I'm beginning to like these as much as the Harleys

Thom,
The dealers both in the USA and Canada are selling them like hot cakes....they are never in the show room long enough.

The Rocket III is one large bike - in the cc war, this one is king! I saw a cafe version of this bike - it looked awesome!

Lance...not sure why a motorcycle would need such a huge engine...doesn't appeal to me ...a bike the size of yours is ideal for everything...you have me sold on this...matter of time now.
My mind is made up

Triumph made some funny videos when they first came out with these. They are worth looking up.
