The adventure starts! I just turned 40 and decided that I needed to find a new hobby. I purchased the BB as my very first motorcycle to ever own. I spent many hours researching different brands and models (Harley and Indian) yet kept coming back to the BB as the bike to own without regrets.

I am very excited to be part of this forum and itching to see what others have done with modifications.

Thanks!

Have owned the former (HD) and currently own the second (Indian Scout) but, my Bobber is my go-to for day trips and around town. Congratulations on your purchase, welcome to the forum. Might want to ease into the revs until you’re used to it. There’s a lot of torque in that machine. Ride safe.

If only I had enough money to purchase all three ...... The Scout was my second choice and the 48 for my third (the 2019 48 did not come in a matte finish). Such a tough decision between the three. I loved how mean the BB looked yet how sad it was sitting in the showroom. It was screaming for me to take it home.

Raleigh! My old stomping grounds. (Used to live in Wake Forest.)

Welcome to the forum. You picked a great bike!
Thanks! I live right on Falls Lake so I ride everyday through Creedmoor, Franklinton, Youngsville, and Wake Forest. I'm not venturing into high traffic areas yet so the rural settings are a perfect match to learn and get comfortable on.

I would like to hear your story sometime!
I turned 50 at the start of the year and always wanted to own a bike (my Dad rode Triumph's, Nortons and Hondas....then I came along). I took some lessons, passed and then eventually, purchased the Bobber Black, after much searching reviewing etc. I was told NOT to go for a "first" bike, but go for the bike that I wanted. The BB was that bike.

I'm almost 2 months in and 1500 miles clocked. Love it.

I bought my first motorcycle when I was living in Wake Forest. I rode to all of those places and more back in the day.

By the way, Falls Lake was just starting to fill when I lived in Wake.

Very similar story. Grew up around HD but never really played with the idea of owning a motorcycle until recently. I was told the same, go for the bike that excites and makes you want to ride everyday. Very cool!

Welcome to the group and congratulations on your purchase! Do you have any changes in mind for your bike yet?
Not at the moment. I found this forum on my search for ideas on how to make the BB unique to me. Definitely white wall tires once I shred these bad boys. :wink2:

That's crazy. It's completely different now. If you haven't been back for awhile you wouldn't recognize this place!
