That photo is great. Good funny story to go with it too.

How much did the fine cost you to get that shot though

I guess where I put the sunpass it wasn't reading so they were just billing me by plate and when they do that they take a shot.

Oh ok so it was just still the normal billing. Wasn't sure by you getting a photo included if it meant you got a fine from it.

Limited to 750 & only 225 are US-bound.

Once again, just talking to talk.
If you cared, the info was there but really do you have a frame of reference to know how fast it would feel
with that kind of torque?

"At 2500cc, the world’s biggest motorcycle production engine is central to the Rocket 3 TFC’s new class-defining performance, delivering more than 163 FT-lbs (the world’s highest torque) and more than 168 horsepower, this is the most powerful Triumph to date. Adding to its unbeatable performance, the Rocket 3 TFC is also equipped with tailor-made, unique Arrow mufflers with carbon fiber end caps, for an unbelievable deep growling soundtrack."

168 British HP. So it looks really nice but is hampered by electrical problems and doesn't actually run.

That is the safest motorcycle one could buy.

I told my co-worker that they will end up with a lot of resales since 170 ft pound on 2 wheels...a lot of people will be in over their heads, unfortunately.

It's a lot of torque for sure, but it's still a heavy bike - around 800lbs. I wonder how much of that is the engine.

Though I imagine it'd be tough to wheelie a big ol bike like that.

It's a moot point (at least with that limited edition one). I suspect exactly none of them will actually get ridden. I'd even be surprised if they got filled with fluids.

MM would fill it with fluid for sure. Brake fluid in the tank and crank case
