Hey all, bought my 2013 R3R last winter. Was a former honda shadow sabre owner. I thought that thing was fast, its was nothing! I test road this thing and nailed the throttle like my old bike and I barely had a hold of it. If it wasn't for the ridge on the back of the seat holding me in place I'm sure I would of stayed in place as the bike shot out from under me like an old cartoon. Anyway, been on these forums for awhile now just figured its about to sign up. Winter is coming and I will be looking for mods and upgrades to keep me busy.

Howdy. Jack Ryan here. Just wanted to learn a little about the Rocket III. Kind of interested in them, they look cool and got a big power plant. That is about the extent of what I know about them.

The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

Got this message to "introduce myself". I can't remember how long I've been on this site. Maybe related to old fart syndrome... Been riding and mostly repairing Brits since Lucas. Called most of the western US home at one time, Wyoming at present(won't claim California) Currently riding a Rocket 3 touring and missing my 05 classic. Have a couple other Triumphs in the stable but that's another story. Active in the American Legion Riders, R3 owners and Salt Lake URAT.( need new Rocket Captains in Utah!) Always available for an unbiased opinion on western travel.
