    So, I traded a 1999 CBR1100xx and a 2011 WR250r for a 2014 Rocket 3 Roadster about a month ago. I already miss the WR250r! I raced some hare scrambles on it and got my last performance award (ticket) for multiple wheelies on it (multiple cops, multiple wheelies, 1 ticket). I'm already shopping for another one. I'm having a blast on the R3R! Two trips to the drag strip so far. First race was a grudge event where I beat up on some extreamly modified HD's and a Yamaha Raider 1900. Second race I got humiliated by streached drag bikes but I did beat an Aprilia Tuono and a Yamaha R1! I've wanted a R3 for a long time. Tring to resist the Carpenter Racing 240RWHP kit so I will have a chance against the sportbikes. My best time so far is 7.64 @ 89mph in the 1/8 mile. Howdy Y'all from WNC.

    Other bikes are Road King, XSR900, WR250x, and CT70.
