Reply To: Bobber side stand


Yep – I grounded mine the other day. I was chasing a dick in a BMW (so could be almost any BMW owner !!) who saw me come up behind him whilst he was dawdling and then he tried to race away. Unfortunately I forgot I was not on my R1 (don’t know why – my ankles weren’t around my ears so I should have realised) and needless to say I overdid the lean on a left-hand bend. The Bobber is not an R1, it’s not meant to be ridden like an R1, which is why I bought it and I just have to get better at ignoring racing dickheads when on the Bobber. Hopefully I’ll come up behind the same BMW dick when I’m next out on the R1 and then I can leave him in my dust !!!
