1st Valkyrie I have ever seen besides mine

dates on my cameras all all whacked out but had this bike following my Model A Truck as i kept looking at it and those strange lit up turn signals.

bought my bike without ever seeing one and this is the 1st time seeing another one. He has blacked out the chrome over the headlight and his tail light has turn signals now. was so strange to see someone on one of these .

First time I saw another one on the road I laughed inside my helmet. Looked a bit ridiculous to me - like a giant scooter. And there was I thinking I was cool! Best thing that happened though coz from then on I just started to RIDE the thing. And that’s what this machine is: a true RIDER’s bike. And a bloody amazing one at that. As it slowly becomes part of me I love it more and more. Great job Honda.

Not long after I first got the bike (April 2018) I spotted another one in the same parking lot (Lahout's in Lincoln, NH). We both did a double take and he rode over to fist bump. I had no idea a the time just how rare of an occurrence that is so I didn't appreciate it then as much as I would now.
I did wave at a GL1500 Valk yesterday at an intersection in CT and even that seems to be a semi-rare occurrence for me.

And yet, here in li'l ol' Perth (most isolated capital city in the world) I've seen four other Valks so far. When I asked one of the salesmen at the (only) Goldwing dealership in town how many 2014/15 Valkyries they sold he said "without checking I'm guessing around a dozen". That's pretty remarkable when I hear stories like yours.
