    Hello
    As title just got a Rocket. I think its a Classic but unsure how to pin point the exact model.
    I am in the UK,Where Rockets come from but where you very rarely see one.
    Maybe its just me but since 2004 when they came out i had seen one on display at the NMM reception and one at a bike meet in about 2008.Including mine i have only ever seen 4 in the flesh so to speak. But better that than a Suzuki Bandit which seems to be every other bike.
    Any way thats by the by so looking forward to life on the forum.
    Ian

    Welcome Ian from Northern Ontario Canada. Glad to see you didn't purchase a belly button ride. Rockets are rare and....... FUN!
