wgold9722 WOW!!! I drive by that Crofton 'stealership' every day on my way to work!! Great video...thanks for posting the link. I was going to use them (NO NAME) as my maintenance shop, but ALL of my riding buddies and a few coworkers told me that their SERVICE really sucks. I now go to Laurel for ALL things Valkyrie!!! The customer service there is top notch.

The thing about the Rune ( even the new Valk) it's kind of a forgotten bike that at the moment is pretty underappreciated. Especially the Rune. That bike in 03 was like $30k out the door. Not many made it out to the road yet alone the number built. Hence guys leaving them out to rot like that.
I too would love one and maybe one might cross my path at the right time..

bscrive Yep, just what a 21 year old kid needs to ride. It will probably be in the bone yard within a month of him riding it. What a waste.

Ok, for ALL parties interested - I was on patrol in Mr. Watkins neighborhood (the Rune) this Sunday and I stopped by his house. I did get the story behind the Rune. His late brother left him the Rune as well as a 60's Muscle car and exotic German sports car, which is the reason there's NO ROOM in his garage. He has already promised the Rune to his oldest son once he turns 21...he's 17 now. They're going to take the Rune to a relative's house soon because they have plenty of room in their 4 car garage. I hope his son knows what he's getting himself into, because the Rune is a BIG, BEAUTIFUL, LONG and POWERFUL work of art!!! Mr. Watkins last rode it in 2016 and it scared him so bad, he got home, parked it and covered it up. !!!NOT FOR SALE!!! Thank you #Geepers for the gentle nudge to talk to the Rune owner's Father, but it's still RUNE ABUSE!!!

I wouldn't wait until warm weather - the owner is more likely to get interested in the bike himself as the weather improves. Do it now while the bike is more likely to be a pain in the arse to him.

I'm afraid I don't have your patience to do the watch and wait thing though. I would just knock on the door and be up front about it..."I notice your bike doesn't get ridden much and wondered if you'd be interested in selling it?"

But that's just me. You have to do what feels natural for you...
