I'm curious about the type of rider we have here on the forum and Bobber riders in general. In my case, I've been riding for MANY years. The bobber is my 20th motorcycle purchase.
0And I thought 20 was a milestone, 50, wow!
I see your point and I should have worded the selections better. The limit of the length of the various selections kind of threw me with the wording. What I was getting at is bike ownership in general.Maybe the option for the person who replaced their only bike for a bobber and they have had that bike for numerous years could have made for a slightly better voting answer?
The Bobber replaced a previous bike within a month - of release?? or I only owned the previous bike for 1 month.?
The Bobber replaced a bike in 2 to 11 months -- is this from release of the bobber, OR the previous bike I owned was 2-12 months old.
I personnally own 2 bikes, and the bobber came into the stable about 6 months after release. And the bike that left the stable was with me for 4 years.
So far anyway, no one has voted that the Bobber is their first bike.I've been riding since 12, turned 60 this year. Too many bikes to recall a number but I'll just go with a lot.
I don't own the Bobber but I'm in the market for the Speedmaster, we'll see how that plays out shortly.
After being a member here for several months it appears to me there are many on this forum that are first time riders.
It seems obvious to me but I could be way off base.
Again, my 1st purchased street bike is the Bobber, but not "my first bike" as in "new to riding" I have ridden a handful over the years not owned by me.To those that have voted, I thank you.
To those that have not, if willing, tell me why you haven't. So far, 234 views and only 23 votes?
Sorry if the questions are unclear but I'm just interested in prior bike ownership. And it doesn't need to be street bike, I consider dirt bike owning/riding as owning.
I'm a little surprised that not one person has the Bobber as a first bike.
Well PFEN, since I'm 62 now I don't think I'll have time to catch up to your number of bikes. I started in the mid 1970s but I threw money at other toys too, cars,women, boats, PWC, women...
