So I rode my Bobber into work today. Was happily going about my business a few hours later and overheard two workmen talking as they were putting up cubicles:

Did you see that killer bike downstairs?
Yeah it's gorgeous, whoever has it is a lucky bas***d


So I nipped downstairs to check: yep, the Bobber's the only bike down there >:)

Bobber owners: women want us, men want to be like us.

I was riding through my local (small) town at the weekend. I turned a corner headed along keeping to the 20mph speed limit.

A family was walking toward me and the teens at the front, the ones who don't like anything without checking their phones to see if it is cool or not, blurted out 'look at that fantastic motorbike'.

They could only see the Bobber from the front but made an instant decision - the Bobber is cool!

The bike does draw some attention!

I was in a parking lot and an older gentleman drove by it and parked and I could hear him talking to his wife ..."that is a completely custom bike...."

I was on the cell phone do didn't engage in convo with him, but thought.."nope..bone stock!)

In my case I am the "older gentleman". :|

I stopped to get gas. A young guy in his 20's said, "What is that?" I told him. He gave me a fist bump. :grin2:

Similar reaction to others... I had one guy at the gas station say "there's a ton of modification in your bike, what did you do?" I replied "it's stock" (this was back when the bike first came out).

I'm pretty sure he wanted to kick my arse for being a smartass, he could not believe it was stock.

I had more or less same experience yesterday, on my way home from company I pass (almost) a known bikerpoint, (some people overhere know it as Feldberg - Taunus) sometimes when I’ve got time I, take the extra 2km and stop overthere, like last Friday...

Just sitting there next to bike, smoking some tobacco, guy coming to me asking......
Yeah, guess you get it, if not use your grey cell again, as you know it, most of us probably had same experience

„Wow, that looks old,
Still carburettors? oh no I „already“ see it injection,
So definately you changed a lot, what exactly did you do?

Obviously he was surprised by the answer: „nothing,....except for the oiler you don’t see anyway“ I just guess this „specialist“ was somewhat surprised.
