Hi
new here but not new to these kinda bikes....have had 3 Harleys (loved them all) but had an urge to get Sport bikes out of my system so bought a Ducati Streetfighter (should have kept that) and then a Triumph 765RS, but now realise I'm not as fast as I like to tell myself I was.

Congrats & welcome to the forum.
The way I usually ride it, I find the relaxing pace of the Bobber therapeutic and it’s torque absolutely fantastic. The thought of having another streetfighter/sport bike is long gone.

Clip ons are (relatively) cheap and easy to install should you get the itch for a more sporty and focused riding position. Moving the seat forward will also put more weight over the front, should you feel it necessary.

Looking forward to seeing your new ride. A number of us here (and some still do) rode HDs before going to a Bobber. The torque and responsiveness are addictive as is the style. You may never look back. Oh, yes you will, at least every time you park it. ?. Not sure why getting a Bobber is going “back to the dark side” though, unless of course you’re getting a Bobber Black ?. Either way, congrats and enjoy the ride.

“dark side because all my mates wouldn't look twice at these kinds of bikes”, I sold my BMW K 1200 and my Ducati 999 to buy my Bobber, some of my riding buddy’s thought I was nuts, nobody I rode with had a Triumph, old man bike they said.I reminded them I,m a old man and then just kept my mouth shut. They all came around after a few rides. Now one in the group has bought a T-120

Hi Folks,

Some very interesting thoughts shared here. I think for me the Bobber just has a sweet spot, it's certainly not the biggest, fastest, most comfortable etc. but does seem to have a balance of all that one would want from a motorcycle. If one is really into touring, off road, racing etc. there are of course bike that do it better but for a good old fashioned motorcycle riding experience, I think this little Triumph is hard, nay impossible to beat..:grin2:

I've said it before and I will say it again; I've had some cracking bikes in my life but I simply have NEVER enjoyed riding one as much as this.

Cheerio,

Roy

Hey Diver! Welcome!

I did Harley's in the past, and always liked them, just something about the V-twin sound appeals to the Lizard part of my brain. :grin2:

I now have Both. The Triumph is absolutely my go to for most things! I love riding it, its way more fun than it should be! :laugh:

My Harley is great too, but it's a different kind of ride.

I suspect you will not be disappointed with your choice!!

In the same boat as you, i am currently on a 2016 DucatI Multistrada and hope to pick up my 2019 Black this coming weekend, I have always loved the look of the Bobber since its launch, and feel now I dont mind slowing the pace down a bit, my wife rides a 2017 T120 black so getting this just makes sense to me, i cant wait.......I hate to say nor can the wife she would not ride the Multistrada, but has pre warned me her leg will be going over the Bobber.
