My name is Raymond Braswell and I live in Kansas City, Missouri. I have ridden a variety of Triumph's since I was 14 including one I kept and restored, a 1968 Triumph TR6 Trophy Model. I purchased my Rocket III last winter and have been riding constantly since it turned warm. In two weeks I am riding with my 'Harley' buddies to Sturgis for the first time. It took me about 6 months to really get comfortable with this beast at high speeds in turns, but now I am one with this incredible machine. Need to install a gas gauge vs. the idiot light, and not real happy with the leather bags. But other than that I love this bike. Anyone else with a Rocket riding to Sturgis?
