Road Test: Honda vs. Triumph Rocket III

Way down in the of France there’s a secret up on a hill, overlooking a secluded where the President of France has a holiday home next to a beach. The village itself is all narrow streets, hanging pastel walls and terracotta tiles.

The hairpin approach the south affords views out the Mediterranean; from the north, a but spectacular stretch of twisting through dry, cork oak offers a brief slice of of the finest riding southern has to offer. It’s all very, nice. Me, being a creature of habit, like an insane bear pacing back and across its cage, I keep to the same places again and


This is one of them.

And it being time of year again, time when thoughts to travelling long distances on for the purely self-indulgent reason of to, we thought wouldn’t it be a nice to go back to that secret place.

But what we needed some equally special This was a trip with a in mind, not a harum-scarum cross-country by sports bike. So we required transport.

Something stylish, something something that would a special place feel more special.

Hello? Can we have a Goldwing please?

The incarnation of Honda’s continuously indecently luxurious, opulently Wing is as focused and single-minded a of motorcycle as is currently available. a supersport 600 or a motocrosser, the Goldwing is to do one thing well, and everything be damned. And that thing is two people and their things in style, and a slightly exuberant across large swathes of lands.

Our foil to the Wing’s effusive There is little to compare with a Wing — K1200LT and Harley-Davidson’s Ultra Electra Glide come — but we wanted something more ostentatious, even over-the-top. And we found it. Triumph’s Rocket III is a blunt but mightily weapon in the battle to be noticed, but Classic edition takes a step further.

A more comfortable seat, footboards and swept-back bars set the apart from the standard but add another two grands worth of Triumph extras — screen, sissy bar, panniers, heated grips, this and two-tone that and we’ve got a Yankee-style mile-eating with which to head fully loaded, two-up and in style.
