- 2015 Rocket 3 Roadster ABS
I finally got a Rocket 3 GT after wanting one since the introduction of the TFC back in 2019. This is actually my 4th rocket and I think I am going to hang on to this one. It is a really beautiful bike. I have now been driving it for about a month and I really hate the forward controls. Is it just me or when you get up to speed on the highway, the wind wants to blow your knees apart or your feet off the forward pegs....? I thought I would get used to it but I am really having issues. So I decided I am going to install some risers and bring the GT handlebar up and back towards me. I ordered a corbin seat with a driver's back rest and an upgraded pillon seat and sissy bar back rest. I ordered the windshield from power bronze, a company in England, what a sharp looking windshield that looks modern too. If you haven't and like windshields you should check it out. The last thing I have in mind is to install the mid controls.... I am 5' 9" and have a short 30" inseam and those forward controls are just uncomfortable. They are in the mid position from what I can tell but before I put out any more money, does anyone have any advice on putting the mid controls on the bike. I was also talking to an aluminum fabricator about making a bracket to put some highway pegs on the bike after the mid control installation. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated cause my wife is about to kill me if I spend any more money on mid controls and wind up hating it. Thanks in advance for any feedback I receive.
