Had been led into believing (based on another forum member's VIN research) that the true first ones had all been built, ex/imported and retailed world-wide during the second half of 2004:confused:

Which had to apply to mine, vintage (i.e. local registration) October of that year. Or so I thought:( , Grumpy

Jamie, -Triumph Rocket III- "Old Guard"?

Or mere "Second Squadron"?

Yeah I got one... don't know where the hell it is now but I got one... two years ago back in June of 2004.

Wonder if the cert is based on VIN and you got an old bike thats been packed away somewhere or just an administrative mistake.

When did you buy your bike, Grumpy? I think all Rockets were listed as 2005 models in the US even though many were purchased in the summer of 2004. What happened to your foot?? :eek:

Well, I hope it heals fast. I get beat to crap all the time at work, WilburT probably does too... were just a couple of grease monkeys.

That must be fun stopping at lights....
