I dont know what came over me. I just traded in my Triumph ST for a 2006 Rocket 3. It's like taking off on appollo 13.

I'll let u know how it goes. I only have 12 miles on it :!:
I would like to know what you think of this machine. Handling, maintenance, workmanship etc compared to Nortons and triumphs that you have had experience with.
Triumph Rocket 3

I am impressed with the Rocket!

Now nearly 6000 miles on it. I have changed the rear shocks to progressive and changed to a Corbin seat. I have the Triumph Rocket 3 bags.

It is comfortable, fast, stops well and for what it is handles very well. It was definately designed to be ridden.

I ride 40 miles round trip for work daily on it.

The best thing is the low down torque, so I can power or if need be chug along in second. In top gear at just under 4000 revs its doing 90 MPH.

I have somehow perfected riding through traffic on it. I didnt think I would be able to due to its sheer size, but it is very nimble!
