    Hello everyone my name is Marc from San Diego, CA. I've been working my way up the horsepower of Triumph starting with an America about five years ago. About three years I traded to a Thunderbird Commander and last week made the final trade up to a 2018 Rocket; I couldn't be happier. I can't ride that thing enough, it keeps begging me for more throttle but I am still in the first 500 miles so I gotta take it easy!

    Welcome to the forum. And the quest for power doesn't have to end there. There's lots of power waiting to be released in the R3 motor.

    Welcome from Australia. Change the intake and exhaust and you will speed it up significantly. Do the motor and you will scare yourself. Great fun.

    Enjoy the journey, as Bull mentioned Rocket III hp scales quite high if you’re really after it, north of 400, though not many captains have ventured there :p

    How did you like the Tbird? 1700 right?
