Spotted 1 coming off the ferry for last years TT festival but none over for the Classic
50 miles North of Dallas puts you about 20 miles out to sea close to the Moray Firth!It's rare to see a Triumph, much less a Bobber 50 mi north of Dallas. It could be that the Bobbers are being used as living room art in the cities, much like the advertisements make them out to be.
I was called by my dealership today to say that my Bobber Black has arrived and did I want to come and have a look. When I got there my salesman kept on saying your lucky you ordered it when you did or you would have been waiting for some time to get one. He then mentioned that I was the first to get mine through them.I saw 2 this weekend.
One Saturday morning which, I think, may have been Jack Lilley's rusty bobber custom as it looked brown. I was in the car at the time, so didn't signal or anything.
Then, on Sunday morning, I saw the Number 59 Jack Lilley custom on the road to Hampton Court. As I was on my bike, I gave a jaunty wave and got a nod back.
I had ordered mine over the phone in Dec. 2016. Mine was the 1st one to arrive at the dealer. They had to quickly put a "sold - do not sit on" sign on it. They told me I was the 1st to order it, but after that they had received more orders.I was called by my dealership today to say that my Bobber Black has arrived and did I want to come and have a look.

Odd I thought as he has told me 6 weeks ago when I put the order in that I needed to hurry because so many had placed an order already.
I know he was only doing his job and truth be told I didn’t need selling to at all... I’d already made my mind up to by one. Does make me think though.... given that I’ve never seen one out on the road... are there really that many of them being sold? lol
Hé Chef,saw one today parked on a traffic island downtown Frankfurt, first one I saw out in the wild, that's outside a dealer's shop. Best selling Triumph in 2017 in Germany though, 746 units...
I met another bobber (97 model I think Frankfurt registered) on the Feldberg about 1,5 weeks ago, could be the same you saw (or could have been you), guess not , ...“62“
