Oh ffs!!
How many bobbers are designed for two up riding and touring like you seem to think they are?!!
Modern stuff like this isn't for hardcore rigid tailed cobble it together in the shed bikers. It's for posers for pissing about for a few hours in the sun or bar hopping.
And for THAT, it's not a bad looking bike!

No. You missed the point.
The photos so far of the ' new' TBA mule on test suggest it's based on the bobber....and if so, it'll be far too small for those of us in the market for a 1200 TBA...given that we want it for the extra grunt for two up touring
That was what I was farkling on about

8000 Mile test of the Bobber.
MCN 8000 Mile Bobber review.

I Decided some time ago its not for me, To much money to spend on a bike with limited use and after viewing it a bit small as well. I think the new Speedmaster thats based on Bobber chassis will also be not for me either as I expect it to be even more cash. Keeping my 07 America for as long as I can foresee.

A reasonably harsh review considering all these reviews try to show the bikes in their best lght.The has been comments on the durability of the finish of the T120 and Bobber before.I had a 1974 Sportster as my only transport and the small tank does become a pain quickly.Looks great but filling up every second day wasn't fun.
