Greatest Bike ever!!!
By Jonathan Lankford(Owner), Jan. 15, 2009
I have a 2005 Triumph Rocket III. I have rode many different sizes of bikes. I've rode sport bike and cruisers and this bike if by far my favorite. More horsepower and torque than most will ever need. Great handling at all speeds. And will always catch eyes and turn heads. Not many of them on ... Read Full Review

Rocket III 5 Stars!
By robert lehman(Owner), Oct. 3, 2008
At over six feet tall I needed a big bike. I found it in the Triumph Rocket III. The bike has over 2300 cc's, torque and horsepower for days, not to mention a cool look that never fails to turn heads. The dual headlights, big six gallon fuel tank and the wide rear tire are some of the features that ... Read Full Review

Rocket three commuter!
By Barzeen Vaziri(Owner), Oct. 2, 2008
I traded in my Sprint 1050 to get this bike. I opted in to a Jardine full system, bags, dresser bars, windshield etc... I have put in three weekends on the bike logging no less than 500 miles each weekend and I am still amazed with this thing. As soon as you think about cracking the throttle you're ...
