I'm an equal opportunity bike lover. I've always ridden, appreciated, and loved motorcycles. Jap bikes, Harleys, Italian, Vintage. You get the picture. But sadly at an older and bigger 350lbs. and 6' 3" most bikes look and feel like toys under me now. My wife and I went to the International show in Atlanta two years ago bike shopping and she took pics of me sitting on everything. I kept wondering why she was giggling. She said "Those bikes all look so small", these were the Harleys. Fast foward, she and I are riding past a storefront in a small town last weekend. We both looked to the side and saw ourselves in the glass. What a perfect fit! This thing looked like it was made for me (Now, my wife is not a big girl, she just said, "What a pretty bike, we look good on this"). Just another reason to love the Rocket. So...I hereby declare the R3...The Official Bike for Big Fat Americans!
