No Substitute for Cubic Inches....

If you like big, fast motorcycles and subscribe to the theory that "wretched excess is barely enough", go see the Triumph Rocket III.
Secondly, a large handful is going to have you thinking you have inadvertently hitched a ride on the Space Shuttle during takeoff, however, and you better be hanging on. Producing 147 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm and 140 bhp at 5,750 rpm, you are in for a wild ride. As the approaching landscape goes into some sort of manic fast-forward and your stomach internals attempt to wrap themselves around your spine, the Rocket III just keeps feeling as if it is never going to run out of power.

Awesome. It sounds like this monster will just ravel the road up in a cloud of blue smoke and burning rubber and bring your destination to you. I want one.
