Anybody see the Rocket3 in the Feb Motorcyclist?

I really liked the accesory paint on the orange bike.....but it sure doesn't look like something British. What do you think?

Well behaved women rarely make history.

I'm not mean, you're just a sissy.

Yup, it was up on one of the turntables.......so it should be at the show near you.

Rocket III

Saw the bike on display at the Denver show. In my opinion, it was easily the bike that left the biggest impression at the show. Man, that engine is just unbeleivable! Looks like something that would be comfortable in the engine bay of a Honda Accord. Can't wait to see the magazine tests on it.

I like the chassis layout. But, I can't get over the engine layour. The big slab sides remind me of a car engine. It's supposed to run like a raped ape. I'll reserve judgement until I see one in person.
