    Steve McQueen Bonny on Fleabay

    I see someone has listed a new McQueen Bonneville on Ebay.( I searched high and low before finding mine (#435 out of 1,100), and there aren't any left. This could be a great...

    How many miles do you have on your bike?

    I'm embarrassed to report that, no, it was actually over three days. But by way of an explanation, I keep seven insured and registered bikes (New York State needs the money!); in fact, I'm just returning from a trip to Sturgis with my Dyna (37,000 miles). The Honda Magna has 32,000; three Honda...

    Great product! I use mine every time I wash a bike or clean a chain. It's also available from Harbor Fright---I paid 18 bucks for mine. (And yes, I mean "fright," 'cause some of the stuff at Harbor Freight is downright scary!)

    McQueen pedestrian slicer

    Finally lettered and installed my "no-drill plate," a.k.a. pedestrian slicer, available from Newbonneville. Exceptionally well-designed and manufactured I might add. It came powder coated in black gloss, so I only had to apply a frisket film mask and spray on the white. Thanks to the "no-drill"...

    Triumph Steve McQueen SE T100

    Yes, I have one as well, and I put about 25 miles on it so far. It's number 455, I think. Already I'm getting a bit of blueing of the pipes. Please tell me more about removing the air injectors. How is this done? Thanks!

    Happy Father's Day to me!

    Ha! Thank you! Speaking of the King of Cool, when I registered the bike I paid a few bucks extra for a personalized license plate that reads "HILTS," as in Virgil Hilts, the irreverent POW played by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape. I should have it in the mail any day now. Thank you for...

    cross country..

    My recipe ... Read "Blue Highways" by William Least Heat Moon, and "Travels with Charley" by Steinbeck. Avoid Interstates; avoid state capitols with the exception of Helena, Montana, which is beautiful; avoid fast-food, choosing instead mom and pop restaurants. Travel alone, camping out...

    Jacket opinions (Stocton or Rivton)

    Sure don't want to hijack a thread here, but since we're talking motorcycle jackets, does anybody have any opinions about the Roland Sands Hesher jacket? I realize RS stuff is kinda pricey, but this jacket seems to be an exception at $170.00. Of course, it's not leather, but it looks pretty...

    Happy Father's Day to me!

    Okay, so I've learned a few things already in only 2 responses: These are called "trumpets," eh? (I like being up on the lingo); and, Irishrider60 knows his dealerships! Yes, I made the trek from Middletown, New York, to pick up the McQueen in at Libby's in New Haven. My buddy is going even...

    Jacket opinions (Stocton or Rivton)

    Can't argue with some of the choices mentioned, but if you're spending upwards of a few hundred bucks for leathers, you owe it to yourself to check out these folks: . Quality and customer service is nothing short of stellar.

    Happy Father's Day to me!

    Well, maybe not Father's Day, because that wasn't even on my mind when I plunked down my deposit about 5 months ago for a 2012 Triumph Steve McQueen that I picked up this weekend: I'm generally a Honda/Harley guy, but when an ad for the McQueen caught my eye as I thumbed through a copy of...
