2006 Triumph Rocket III Classic
1/4 turn throttle ring
Tank riser
VM-1 DR cams

Lloydz high-flow air cleaner
Bassani baffled OEM mufflers

If it's not broke, make it better

If you're going to grill, do it right. Take the extra time to get all the flavor you can. Burn that charcoal.

Gas is practical but I really prefer a wood stoked campfire to burn it a bit and get bits of burnt wood and ash on the meat as well.

I have a gas grill that just takes up space on my back deck. Given a choice I would always go for the charcoal grill instead.

Charcoal for sure is my first choice. Especially now that I have one of those charcoal starter contraptions that makes it easy to light without using that nasty fluid.

I do enjoy a charcoal-grilled steak or burger. I'll do fish, shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob...I love cooking over charcoal.
