  • i couldn't help myself...

    2008 triumph rocket 3 with 23k on the clock, brand new avon cobra tires front and rear, upgrade 2 up seat with back rests front and rear (triumph) the bags are thick leather and triumph as well...floorboards, windshield, some other minor bits all triumph...i have all the stuff that came off the bike when new...did i say one owner...it handles like a dream and the brakes are great...a metric shit ton of power...two pics with accessories off in one up arrangement...the paint is perfect but the whole thing needs a good cleaning...it will come into the den after everyone leaves after the first of the year and i'll clean the bejesus out of it...original mirrors still in box...i like it...zing of the road...

    It looks so bad ass solo. So, what was the damage? Inquiring minds want to know.

        Might be a loose nut behind the handlebars.

      No, Z, when I asked what's the damage, I meant the damage to your wallet. How much did you pay for it?

        less than i paid for either the 07 or 08 roadstar, no shade on the roadstars or my ability to sniff out a good deal, but i stole this one...law enforcement followed me home...i won't own two bikes during the summer so the competition between the rocket and cbr will be intense...my hands are starting to cramp up when i ride the cbr hard so it may be time to move on into the long sweeper of old age...

        Just smart business when your buying & selling. Sometimes depending where you live there is a limit to transactions without a dealers license. Just cause your a dirty old man does not mean your stupid, lol.

        RC51 is one of my wanted bikes just to have in the collection if/when money is no object for sure.

        I just built a nice shop so room isn’t an issue for me. But money is for sure, lol.

        I know Bubba. I’ve checked that out on your website more than a few times. I would love to have that on display in my shop. If I win the lottery, you’ll be one of the first to know, lol.

          Former coworker had a Rocket 3. It would do torque wheelies all day.
          I think he said he did a 13 mile wheelie on it from Fort Atkinson to Janesville on Hwy 26.
          LOL

            bk...i don't do wheelies on my cbr on purpose, sure as sheit not going to on the rocket...i catch air on the cbr from time to time by accelerating at the apex of rises but again, not intentionally...i have seen videos of guys doing wheelies on the rocket but i'm sure they are not only much younger but have deeper pockets than i do...plus my bones would crumble like a bag of old pretzels if i went over...i had it out for a short ride today, the acceleration is incredible for a 800lb bike...it handles very nicely...zp...

                i have to back and forth it into it's resting place in the garage and have no problems, would be easier if it were an inch or two lower but i'm not changing it...i haven't put 20 miles on it yet as i purchased it after the snow started flying...did some turn arounds at intersections and the bike is very manageable...
