hi lads and lasses.....currently own a Triumph rocket 3 roadster and just sold my goldwing that the wife and i used to travel everywhere on but due to back issues, she is unable to ride pillion anymore.
about 7 years ago my gsxr1000 went for service and i had a b king for the day...i vowed i would get one as soon as possible.....yesterday that day arrived!!!! '08 with 11k on the clock with a few extras including two brothers carbon end cans. rode it back from buxton and loved every minute of it. not a lot in it power wise between the rocket and the b-king but loved how nimble it was. keeping the rocket for now but dont want 2 bikes so will see what happens over the summer.

Never thought id find a bike to replace the rocket.....

Hello and welcome cheers

I have never ridden nor seen a Triumph Rocket in reality, but I always admired this bike in the motorcycle press. Especially loved the cherry red coloured one cherry .

If you have any pictures of the bikes, please share geek

the Rocket is an awesome bike, and I had a chance to ride a Goldwing back from Florida a couple years ago....you will never want to sit on another imposter after the Bking......

The bike looks cool and the sound of the TBR pipes is really mean. I miss it a lot... though, it was really hard to bare during the longer runs alien

Tails painted his bike several times, so he has plenty experience with the different hues and saturation along with their direct effect on the power gains, photon particle accumulation and the reduction of friction.

Hi Rizla King, thanks for the warm welcome mate, ill give you a heads if i get out and about :-)
my brothers wedding late may 23-26 but if it doesnt conflict i am up for the meet.

i have been riding rockets since 2008 and never had a bad one yet.....my first was an '08 i traded in after 28 months with 37k miles on the clock.....needless to say we did some miles on that one.
the rockets does have a few known faults on the 06-07 plated bikes but triumph honored the faults outside warranty no matter what year.
i used to be the membership sec of the r3oc gb so i got to learn about the bike and its faults.
never thought i would ever say id get rid of the rocket but now with the wife not being able to go pillion i am thinking the king is all i need :-)
