Well, I made the mistake of riding a Rocket 3. My buddy came over so that I could take some pics of his ride. He has been trying to get me to ride it since the lone star rally. I keep telling him some other time. Due to he has a car tire on the back. (just doesnt like right).. Well, At first was really awkward, One really has to push hard to get the bike to turn. While I am still not crazy about the tire thing, the power and torque was more than I ever expected. You truely are on a rocket... My meanie is still new with 700 miles on her. I know I will take a loss if I trade her in. Best bet would be to selll it out right. The downside is that triumph has no local dealers. Austin,Houston, are the closest dealers to me. Has anyone else here gone thru a similiar experience?
