    Unknows When Riding a Known Road

    Alibi up front: I do realize I am preaching to the choir on this article, just relaying a thought... I ride the same 17 miles to and from work primarily on the Express Lanes of a super slab, I-95. I chew gum when I ride and when wearing an open face helmet, I know what part of the road to shut...

    Rocket Owners on the Road

    Last week I rode 1700 miles between Kalispell and Northern California. Didn’t see any rockets but lots of folks wanted to see mine. This week crossing the country in a cage. Stopped for fuel in Gillette WY. There I saw a well-used Rocket 3. Wasn’t hard to pick out the owner in the cafe. Met...

    First road test on the Chariot with new leading link forks fitted!

    Did 85 miles with my son Peter on Saturday on a nice windy route from Glasgow, Scotland to Callander and back. New forks are a great success. Before it felt like a workout. Definitely need a roll bar. Big thumbs up to (Paul) Lumley Engineering.

    Road Spray 2.5L 3 R

    My pillion is being deluged by road spray. Clearly the rear hugger/mudguard arrangement is inadequate. Anyone else noticed this?

    Because this forum has world wide reach, and some of us are riding everyday. I thought it would be good to start a thread on general safety. Here we go with a message from the West Bury Constable: Feel free to add any safety related message, video or poster.

    Canadian Road Suggestions--Ontario to New Brunswick

    Here's a winter project for our Canadian rocketeers--and any others who know some good roads up there--in Ontario, Quebec, or New Brunswick. Can you suggest some good twisties in any of those provinces, places to head to next summer? I've seen plenty of pictures of good looking roads in...

    First road trip

    Right in the middle of my first road trip on the Rocket. 300+ miles and zero discomfort. The bike rides and handles so good for a big fat tire bike. 40mpg is amazing having a 2.3L engine. My wife is with me on her 2012 Spyder RT. My tune I loaded is working very good and as the miles go by it's...
