    Emerson - New to me Rocket III owner

    My name is Emerson i'm in the Toronto area, just picked up a 2010 rocket III touring in two tone blue, WOW with a .few performance upgrades, what a riot, as soon as the bike starts i can't get the grin off my face. one day i will hopefully remember that my speedo is in MPH instead of KMH, i keep hitting 120 and 130 on the highway before realizing it is in MPH, bummer we use Kmh, this bike is going to get me in so much trouble one day.

    I'm trying but it doesn't make it easy, I have come to realise i can beat most Mercedes, and BMW's with some effort, and kids and their rice burners are a waste of my gas but it is fun seeing the shocked looks on their faces as i have to wait for them to catch up The kids on crotch rockets are in total awe when the best they can do is chirp the tires between gears and i'm doing burn outs between first, second and third, Had some Avon Venoms to put on it, so seemed like a good way to put the metzlers to some good use before retiring them, and damn snow started flying yesterday, but supposed to warm up later this week

    Welcome to the forum. You'll note that your new medical condition is called, "permagrin." Keep the front tire down......
