Re: Triumph Kicks Off "Win a Rocket III Classic" Test Ride Sweepstakes

I test-rode a Rocket III when they first came out.

My impression was that it was like a larger, faster Valkyrie.

Unless you want to do wheelies or burnouts, you can short shift up to top gear and use that almost exclusively. I ran it down to 30 mph in top gear in traffic, and when traffic started moving again, it would take throttle without bucking.
