What Can I Say?



I know it has been at least 10 weeks or so...

It's been in the body shop and got it back yesterday. I have no words to describe how happy I am. Sweet ride! It had superficial damage and just had to replace plastic and lots of it. Had to get new shield and hwy pegs.

That first ride after so long of not riding was a conglomeration of all the many imaginations that I had of 'that first ride' once repairs were finished. I'm a kid! I got my toy back. My days and weekends will be brighter. I have been so restless and getting pretty anxious recently. Whew!

Rides like it was never gone... BTW! Yesterday was my birthday.

Yep! I get to ride year round and this is usually my favorite time except for cold/rain.

Unless you ride a Valkyrie, people will never understand. These machines are amazing, I am from northern Ohio where the riding season is coming to a close.

I've owned 7 different ones in about 8 years. They're ain't another one out there like the 2014 valk!

I'm very sorry that I've missed a good bit of riding time since mine has been out of commission but I plan to make up for it. You guys up north, I feel your pain due to cooler stuff coming your way... just take advantage of now and any warmer/dryer days that may come. We all know how messed up our weather can be.

I was putting lots of miles on it before it went to body shop. It only has a little over 13000 so not really broken in.

Sun is setting earlier. We fall back with the clocks in a few weeks. All the yanks up north are fretting over it all and I can understand it. Would seriously drive me crazy to have to park it.

I am hoping I can get at least one real good ride in. My riding has been only like a 90 mile radius in my state from my home town. Temps below 55 are about at my minimum but we still get many days all thru winter that we will ride here in the south.

I've got some making up to do with my valk so should be posting a little more with pics.
