... And the Rocket's (III) Red Glare ...

This is a late post, in fact it is from 2008 Spring Daytona Bike Week. A riding buddy of mine sent me these pictures a while back and I just looked at them. A couple of us were able to test ride on the Triumph ROCKET III. The Rocket III, with its fuel injected, three cylinder, twelve-valve 2,294cc powerplant giving 147ft lbs of torque at 2,500rpm, is officially the world’s largest capacity production motorcycle. It looks and feels like a real beast, and it fells pretty wide. But it is smooth and refined with some real get up & go in its stock form. Triumph says that no production bike can beat it in 0-60, even the Hayabusa, Honda VTX or Harley V-Rod!!
