    Right in the middle of my first road trip on the Rocket. 300+ miles and zero discomfort. The bike rides and handles so good for a big fat tire bike. 40mpg is amazing having a 2.3L engine. My wife is with me on her 2012 Spyder RT. My tune I loaded is working very good and as the miles go by it's really smoothed out.

    That's gr8 news. Wait till you do a 10 plus hours ride on the Rocket you will feel the same result.

    Super comfortable all day rider bike.

    What tune did you end up using.

    The mileage seems a little too good. Obviously you didn't open her up to a 100 enough times. :rolleyes:

    Finally, stupid ignition switch!!!

    I rode it like my Grandma would, my wife isn't a fan of me going 100!! I'll ride with the guys soon and get 28 mpg.

    It's my Tom Tom gps.
