I will introduce myself when I have the Rocket propulsion to back me up. First the VMAX must go then the Rocket will launch.

It had the stock pipes and that made it hard to hear the motor purr so I concentrated on the power more and that made my impression worst. I applaud anyone who buys one who is satisfied. It is a nice bike and the kind that can keep you out of trouble (tickets). I rolled into the parking lot and the saleman asked with a big grin well how did you like it. I looked at the the Red Rocket and said I want to ride "that one". He said sure. It was awesome. I love the way it pulls . I did a small power wheelie just by grabbing a fist full in first. My Max is about as fast but a different ride. I feel more planted on the Rocket and I think I could ride my wife on the back for short trips. That is not happening on the MAX. The deal I am looking at is an 05 Red with 8600 miles. It ran out of warranty July16th. It has alot of extra chrome,TOR pipes, 3 sets of seats, and alot of stuff that he will throw in on the deal. I am not saying anymore as I do not want any one to beat me to it.
I will keep you guys posted.
