    I'm Danno and I have a 2005 red R3. Bought the beast a year ago and put 10000 miles on it so far. I live in Lincoln, Nebraska and so far as I know I am the only R3 owner here so its nice to talk to other folks about the machine. I have an auto shop and been bustin' knuckles for 25 years. My wife thinks my Rocket is a mid-life crisis but I say what crisis? When I'm ridin' life is good. Now she goes with me on the backseat almost everwhere.
    By the way I'm 45, is that mid life????????:eek:

    Welcome Danno,

    Doesn't sound like mid-life crisis to me, rather just another person who recognizes a quality bike that's not like everyone else's Vtwin.

    Life IS good when you ride a Rocket.....well put!:bch:

    Book'em Danno! Welcome to the club of Rocket ownership. Even though I am not 45 yet I sure hope it isn't midlife :).

    Now that title has two meanings for you. I've been to your fair city many times and always had a good time. I might win the prize for being the oldest R3 captain at 61 but I never had "Male Menopause" or "Mid Life Crisis"......... I just loved riding a great bike and Triumph provided me that pleasure. The real fun was buying it without having to get permission! :roll:

    Let's make a deal. You can win in football if you let KU win in basketball. Track and Field is up for grabs.

    By the way, mine's a '05 Red


    Ride Safe

    Welcome Danno,you got the the best of both worlds,the right machine with the faster color.Lets face it,you ain't midlife for 5 yrs. yet.Just inform the little lovely what you could be like without it.Trust me,at 56,golf and boating,take a lot of time and money.This machine,when used as a tool,improves time for you both,economically.Enjoy the youthfull feeling it can give you,I sure do.:D

    Piano man,

    Being that we just lost our B-Ball coach you shouldn't have much of a problem. By the way I am a musician also -Low Brass. I don't get to KC too often since they closed up the White Casltes there. Mostly just to get to KC Internatianal when I go to Mexico. Mabe I'll come down and get some BBQ on the ol' Rocket!:D
