I've not ridden a Rocket either, but Hokey Smokes, can I confirm that it feels a LOT lighter when rocking to & fro than one would expect. I was quite suprised.
I'm also a bit suprised that there has yet to be a real touring version - thinking "wingish" road boat - no faux fringe saddlebags, PLEASE!. Perfect motor to be cloaked - if you get my drift...and the perfect powerband for hauling around all that cloaking, wife, dog, Uni-Go trailer and kitchen sink. (on the other hand, any mfg that does what I think outta be done is crazy)
Are we all over fringe yet? Is fringe the motorcycle cliche dou jour of the day yet?
