I finally got the call that the rig was done and ready to pick up. Flew down to Waco, TX and Kent from Texas Sidecars came and picked me up. A little road test, final payment on one my way back to Western Colorado.
For your amusement I am posting some pics of my Rocket sidecar build here. I started last week with building a sub frame that the car will mount to. The sidecar is one that I built 3 years ago, and is currently attached to my 2002 Moto Guzzi EV.
First thing I had to do was make a new...
Just picked up a 2011 R3 to be the replacement tug for a sidecar camper set up. Will be replacing a well traveled worn out vstrom1000. The objective is not speed but torque and reliability. Am pushing a lot of air with the broad flat front end.
Any recommended sources for R3 aftermarket parts...
Hi, am a six year sidecar driver looking for a stronger bike to push my camper sidecar rig around. The current tug, a Vstrom1000 is geared down but is being pushed to its limit. Am seriously considering a Rocket 3 for this use.
Any one have experience or comments on using an R3 as a sidecar...
A quick question, does anyone know where in Australia I can get a sidecar, (may need custom made).
The wife is in a wheelchair, so I need one she can transfer into, but can't source anyone that does them for a Touring..
I'm in Shepparton, Victoria.
Thanks for the help guys..
Have been posting the odd video made from the sidecar on my 2010 Roadster. Nothing too exciting, just vids as I'm traveling. Not going hard, just doing what the Rocket does well....eating miles easily. Some from other places might like to see some Australian scenery and roads etc. There's a few...
I have just bought a nice 2005 R3 with 9100 miles on the clock. It is in excellent condition. At least that's what I think.
Aesthetically it is a 10 out of 10. Mechanically speaking, it should be fine except I have heard some weird noises when I first rode it home. The noises would...
We recently bought a 2010 Roadster and want to have a sidecar fitted. Has anyone here in OZ done this to their Rocket? We have a home made job on my old BMW K100 but the Rocket is going to require a little more serious gear. Are there any members who have done this? Seems like there are...
Those of you who have installed a sidecar to your rocket, did you change the triple trees for less trail? I've mounted a Champion Escort to my Rocket and find the steering extremely stiff! I have located a set of 5 degree raked trees that will reduce the trail from the 5.8" of a stock bike to...

Flip, just wanted to let you know that I also now belong to the "dropped my Rocket" club. Just before my trip this weekend I was turning around "slowly" in my driveway, too slow and too much lean in my gravel driveway, and down she went. No damage, except my ego took a beating. By the time I...
Hi, just came back from Triumph's event in Austria (www.tridays.com) and I saw there few Rocket III with sidecars - anyone have any idea where they got ones and the price for them? Mostly I saw ARMEC. Some pictures here...
Evening all, is there another R3T owner with a chair fitted that I could discuss experiences with oil steering dampners? I have attached a double chair a month or so ago and am puzzled with problems encountered with the dampner and leading link forks. Regards Carey
