I wrote a review back in 2008 and thought I would just update it. Yes I have still got the 2005 Rocket, 20 odd thousand miles on it now, and its still going strong.It has never missed a beat and I have serviced it myself with the help of the Triumph manual and local Motorcycle shop.
The Wife no longer goes on the back so I have removed the pillion seat, fitted Thuderbike bars and a shorty exhaust, it now sounds like it should do, Loud. Since 2008 I have no longer toured abroad, I have stayed in britain,and apart from the weather it is a beautifull place to ride a bike.
And in 2010 I took the bike around the Mountain course in the Isle man at the TT. Next year I am planning on doing Lands End to John o Groats just for fun.The overall finish is still good, [it is garaged] except the wheels are getting a bit tatty.But a third rear tyre will be fitted at the end of this year so I may get the wheels powered coated. As I said previously I started with a Triumph in 67 and at the moment have no Plans on changing the Rocket.I would Recommend this bike to anyone who wants fun,reliability and road presence. Well Done Triumph!
