I agree with Mike's description of the Bobber. You just feel as one with the bike.
I have two other bikes, a Ducati Diavel and a Triumph Tiger 800 roadie. I love them all. My distinctions:
Bobber: FUN. Just the most all-round fun you can have and brilliant in runs below 200 miles, which is >90% of the rides I do. The best out-of-the-box bike I've ever had.
Diavel: MENTAL. Goes beyond fun into excitement, adrenaline, terror. Superb bike. Not great for multi-day riding without significant farkling.
Tiger: SENSIBLE. You can use for everyday commuting to Sunday blasts to multi-day touring. A little farkling goes a long way (new screen, Rox risers). Ace.
