hey, thanks all for the responses. it's kinda what i expected for the most part. i talked to the triumph rep out at sturgis this year and spoke to a couple owners at the triumph display and i've read some reviews from motorcycle mags since getting back from sturgis, so everything you guys said seems to be right on par. i just wanted some more info. don't get me wrong, i love the road king, great ride, but its def lacking on the power, braking and handling.
i've been looking at some ducati st3's/st4's and just sat on and started a brand new ducati 1100 monster right before leaving for sturgis. but the only problem is most of my riding is 600 or so miles until i get to roads that would be nice for a sport bike. hence why i'm looking at the rocket 3. on the plus side, i think the rocket 3 has enough power i could trailer a sport bike behind it! haha
