    Rocket Trike

    Saw this at the local supermarket. They were grabbing supplies for their early morning departure.

    Owner rode it for 30,000kms before converting to trike.
    He tows a camper trailer with it and was leaving to continue a round Australia trip.
    His wife said it is so much more comfratable and less tiring for her as pillion

    Sorry about quality...mobile phone camera

    Rocket? That looks like a wheel-driven vehicle, not one powered by thrust.

    Have you seen Leno's turbine-powered bike? Its top speed is still "theoretical" as no one has ridden it beyond 240 mph so far.....

    BSA Rocket 3 no such thing as a Triumph Rocket 3

    Triumphs were Tridents.

    I raced the latter.

    I'm picking up nit-picking. I blame Dave Brand and JDM.

    Unless Triumph are branding things as 'Rocket 3' in modern times, and these brand pirates should be lined-up and shot.
