We love Triumph Tridents and BSA Rocket 3s. And with good reason. They look cool. They sound great. And they ride wonderfully. When these bikes came on sale, the biking world was hugely impressed. Yes, there were detractors. Traditionalists. Especially in the early days.

 

But most riders quickly recognised that the future was coming at 'em, and the Tridents and their BSA Rocket 3 counterparts promised great days ahead. And when these bikes hit the racetracks in the hands of riders such as Dick Mann and Gene Romero, the world began to understand how BSA/Triumph (as it was then) had produced a pretty convincing rival to Honda's 750-4 that arrived just a few weeks after the British triple was launched.

 

In many respects the Honda was superior. And it was certainly cheaper to buy. But the Tridents and Rockets were better handling and, we think, better looking.

 

If you're now looking to buy a triple, a little advice will pay dividends. Although there were (often serious) manufacturing issues with some bikes, the majority of machines have long since been sorted. But there are perhaps a few around that need a more thorough investigation.

 

That's where this book (written by Chris Rooke) comes in. It will help you understand the models and show you what's good and what's not so good. And when you've been bitten by the Trident/Rocket III bug, it could stay with you for the longest possible time.
