Thank you for having me from Oakville, Ontario, Canada
« on: September 25, 2015, 06:28:01 pm »
Thank you for letting me join.  I had a Rocket 3 Touring.  Crashed it end of July 2014.  Still healing but getting better every day.  Bought my Trophy used wit 1,300 km on it.  Have added 20,000 km since getting it at the end of March.  Trying to decide on a few possible upgades.  Touring windshield.  Comfort seats Rider and pillion. Exhaust system.  Other than that I am very happy.  Oh yes I had to replace the tires at 18,000 km.  Got Pirelli Angel GT.  Amazing tires over the st.  Seriously improved cornering and road feel.

Look forward to reading more and enjoying the bike for many KM.  CHEERS!!!  This (virtual) round's on me!

Welcome to the Forum :400: and congratulations on the new bike.  Kudos for the courage to get back on the bike after a serious accident.  Takes courage to do so.

 :401: oakville, that virtual beer is not bad, thanks.    Just south of 12, 000 miles on the original tires, that's good,  you must pay close attention to the air pressure.   Were they shot or could have milked more out of them if you had wanted?

The front was cupped.  The back had about 14 inches of steel belt showing if you added up the 4 open spots.  About 70% riding was with a passenger.

@Verdun95.  That is 2 minutes away from my dads house.  He is on lakeshore just east of Devon.  Small world!!!
