    After owning a Rocket tourer for 10 years , used it for 80,000 klm of touring . It was what it was , a terrefic comfortable touring bike ,, this thing i just can't see what its gonna be used for ,, If you want a bike  for hooning , its just to big , if you want it for touring , good luck with that , just look at the seat , my missis would be saying drop me off at the next bus stop

    They need to invest in a solid Italian Designer instead of the deaf, dumb and blind pom they are curently using.  Its as ugly as a V-Rod.

    Or maybe the Germans. Hyundai threw a bunch of cash at a BMW bloke and he livened up their offerings.

    Feed him garlic bread and German sausage then offer to sell off his drawings to the highest bidder.

    Not many new bikes get my attention anymore unfortunately; the new Trumpies look a bit try hard.

    My blasted mate has the original model Rocket
    Doesn't matter what bikes are parked alongside it when we stop.
    THAT is the one that gets the attention.
    Don't sweat it, the new one will get PLENTY

    So Steelo, it makes you feel and look like the runty 3-legged dog that ppl ignore as they pat the Siberian Husky. 

    Is that what you are really saying?

    They look a little bit better from the other side.

    BUT, there does not seem to be many places to attach your big touring panniers to. Or for your 25 stone missus to sit comfortably.
    I guess it would be a fun bike to nip down to the shops on to pick up a packet of Tally Ho's though.
    I'd like to take one for a test ride for the experience.

    What is it with the, "Lets chop the back fender/mudguard back to nothing", style/trend then realize it was a STUPID IDEA. So lets just put a mini mudguard further back to make up for the mistake. Harley do the same thing on the new Fatbobs. Just tried Googling a "worse design trend in history" and nothing comes up.
    This nearly beats it.
    It's almost like they purposely fuck up so you have to buy the overpriced "Tail tidy kit".

    This side looks heaps better, starting to like it the more I look at it.
