I have gone from Maine to New Jersey over the past summer. I have not seen one Rocket outside the dealership. I also went to Laconia and not one Rocket other than mine...I know you are out there..Do you find Rockets as scarce as I do.
Many people approach me about the Rocket with questions. It makes the Rocket owners kind of exclusive....unllike the over abundance of other bikes. Let me know if you have ahd a similiar experience.. :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:

I have 2 agree with you. When I first bought my Rocket in '04, it seemed like I saw more of them around. Now, 2 years later rather than being more popular, they seem to be less popular. I don't really care. I like mine a lot & would do it all again in a heartbeat. However, it makes one wonder how they're selling world-wide. Always worried about them "dropping" the line. Either way, it started out as an "exclusive" bike and 3 yrs. later remains one. Fine by me ! Ride On! :hammer:

Tri Al I to like have a bike that is not as common as HD or any other lager quantity bike. Uniqueness is a good thing. Heck I have an 05 graphite R3 which is even more unique...

I went to a british bike show in CT this summer and there was mine and one other. I went to the Vanilla Bean in Pomfret CT and thought I would be the only one, and no, there was another just like it. I went to the open house this fall at the Moto Guzzi dealer in Windsor CT, and there was another. Not many around, but I do see a few.

i rode with the wife to a local tourist spot. 65 mi . from home . we parked next to a pair of blk 2006 rockets. last month i went to a local supply house and parked next to a guy on a red one. they are out there. they seem to be a private group. only one guy that rides with the RAT, rides one. i have been giving it some serious thought? joe :???:

I know most of the time it seems rare to run into another rocket, atleast where I am.

There was actually one nite at Bike Nite around here about a year ago, when I counted maybe 3 other Rockets besides mine. That was the most I'd ever seen in one place at the same time, other than at a dealer! But that's what's "cool" about 'em. :)

Yea I have heard rumors of one in Mid Maine as well. I parked it in front of my house and had Harley owners stopping to look at it. May be some day they can go from a scooter to a real bike......
