    That's not covered by Honda?

    By the way I think the Raider is hot but not sure if it's the bike for you. I could see you on the new Rocket Tourer

    I went to the Triumph website and checked them out - NOW DADDY LIKES THE Rocket III Tourer set up.

    It has one pipe on each side and takes away from the "lopsided" look that I didn't like about the Rocket.

    YES, I rode it 150 miles... Nice road test. I like it better then the M109. Plenty of power. At about
    125 it was stable and smooth. Seating was good for me. Bars were ok, no real leaning
    forward. Bike I tested had the performance pipes. Sounds Great. Brake felt good.
    Forward controls work good and were comfortable . Felt good in the twistie we have
    around here
    Only down side was I would have to get use to down shifting all the time.
    Going around a cornor
    you need to be in second or sometimes first....
    I think they have a winner.......
    I liked it alot.............

    Thats the Touring, not the Tourer, which is the Classic Rocket with windscreen and soft saddlebags. The new Touing has new hard bags, new frame, single headlight, twin pipes, narrower tires, and way less horsepower. I'll stick with my basic Rocket.



    Currently own a 2007 Triumph Rocket III, 2006 Triumph Speed Triple, a 2004 NRX1800 Valkyrie Rune, a 2002 GL1800 Gold Wing, a 1998 Valkyrie Tourer, a 1988 CBR1000 Hurricane, and my wife's 2005 VTX1300R and 2004 VT750C Shadow Aero.
