This is the deluxe model with ABS, self canceling turn signals etc.. Extras include the Corbin Seat, Luggage Rack and Backrest, Chrome Valve covers, Tall windshield. This is an excellent motorcycle that has been garage kept. I got it with 1,000 miles on it and it currently has a little over 10,000 miles on it. All maintenance completed as scheduled. $9,500 Pictures later today

I took a Valkyrie for a ride yesterday. The Valk is smoother which is saying a lot because I think the CTX is a smooth ride. The Valk suspension is better and of course it has more horsepower and torque. The one small negative is my knees bend more on the Valk so the seat must be closer to the foot pegs. The one I rode had a Corbin seat so it is a bit lower than stock.

I have the corbin seat too, it's not much of a difference height wise compared to stock, you sit about an inch or so further back though and that helps. I'll probably end up getting the rivco aero pegs but it's not urgent enough to make me want to spend the money right now.

I put the Aero pegs on my bike. They're nice because they tuck right out of the way and you can open them up with the toe of your boot. Usually takes a try or two.

I really like the rivco pegs over the other options because they flow nicely with the lines of the bike and are a bit higher on the bike than others so you don't lose much, if any, cornering clearance. At 5'7, they're not at the top of my wishlist though.

I did not realize that, haven't sat on one. I'd have expected it to be lighter more like the st1300, maybe the center of gravity is lower? Have you been able to compare the two?
I actually own both and even tho the Valk. might be a little heavier, it's definitely easier to "handle" imo, but, the CTX1300 is way more comfortable all around, and that's with the stock seat.

What in particular is worse on the Valk? The only thing I thought was not as comfortable was how much I had to bend at the knees. The one I rode had a Corbin seat.
