    Another header for 2020+ bikes

    Looks like Carpenter is close to producing a different header for our beloved Rockets. They say it is a "3 into 2 into 2 into 1 header" and named it the "TXL". Doesn't look too bad if ceramic coated and equipped with heat shields. Not too promising for the GT model though.

Current checklist: speed, cruise control,shaft drive,hard bags, good suspension and handling ( not over 700lbs), comfortable both long and short distance, dependable...

    Why can't our bikes be made of this steel?

    Very entertaining embedded video! :cool: Hardox 400 https://www.ssab.com/products/brands/hardox/products/hardox-400 Not sure I'd need to upgrade to Hardox450 then. ;)

    Fort Nine's list of best used bikes

    Well dang, Triumphs bikes didn't make his list. But I do agree about the Honda XRs and I have a Star now that really does make the grade it seems. Yet somehow I can't help but think the mighty Rocket III should be on his list. Cost-wise, the used market is great and the reliability is not bad...

    Torque difference between bikes

    Wondered what others observed on this subject. My honda vtx 1800, when you accelerate, it would throw you back as it propelled you forward. On this rocket, no throwing back, just forward. Have you noticed this, and if so what is the explaination? Is it 2 cylinder vs 3? Thanks in advance!

    Boog's bikes; a Short Novel.

    Our new brother @Larry_M gave me an idea with his introduction thread; our bike history. This new idea cost me close to a day of typing my story and I want to share it here now. This was quite the challenge for me. I found two different lists of bikes I have started over the years and while...

    These Bikes Are Dangerous!

    Truck pulling up next to me with his gal, window open arm out with thumbs up sign smiling almost slammed into the car in front of him at a stoplight. Next light he said that was quite a compliment I gave you huh? Attention grabbers, like a good looking woman in a skirt standing on a corner!

    Hacking our bikes

    Some of you may read articles from "pc.matic". Should we be concerned about our bikes being hacked as it is certainly concerning reading this article.

    Wheelbase on new Bikes

    So I found out this weekend that the wheelbase on the new bikes is 66 inches. What do you make of that? I may have some new report about how it sits for riders of different stature if your interested. My dealer did sit on one.
