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...
This map was shared by @warp9.9 to @vindex1963 for his bike. The bike was subsequently dyno'd.
2006 Classic, Ram Air, cat bypass, homebuilt mufflers, 20222_2SA base tune
Custom dyno tune Power Commander-V
CANNOT be used on ROADSTERS or Touring
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!
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...
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!
Gidday everyone, I ride a 2007 Rocket 3 Classic that i've had since new. Its got over 90000 klm on it, mostly open road klms as I prefer riding that. For around town riding I have a Vespa 300 scooter that is a perfect town bike. After the last two years servicing my Rocket hasn't been running...
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.
Could Your Car Be Responsible For Your Next Data Leak?
My 2013 Roadster should be safe (I think) but I'm not too sure about my Explorer as it has...
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.
I'll post the link and have a look for yourself
OEM Models - Triumph
For example for a roadster:
T2501231 INSTRUMENT ASSEMBLY, KPH ALL YEARS 1 Normal price $1280.05 1 only $249.99
these are Canadian dollars.
Hope someone finds this useful!
Went to the Manchester Bike Show on Saturday and my mate bought his 18 year old son along for a look in the hope he would get into bikes one day.
So, making use of the lad, we sent him off to get the coffees while we mooched. Half an hour later he finds us, commenting "Though it would be easy...
As much as I am reserved towards hipsters, I must say I like the new 1200 Triumph Scrambler. I consider it The Ultimate Hipster Toy for 2019 :)
Recently introduced Speed Twin tells me that Triumph is really on top of motorcycle design these days. At least in this category.
I spent the day cleaning 2 of my bikes. The first is my 1993 honda ntv650 that I got a few weeks ago which the previous owner added a fairing to and lots of panniers and boxes and stuff for doing long distance touring. When I got the bike it was mostly green and mouldy as it had been sitting for...
