My bad. The badges are from an '05 NOT an '07. However, I like the looks of your '07 badges better.

Thanks, I love how the badge comes to a point at the same point as the paint. They really look integrated together. Though these are much bigger badges and they stick way out from the tank, probably 2" or so at the front of the brow. Here's a bigger pic for clarity.

Just got back from a very nice ride on one of my favorite roads. 57 degrees out. I'm not looking forward to winter. I love the sound of the Predators while leaning into the curves. I'll probably not ride when the temp. gets below 40. I like to ride for pleasure, not punishment.

With the gas crunch on Long Island due to Hurricane Sandy I commuted to work on my 2012 Bonneville SE the last couple of days. It was a little chilly (low 40's when I left in the morning) but it's a short 25 minute ride not too bad. Hoping the Island we get some gas deliveries over the weekend.

Be safe, last I heard it should be a couple more days. There are tankers unloading right now.

Today I rode 80 miles (round trip) to the Triumph dealership so they could re-map the ECU to accomodate for the Predator exhaust I put on a few days ago. It really made a difference, no more severe popping when decelerating.
This is the first bike (first vehicle actually) where you can easily tweak the ECU. It only took them about 10 minutes...I was surprised it could be done so quickly and inexpensively!

The 2013 McQueen

I thought I would post a few pics of McQueen #305... I was lucky enough to get one on July 3 of this year from Hanson's triumph in Medford, Oregon...Great personnel...It has Sleepers on it as well as Hagons in the rear and Progressives in the front,Heidenau tires and a Superbrace.It now handles Great...I have only put about 2100 miles on it so far and do find the upgrades worthwhile from a handling standpoint...Regards to all...Hardermann

PS:
I ran across the 2 guys in the Kubelwagen 2 weeks after I got the McQueen...What are the odds?...to Koolbel for me!

Has Long Island got power for the pumps?
