Picking up a 2014 Valk tomorrow.

Long time rider, first time Valkyrie owner. Picking her up tomorrow and naming her Big Blue. Can’t wait to try her out. Only 3.5k miles and in excellent shape. So now the checks get written to make her unique!

Hope to find a ton of great info on this forum and meets some fellow riders.

Congratulations! in fact that's exactly what I named mine... Big Blue or Big B... LOL! i'm sure you will enjoy the ride , but it does take some getting used to even though you've been a long time rider.
Where are you located ?

It's a whole new experience , atleast what I personally went through - the transition from a V-twin to a FLAT 6.
but anyways , have fun and be safe!

Congratulations on your purchase! You are going to love the bike. I caution you - be wary of the short draw on the clutch. It grabs quickly and that engine is ready to rip immediately. If you're not used to it, you may be shocked initially.


Looks like extensive customization has been done already with a windshield, passenger floorboards, seat, back rest and passenger backrest and luggage rack.



The riders on this forum are extremely helpful and have probably covered any question you might ask, but if not, someone knows the answer.


Where are you located and picking it up?


Keep us posted!
