Who’s who?

I thought it would be fun to see if anyone wanted to post a pic with them in it so we know who we are speaking to. We are all Bobber fans. For me, I’m a first time rider at 48 years old. I bought the Bobber after doing some research and I was blown away that no one, and I mean no one, said anything negative about the bike. The only complaint was the pegs may scrap around corners if you ride them to hard. Ha. As a new rider, I had no idea what I wanted...I originally was thinking the Honda with the auto transmission! Anyhow, I am very happy with my purchase. This is me at home the day my bike was delivered pre-modifications I have done. I live on Long Island very close to New York City. I am dying to get out of the traffic on some open roads. My dream vacation would be three weeks on it cruising around Europe.

Hi Steve,

A great idea mate. Well done on your new bike, a real beauty for sure.

Here is me a couple of months back on the day I picked mine up. I'm English (as Shropshire lad) but now live in New Mexico/Arizona. I'm 54 and started riding at 17. The last of three brothers, all bikers.

Cheerio,

Roy

This is me on my bike shortly after picking it up from the dealership. This was the day my buddy and I installed the x-pipe and Gassers exhaust, so I was pretty psyched about how great it sounded after the changes. The Bobber is my first big bike, with my previous ride being a highly modified Honda Ruckus scooter that I used to ride to work in the summer.
