Whilst out riding a few weeks back I briefly shared a set of lights with a guy who was on a Bobber, finished in Ironside paint. I said something like... “Triumph’s fastest selling bike my ar$e, I never see any others out in the wild”. I honest couldn’t hear his reply, then the lights changed to green and we were off. He was accompanied by a guy who was riding a new Speedmaster. We rode together through to Sutton Valence and then went separate ways.

Anyone on here?

Headcorn? I should be used to odd Village names. I watch Midsomer Murders almost every night. :|

I can't think of anything more fun than to ride a Triumph around Great Britain. Wish I was there.
I’m pretty sure there are plenty of folk this side of the pond dreaming of riding around States side! ;)

I too find Triumphs in general and Bobbers specifically somewhat thin on the ground where I live.

I'm in a small northern New Mexico town, 'loads' of bike here but almost exclusively Harley's. Needless to say when I park up in town I often get some interest. Often this is from older bikers many of whom still ride Harley's but have very fond memories of Triumphs from way back in the 60's or 70's, so they are often thrilled to see a 'new' one.

One wonderful really old Latino chap had some lovely memories to share from his days riding Norton's and Triumph's back the 1960's, his comment on my new Bobber was that "they 'really nailed the design on that".

There may not be many around these parts but I'm thrilled to be flying the flag so to speak.

Cheerio,

Roy

It’s intersting to learn about how things are in other parts of the world.

I have to say the reaction to my BB at cafe etc meets has been on the whole very positive. Many people walk across to have a look around it and often people hang around waiting to have a chat with me about it.

I had an old guy a little while back who shouted out of his car window at me, “that’s a credit to you Son, looking after an old bike like that” I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was two months old, so I just said in return, “cheers” :grin2:
