A used BB is a great bargain as most Bobbers have had some work done by owners so you may be able to save not only on the MSRP but also on the mod costs. These aren’t sports bikes so you don’t have to worry much about hooliganism. Just be forewarned that the temptation to customize them is strong.

So immediately after that I signed up for the MSF basic rider course, got my license just last week and now here I am...

Always been drawn to Triumph's in general but the BB has been calling my name ever since I saw one. Considering picking up a used 2018 and was just wondering if there's anything particular I should be checking for when looking and test riding these bikes.

Have a couple in my area both under 2k miles. Any feedback is appreciated!!
Mike, per @Jalaan ’s reference, just saw that @BearJu still has his Bobber for sale. It’s a steal. Check out the thread in the Active Topics section.

It is in fact still for sale. I actually bought from Gold Coast which was an ok experience. Dealing with the mechanics there is a whole other thing.

Lots of upgrades.

Appreciate the warm welcome.

I'm going to sit patient until I come across a good deal but will definitely keep everyone updated.

BearJu - bike looks super clean! Would definitely be interested but pretty much had my mind set on the BB.

Whatever works for you my man. Although other than the front tire I donít think thereís much of a difference between the two haha, maybe a couple other black pieces.
