    Thought I would say hello and introduce myself again.

    Having owned 2 Rocket III Roadsters, I had a brain fart and went elsewhere for a bit, Tiger Sport, Bonnie Scrambler, B-King, BMW S1000XR, BMW R1200RS (Bloody awful bike, like riding a tractor) but all the time I missed the Rocket.

    SO, I bought another, still have the 1200RS but bought a CAT N write off (cosmetic damage, supposedly) and am in the process of getting it back on the road.

    So far it has been easy fixes, headlight, gear lever, clutch lever, exhaust, bear claw, electrics to tail light for some reason, the usual.

    But I have one stumbling block, the radiator (see post elsewhere).

    Bike is a 2013 Roadster and has done just under a 1000 miles from new, it is almost mint, well it will be.

    So, hello, I am back :)

    Welcome back timbo. I was on coparts the other day looking at a wrecked roadster with the carpenter sidewinder pipe on it undamaged. Bet the bike goes for about the price of the pipe. Both bikes I looked at had good looking radiators.

    Do you mean Coparts? there was a Rocket III went a couple of days ago, may have been yesterday, went for over £2K as the chap down at Triumph'ant was bidding and dropped out when it went past £2K.

    Yes I fixed my fumble finger typing :) sorry I had the phone turned wrong so the screen didn't show you were out of the country. Truth be known I'd have bid on the but since I have three rockets laying around me thinks the wifey would be scratching her head. Easy fix though you just need a TTS stage 2 kit.
