A side view of this massive 2300 cc Triumph Rocket III. I believe these pics were taken out in the Saguaro National Park in Tucson Arizona. For a great trip, and if you've never been, this is the place to go. www.nps.gov/sagu
Bill's 2009 Triumph Rocket III. Bill has had it up to 140 mph. He says there is a kit you can buy that they say will allow the bike to hit 175 mph
Bill's Rocket III is definitely in the Saguaro National Park. Those giant Saguaro's are everywhere in the area.
The rear end of the Rocket III. Check out his license plate..
The front of the Rocket III. I sat on one at the Tucson Triumph Dealership last year and aside from it being a monster bike, the seat was very comfortable. Bill, who also owns a 1974 Z-1 Kawasaki and an 04 Harley Fat Boy, says the Triumph is very comfortable.
This is Bill's 08 Triumph Bonneville also out in the Saguaro National Park

The 08 Triumph Bonneville, just outside Old Tucson, where they filmed hundreds of westerns.
This is Bill's 1977 Triumph Silver Jubilee Bonneville. He sold his customized Harley Sportster to buy this one. For more on the Silver Jubilee Edition Triumph, see this link: www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/triu/triumph_bonneville_750_t140v%20sil%20jub%2077.htm
Bill's Triumph Silver Jubilee. Photo was taken out by the scenic Gate's Pass
Bill's Triumph out in the Saguaro National Park in Tucson Arizona. Those look like bluebonnets to me. With all the color out there, this must of been taken following a recent rain shower.
good side view...
Looking down over the Triumph's handle bars into a small gulch...

Another view of the Triumph. I love Tucson Arizona. It is very scenic, good roads for riding, great bike nites and good friends. If I wasn't married to Janice, that would be where I be living now. Janice wants nothing to do with the desert, so, here I sit...
Gina's new butterfly tattoo.
Gina is a riot to be around. She has a great sense of humor and can take as well as she gives..
Enjoying the Sonora Desert flowers are Riley (Gina's daughter) and Emily (Bill's youngest daughter)
Emily (blond) & Riley (burnette) in the flowers out in the Saguaro National Park, Tucson Arizona
Oh, did I mention that Gina was with child? Bill, you stud, you!!!
This is Gina (3rd from left) and the rest of the waitresses from Jerry Bob's Restaurant. This is our favorite breakfast & lunch place when I go to Tucson. for more info, see this link: www.yelp.com/biz/jerry-bobs-family-restaurant-tucson
It was obviously a good party, because here is Gina getting crazy!! Bill ya done good!!! she's a keeper!!
This will conclude this post. I appreciate Bill sending me these pics and keeping me up to date. I look forward to the ride out there next year. The last two years I made the run on the Vulcan non-stop. I sold the Vulcan last week and next year I get to break the Harley in on a non-stop run to Tucson.
