I already have a Kawasaki Z900, and I was looking for a motorcycle for an acquaintance, and he kept rejecting all my suggestions .. and then I chanced upon a Valkyrie. It could not take my eyes off, and I wanted a tourer for longer rides. and so, I ended up buying it, and the price was great. It already had Corbin Seats, Breakway Throttle lock, Phone holder, Gustaffson windshield (but this was too short for me) and more..
Initially, I thought I made a mistake with my purchase. It was huge, not used to the size, and I thought it would ride me rather than the other way round. But, I am getting used to it, and I am loving it so much that, I am finding that I am riding this more than I ride my z900.
Oh, I also completed a IBA ride (1000 Miles/24Hrs) with this.. and apart from a few hitches (like the fact that I needed a better windshield, and a better footpeg), this was amazing... very comfy ride.
The engine/exhaust note is orgasmic
Now, Just need to adjust the handlebars, get a better windshield, and explore options to plug a decent speaker system...
