So my friend Mike and I have been talking about me buying his pristine GT. I believe it is a 2006 like Rocket but it might be a 2005. It doesn't matter to me.
But it is perfect with around 5000 miles on it (Rocket is currently over 66,000) It might be too pretty for a Cannonball bike, but I am going to use it anyway. The GT has a significant handicap advantage on the 250 GTS, and with a tour tank, might be able to run near the front.
Rocket is turning into my around town hot rod. With the Leo Vince exhaust and fly screen, it likes to be seen and heard wherever it goes. But I would rather keep it within "Sarah, please come to pick me up" territory for now. Maybe a new engine will go into it one day or we can find a cure for the ills of this one.
A little sad, but we move on.
