    Smile New to R3, been riding long time

    Not only new to R3, not much of using computer for forums and stuff. Not a Luddite mind you, just have to spend so much time on computer at work, don't really do it for fun. Been riding over 50 years. Stable includes the recently purchased Rocket 3 Touring, 2013. I also ride a 2013 Victory Hardball and a 2003 Triumph Tiger 955i. Current restoration project is a 1969 BSA 441 Victor Special. Pretty much love anything with a motor and two wheels. And speaking of motor, the R3 is an absolute blast to ride. Traded a Honda ST 1300 to get the R3. While I will miss the Honda, a great bike, not much soul. Kind of like a two wheeled toaster. Super performance, but does not make you laugh just looking at it. Just thinking about the R3 puts a smile on my face. I am hoping this forum will be a good site for information on maintenance and upgrades. Nothing like finding the inside story from the people who ride the bikes. Been a big Triumph fan since purchase of my first new motorcycle, a 1975 Triumph Trident T160.
