newbie with a rocket

When i first started shopping for bikes, the one i wanted most was a Speedmaster, but for reasons of features and price, i settled for a kawa vulcan 900 classic. Literally the entire time i owned the bike, i dreamed of one day getting a Rocket III. This fall i got a new job making a bit more money and i took the opportunity to get the end-of-season promo financing and buy my rocket.

I've only been riding for 2 years and it's a tremendously powerful machine for a newbie, but i am hopelessly in love with my big british juggernaut and i regret nothing. I can't wait to meet more triumph lovers here and paricipate in some rides!

2 years is a good amount of time, you've been riding enough to where you'll hopefully comprehend what a step up the Rocket is.

Just take your time in exploring what the behemoth can do and gauge traffic carefully since the beast will not be as nimble as the Kawi, but will have a sledgehammer of power instead.
