New to the site

Went and bought a Bobber black (Matt) last weekend so Iím just saying hello !
Wanted one of these bikes since they first came out, so tempted at the launch I actually put a holding deposit down but got cold feet, after seeing this Matt one with a few extras I was sold, or rather the bike was to me.
Iíve seen a few members on here from the Kent area, Iím based in Ashford Kent if anyone is nearby.
Iím slowly reading throu the posts and getting a few ideas, be interested to hear from anyone with the Matt finish and what they use to keep the paintwork clean.
Regards
The bobstar

Congratulation on your new Matte Black! Someone just started a thread a few days ago asking about recommendations for matte finish care, so you'll run across it soon, I'm sure as you're going through the threads. What changes are you considering?

Each one matters.

To be honest I love the bike as it is, I had a few extras added by the dealer, black exhaust header pipes, black statement seat, black intake and header covers, machined headlight bezel and LED indicators.
I guess I might add the tail tidy and short front fender at some stage, but right now I just want to ride the thing !
Itís still got delivery miles only, work and the weather have played a part in not getting out on it.
The matte paintwork looks so cool but I know itís going to take more looking after than the gloss finish.

Congrats and welcome. Matte finish products are easily available. I use one, Denim something or other and it works great but, there are lots of others including those mentioned in the thread on this forum.
