Here's my very first bike . A 1993 Yama 535 Virago... Rode this bike all the way from south Florida to Georgia and back without a problem.. Was proud to be pulling 42 hp 馃槅... specs claim the virago was capable of doing 100 , but I think I was cruising at 70 with a smile back then. 馃槑

Wow, awesome.
I luv my stryker. Just got it legal on Monday and been doing some maintenance on it. Just flushed the radiator. Not hard at all. With the power commander V this thing hauls . 馃槑... Been riding my magna also and there's not much comparison. Both bikes can put 2 zeros behind a one ( 100 mph 馃槅, but the torque on the stryker is more than any bike I've owned. -- ( Vrod , rocket 3 , fatbob 114 ) .

The magna's motor was "fantabulous", also the stryker's
in different way, but In that Wild bunch It's clear what is the queen of torque

And It's not ours...馃殌!
If that little rocket 馃殌 is symbol for triumph rocket 3 , well yeah . I had a rocket 3 in 2020 . 163 ft lbs of torque at 4000 rpm and 165 hp. Of course the rocket is a 2500 cc engine. 2.6 liter, more than some cars 馃槅, and weighing in at 670 lbs wet , it's definitely not a light weight. Also, I paid almost 24000 for mine with the detachable saddle bags and it was the gt model. So , for less than 5 grand I picked up my stryker, with 82 torque, and with the mods on it, I'm sure that's not accurate. Don't get me wrong, the rocket is a beast and I loved it, but just like all the women in my life, it's a high maintenance item 馃槅 ... 馃槑 ... here's to life in the fast lane.
