    Hi all. I'm a "mature" feller ( at least age wise that is) in my mid 60's. Been riding motorcycles since my mid teens. Other than a couple of Asian bikes I had during my mid to late teens, I've been riding Harley Davidsons. I've had Pans and a couple of Shovels in the past and now have a couple of twin cams, a 2012 Road King Police, and a real pretty 2001 Heritage Springer. Well, I had the opportunity to lay eyes on a 2015 Rocket 3 Touring a couple of weeks ago at a local dealership, and was a bit intrigued by it. The sales guy didn't seem very knowledgable about the Rocket and he wasn't able to dig up a brochure, so I googled the bike, and became more intrigued. And then, I got on Craigslist and began looking at for sale adds and photos. And then... and then.... I got really curious, and I found this site. So, I've been lurking on and off for a bit and decided to join up. Sadly I don't have any Rocket knowledge to offer, all I have is a bunch of questions. Yeah I know, typical newb LOL. So before I start asking a bunch of questions that have prolly already been answered a hundred times, I'll keep on looking here and reading.

    Thanks for listening - Willy

    Welcome from Australia. You should get answers to almost any question you can think of. Quite a few people here have both Harleys and Rockets. Ask away!

    Welcome Willy, what part of Central NY?

    I didn't add any knowledge when I joined, still haven't in fact, but they haven't given me the boot yet. :)

    Welcome from North Texas Willy!

    You should be able to find one at a very reasonable price. Buy one for fun not resale.
    Dollar for dollar might be the best used big bike value available.
