    Had a deal that i was working out of New York city but dealer sold the bike for $12,000. Waited to long and had the rug pulled out. Stayed home today and made several offers on bikes throughout the country. To my surprise a 2017 Matt black Roadster brand new is being offered. Made cash offer and waiting on reply. Found two Rocket X's for sale but not interested. Believe the X's were both under $10,000. Low mileage on both. The closer it gets to the release of the new Rocket the better the horse trading. Have made up my mind next bike is going to be one of the same. Rocket Roadster number two.

    You already know after are conversations in Maggie Valley what am planning on doing. After much home work and reading up going to go with the 260 kit and transmission work. Along with suspension upgrades and lights. Maybe even a nice seat and paint job. Nothing that is being offered by the major bike manufactures have my interest. Looked at what is being offered in the touring market and not to impressed. To old for a sport bike and find to uncomfortable to ride even to work and back. Little voice in the head say's to it build a super Rocket. Not that Steel has influenced me at all.:unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure::unsure: Keeping No 74 as my daily ride but to build a brand new bike from the ground up would be interesting. After 40 years plus riding experience plus the knowledge gained on here figure we can build a bike from hell. Why drop $30,000 on a bike with traction control that only produces around 150 horse at the back wheel?:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: Why not buy a solid platform and throw the money where you get want you want. Ranting a bit have made up my mind. :cool::cool::cool:

    I will keep tinkering with my FLTCU.....it handles like a bike half it's weight. It gets 50mpg.....and while no Rocket....it gets you where your are going.

    Buy one that weighs half that of an R3 with 175bhp and costs under 19K ? - Traction control has an OFF button usually.
    Or there is always the H2!
