I was told by a Triumph sales-person that they know that the Rocket could do a stoppie, I am questioning that due to the length and weight of the Rocket. What does everyone else think? Those who have tried or done one, I and I am sure others, would like to hear about it. With this size, length and weight of a Rocket motorcycle, a stoppie would be truly impressive.

Maybe on a 45 degree down-hill stop.. :) On level ground, I'm betting the weight would push the front tire into a slide before the rear tire came off the ground.. :)

No thanks, I didint think it was possible, but he swore ot me it was. He said the stunt rider for Triumph does it. I told them I saw him do it on another bike but not on a Rocket he does power wheelies etc but no stoppies.

Hey Pf

The key word in your statement was STUNT rider. Hey gets paid to hit the pavement, I have to pay when I hit the pavement. :mad:
