Good day bobber lovers! Where to begin.... Well I've been riding for almost 9 years. First bike I purchased was a 2007 Triumph Daytona 675, red, with mods. I loved that bike sooooo much. I always called it my cheaper Ducati haha. Before I moved to San Diego I was living in Wisconsin for 3 years. As most of you know, Harley's are EVERYWHERE within Badgerland. So I needed a bike that was more comfortable to ride. In November I was looking for a Harley and I came across the Bobber Black. Holy **** I needed/wanted that bike!!! Here's what happened following: I rode 2017 Bobber in December, feel in love, down payment for the 2018 Bobber Black, January 9th Back in Black Tour in Anaheim, sold my 675 mid January, then played the waiting game.

1 month later, February 16th I picked my 2018 Bobber Black. It's been a month since the purchase and I absolutely love it. I've been smiling from ear to ear, every single day. Already had my 500 mile servicing done and I'm pushing close to 600 miles.

I was planning on getting an x-pipe(obviously for "racing only" haha), Gasser slip-ons, airbox delete replaced with cones, New Rage Cycle underseat signals and fork signals for now. Cali is **** expensive to live in so those parts will come within the next couple of months.

Speaking of Gasser Customs. I read a thread about the pipe welds and dents when customers receive the items so I'm a little reluctant to purchase them. A local '17 bobber owner has the x-pipe with Gassers and they sound really good so I'm a little torn.

I definitely don't want Zards due to the big ass label and sound. Vance & Hines sound a little weak for my taste. I saw some Voodoo pipes that look really good but haven't seen any reviews on them. I love the look of the black slip-ons(Turnout or Tapered). I don't understand why are they cheap. I hope someone can answer that for me!!

Just looking at the pics of the Voodoo pipes, you will need to either have made or purchase the 90 elbows that turns into the cat/Xpipe.

The dent was mine on the Gassers, of which Gasser is replacing. The welds are what they are in terms of appearance, have to decide if you can live with them or not. I don't doubt that they are solid welds, just not as "fit and finished" as some would prefer. Also, if you got black ones, I would imagine that you wouldn't be able to see anything that I or CaptainFrench were referencing.

glad i'm not the only one who has an issue with the zard pipes having their big oval emblems permanently attached to the sides. it takes away from the beauty of the bobber. for my tastes i don't like having unnecessary logos, etc. plastered everywhere. i would really hope that they may consider offering their pipes with a "non-logo" option.

Despite the logo, I actually really like the Zards based on everything I have seen, heard and read about them. I really like the ability to use DB killers to go from subtle, to aggressive to "holy [email protected] my ears are bleeding".

Liked them from day one, just can't stomach the price.
