Honestly, I didn’t really want to like it. The custom bike guy in me revolted when I heard that Triumph named its new model the Bobber. "How original," I thought. After all, a bobber is a bike that is “bobbed” from stock, right? It would be like H-D releasing a new bike called the Chopper. It just seemed absurd. Despite my petty beef with the name, I hopped on a plane to Madrid to test it out, while trying to keep an open mind. After logging a few miles and really getting a chance to dissect the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber, it has exceeded all of my expectations. The only real problem I have, is that now I have to tell everyone how much I love a production bike called a Bobber. Don’t worry, I’ll get over myself eventually.
