Yeah, but Harley sells more posercycles than all the other manufacturers combined.

You are crazy, I ride a rocket, I test rode all those bike except the HD and the Rocket does handle as well if not better then most of these, I rode the Vulcan it was like pushing a snowplow through sand, the M109 was dragging the pegs much sooner then the rocket would.

Default You're Assuming...

We know what happens when we assume, no?



The dyno runs we video aren't necessarily the ones we are recording for peak power. We run the bikes to their rev limiters, believe me, and we do the run several times, until power starts to decline.



Also, once again, we'd like to remind you and all our readers that getting bike is sometimes beyond our control. Triumph doesn't have a Rocket III Classic demo bike this year, just the Tourer.

Ok I don't hate you as much now I know you tried to get a Rocket. Thank you for your efforts in trying to get the true Godzilla and to be fair in the evaluation. I take back my statement that you all should be fired and made to work at Mcdonalds.

Sounds like MO's new "Parent Company" is actually willin' to shell-out the Big Bux.



Hell, wasn't there a time when the MO bogs used "Badger's Arse" wipe? Now, I bet they're even springin' for "Angel Swarf".
