    There's a short article about it on page 14, in the December issue of "Motorcyclist"!

    You know I'm exactly the opposite. If it needs a parachute I DON'T want to ride it!

    Insane things are being done with the Rocket 3. There is so much potential in that beast of a motor, which is already insanely powerful.

    We took the beast to Ft. Lauderdale a few weeks ago, and sweet lord, that torque was wonderful doing top gear passes from 40-50 mph up to 90. At those speeds, the sound of the motor changes to an angry growl. Quite nice actually.

    There is a company called "Carpenter Racing" that does several stages of mods to the R3; then they have the audacity to call it "ridable on the street", they probably should add "barely".

    You do realize that your bike's motor is more like an auto's rather than a motorcycle's.

    My car is a 2.2L and the R3T is a 2.3. Personally I think it's a rather unattractive engine, but the darn thing can't tell the difference between a solo rider and 2up fully loaded. It still accelerates like a angry mamma bear on steroids...

    Here's where disagree again, I like the way your bike looks and I also like the way the engine looks.
    There's a unique brutality that is, in my opinion, difficult to find fault.
    I may not want to ride one 24/7, but I sure do like looking at it.
