My Rocket 3. Should of never bought this. Had it 12hours. Wrecked it. Actually, it wrecked me. Turned me away from Triumph forever.

it is just best to stay out of strip clubs..However I do catch myself looking at Speed Triples sometimes but will nver buy one though.
That is very ugly. Glad you survived it.Bought a 07 Rocket 3 with 89 miles on it in 2015. Wound up being one of the ones where the shaft bearing was put in backwards....
the bike or the incident? I bet both after the incident?That is very ugly. Glad you survived it.
I use to have a ST1300 and that group complained about the drop in horsepower and the price was a bit high,Thanks Dill Pickle!
I absolutely LOVE the CTX! I bought it brand new in 2016 at the dealer for $9000 - half the original price. It's a Deluxe with TRAC, ABS, stereo and self canceling signals. The thing is a very subtle rocket and is only a half second slower in the 0-60 than the Valk. It handles beautifully, has Bluetooth and a built in charging port. I never thought I would want another bike. But then I saw the Valkyrie... And I had to have it. I will say, the Valk is a lot heavier and has a much higher center of gravity, so the CTX is a much easier bike to ride. I also like the handgrips on the CTX better - they're kind of rubbery and not quite as thick, so I can get a much better grip on them. And the bars on the CTX come back to you, whereas on athe Valk, you have to reach forward a little, which I don't like (and for that reason, there's more room on the CTX for accessories on the bars). And having that stereo and all the nice features, and storage compartments helps. I have it all accessorized with custom made bag guards, center stand, battery charger pigtail, luggage rack and mirrors on the bars. It is PRISTINE!
I love that bike so much, it is going to KILL me to sell it, but I can't keep all these bikes. One of my neighbors has expressed mild interest, but I'm not sure he has the space for it. The only complaint I have on the CTX is what everyone complains about - the suspension is harsh. But it is a lovely machine and I don't understand why it never sold better. Maybe too expensive at the outset.
