motor. And the look....awesome...I use the rear break most the time so the break combo doesn't bother me so much.

Dislikes:
It's called "Bobber", CLEANING IT SUCKS, small tank....

It Handles great
Looks great
Motor vs gear ratio is awesome
Modern tech neatly hidden

Dislike
*********
Small tank
Price on some Triumph accessories really expensive
Cleaning the chain on it is a pain

wifes bike she loves her jet black bobber but does not like gas cap too many steps at the gas station so we will switch to locking cap with separate key.also do not like the hassle of trying to get a service manual, let alone a parts manual.as we live 400 miles away from nearest dealer in northern Ontario with limited internet speed.love the o-ring chain not a fan of belt drive.love the handling and the comfort level of the seat.she has heated grips ,dresser bars,black panniers, and knee pads all are great.

The only thing i hate is that the clock is plastic and that it is digital rev indicators....

I think that is a cheap and stupid solution on such an elegant bike.

Love the bike, hate the trolls on FB that think you can only build a Bobber, or pay someone to build a Bobber, and that you shouldn't be able to buy a Bobber.

I like those curious, admiring people around my Bobber everywhere, you just can't be alone anywhere.

I love everything about the bike. The build quality is excellent, the torque is awesome, and she handles very well. Could the gas tank hold a bit more, yes, but I don't really care. The Bobber is beautiful and turns eyes wherever I go.
