So the big day has finally arrived when I get to collect my brand spanking new Bobber Black... however I’m just sat here at the moment waiting awkwardly for the money that I’ve transfered to land in their account... tick toc tic toc tic toc!

First world problems are real folks :grin2:

Thanks for all the comments chaps!

Well I’ve just returned after a little 2 hour detour en-route home and what can I say... except for holy sh!tballs that was fun!!!

The bike looks fantastic and sounds so much better than I thought it would with the V&H. I kept stopping for coffee along the way just so I could stand and purv over it! :surprise:

Handling is in another league compared to the old Bonnie T100 we have. So much sharper and willing to turn-in but most of all I’m really surprised by the ride of the Fox rear shock. So much more compliant than the standard shock making for a luxurious riding experience by comparison.

The weather could have been a little nicer. It seemed to not be raining at first but once up to 30 mph and beyond the drizzle was apparent but still not capable of dampening my enthusiasm for the first ride!

If anyone is on the fence about buying one I suggest you climb on down off of that fence and get on with it... you really don’t know what you’re missing!!! :grin2:

I have returned to biking after many years with my Bobber.

The thing that gets me is that I am still enjoying my rides hours after the event. I thought it was just because of the time gap since I last rode a bike but it looks as though it's you guys as well :D

Commo - still no pics? Let's see it!
Sincere apologies for the lack of pics so far... I literally haven’t stopped riding it! :D

It’s been a little wet so I’d already managed to get it caked in mess so I’ve just spent a couple of hours cleaning and detailing it and giving it a good coating of acf50. Next job is to sort the garage out but in the meantime here’s some pics... when I get a chance I’ll take some decent one’s in a nice setting etc.
