They should at least stamp them to say that the servicing has been done.

Windshield for the McQueen:
What are people using for windshields on the McQueen bike? They have them for the Bonnie, but the headlight is larger than the McQ. and they have them for the scrambler...will the Dart flyscreen (for the scrambler) work? Not particularly anxious to have one, but my days of running "naked" are done. Any suggestions very much appreciated.

i also had a similar experience with the indianapolis dealer. wasn't real thrilled with my first service their (they told me the booklet wasn't important, had them sign it anyway). seeing what you guys got charged, i also feel like i got screwed (over $250.00). the sales guys were cool though. which dealer did you go to ArmyVet? i think i will try either donaldson's in st louis or one of the chicago area dealers. anybody had any service at these locals? i am planning on having exhaust, air box removal, and air injection removal done in the spring. any info would be great.

Dryvr,

Let me know what you come up with. I am interested too.

Wow, last several days on the SMQ have been some of the most exhilarating of my life, on a bike ;-).

Seems to run better and better the more you ride...

Would be a good opportunity to put some faces to usernames.
Getting the SMQ Racing Team on board would be an added incentive for me to make the 10,000 mile journey (albeit without my McQueen).

Someone already suggested this idea, and I think its a good one. I am taking a tour next summer, so I am in.

Let me run this by Chad McQueen and Matt Capri (at South Bay Triumph).

One place that immediately comes to mind is the annual Friends of Steve McQueen car and motorcycle show, held at Steve's alma mater (Boys Republic) in Chino, CA in June. It's an all-day show, with a dinner the night before, and it raises money for the Boys Republic. The McQueen family usually attends, as does motorcycle luminaries such as Dave Ekins, Troy Lee, and others.

By example, the Bullitt Owners Club usually gets 25-40 Bullitt Mustangs to attend the event. It would be awesome to get a group to attend in 2013. We could also have the 0000 bike there.
