I can't recall anyone posting about the gentleman and his wife we met in front of the Cracker Barrel on Saturday morning during RAA 2007. We all know how unusual to meet another Rocket 3 rider when you are on the road no matter where you live. We are just not normal, as much of the info found on this site can verify. We had left the Taliban 8 and went across the street to the CB to have breakfast before heading over to the Triumph Dealership across town. I believe there were at least 8 Rockets and 3 Harleys all parked in two parking spaces directly in front of the restaurant. Some of us were out front with the bikes when a couple on a motorcycle pulled into the far end of the parking lot. When the guy approached he was wearing a Triumph tee shirt, and his first words were "****, I didn't know this many Rockets existed." Turns out he was local to the Nashville area and had just bought a 2007 R/3 with the black and white paint scheme. I believe Rusty later gave him the website address before we departed. The look on his face was priceless when he and his wife walked up. In two years of riding I have only passed one other Rocket on these Virginia roads this guy finds a whole nest of them.
