Triumph’s new Bobber takes the factory custom bike to a new place. BikeSocial takes it (and a Harley) to Norfolk...
127 miles into a 130-mile ride home from Norfolk I start making a list. The five things even less comfortable than riding a Triumph Bobber for 130 miles.
- Riding a horse for 130 miles
- Riding a mountain bike with flat tyres on gravel for 130 miles
- Being dragged along a cobbled road on a rope tied to the back of a Transit van for 130 miles
- Er, that’s it. I can’t think of anything else less comfortable than riding 130 miles on a Bobber. Unless you count ‘riding 140 miles’ on one, which would definitely be worse.
