For the record I never gave him any road head. I may have given him a hand job in the parking lot but that is only because he got us a suite at the Doubletree Friday night when we stopped in Baton Rouge. He kept trying to get one queen bed but I insisted on a king size since I'm not the snuggling type.

I'm jelly!!!!!! She's beautiful! I want one!!!!

Make sure the 2012's turn signals aren't in the recall for your bike. They had a huge batch of bad turn signals that are brittle and will fracture under normal use.

I had three break on my Daytona after a normal ride. First time.. I walked out one morning to find one dangling by the wires. Figured something had hit it that I didn't know about. Had two spares since I put a fender elim kit on. Replaced the turn signal.. Two days later that same side broke again... and I thought I had over tightened the bolt. A few days later.. the other side broke too. I did some investigating and found the recall note.

Team Man-screw-so (off 59) said they had done all the recall work. They were more than happy to sell me three turn signals at $110 a piece. Called triumph and long story short... Team Man-screw-so told triumph they did the recall work, and they were trying to sell me my own turn signals that they had never mounted. I never got a recall notice from Triumph because Team Man-screw-so reported that all recall work was completed before I picked up the bike. Anywhoo, Got all four mounted by TM for free and left the shop, never to return.

Here is the service bulletin link: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/...4&refurl=email

You know the routine. First he has to sink a bunch of money in to it and then he blows the motor, or sells it, or trades it for some crazy like a snow cone machine or a cement mixer.
