    I have a Thunderbird Sport. No I have not been out on it since 2014. The Rocket is just so much fun.

    I know the Rocket is fun in fact I am one of the original owners of a Rocket but guys if you have more than one bike ride them all or sell some, I have six bikes and yes those Rocket does get ridden the most but all the bikes get the pleasure of my arse on a regular basis.
    Where I live I can ride 365 days a year so that does help.

    Thanks for the responses. The Bird was going to be my only bike. It had/has the look, torque, handling and brakes to make a great all around Cruiser/Tourer. About six months after the TB, I got the Rocket! Everything Changed.

    Had I known what I know now I would have a Standard and a Tourer. The TB seems to be difficult to sell. I gave up actively trying to sell mine. There's one dealer that has had one going on a year. I'd love to keep it but it's not being ridden enough so like you said, sell it. And get another Rocket:D

    Andy, I will remember you have this. In about 8 months, once settled into Miami, we're going to upgrade my wife to a TBird most likely. Before I buy something I will check in to see if you have sold it yet.

    No she rides an 1100 Honda Shadow. Since her hip replacement she only rides pillion. She needs lighter and the Bird is heavy even though it feels light.
