And a week ago I test rode a 2013 R3 Touring. I am 6’4″ 270 and liked them both. The touring model makes more sense because of the wind protection and lockable storage. Although heavy, they are no worse handling than big harley’s and jap vtwin cruisers, and once underway they feel no heavier than any other large bike. They are unique, an attention getter but not for everyone. Either Rocket is noticeably faster than an big vtwin on the market. I plan to get one after selling one of my current bikes. The rocket 3 is exciting and fast, and that’s what I look for in a motorcycle.

It handles lighter than my C109RT and feels solid and well controlled. Don’t like the rear brake pedal placement, but everything else was spot on to your review. If only it had been available before I bought my Suzuki in 2009……………………
