"Bought today for $7999... OTD $8760 (no tax, I gotta pay that in my home state) (yes had to finance with them for that price or add $400)

Big St. Charles, MO (St. Louis)

Now I need to figure out how to pick it up

Dealer would not negotiate price.


Edit: yes its new"


Plus $1000 for a 2015.

(I don't work for these guys but after research, the cheapest on my side of country.)
-Customer service- Meh

Windshield info

I have the factory Honda tall mounts, With quick release knobs and a 1inch tilt out on the bottom backet of the mount. Had Bob at SlipStreamer make 3 different shields for me (used my OEM as template). a 16 inch dark for around town, tinted 18 for local and warm days and a 20 tinted with bottom blacked out covering the cross brace I really like that one. I feel his prices are much better. He is the own and will coustom make about anything you want. I have nothing to do do with him or SlipStreamer. I live in MN so I would go to to factory and talk to them in person. I have had many
shields made for my cycles over the years. F6A, F6B, XTX1200ES, DR650E, FLHX. Been happy, good pricing, fast turn around. There are not a lot of options and when I find a good one that works for me I let people know. I like to be able to change the bike for different riding form Sunday rides to IBA Saddle Sores.

I did an over the phone credit app with them and did not qualify - they offered to split the 400, but I ended up making a deal on a closer one, so even at that price there is some room

I bought mine at Big St Charles Motorsports too.
Swagfu, did you have yours shipped? I'm considering purchasing one myself. I'm in South Florida WPB area myself, and from what I can tell I'd have to make quite a hike somewhere to buy one.

I am having it shipped. Shipping take a little time and I found a shipper from UShip. Uship is where you put in what you want to pay and people send you offers for the price. I was quoted anywhere from $390 to $1000. I think they base it on mileage. I got the $390 plus the service fee from Uship for a total of $419 and some change. I bought it last Saturday (9/1) and am expecting deliver around 9/20. The wait is killing me, but all the bikes around here are way more expensive. If you call them, ask for Sam Weber. He was great to work with and responded to most of my email right away....even on Sunday. They had quite a few in stock.

Where are you in the WPB area? I lived in Lake Worth for about 16 years. Graduated from Lake Worth High School.

Ah, great to hear on the price. That would make the bike loads cheaper than what I'm seeing for most of Florida. The wait is always the worst part! I'm hopefully going to be able to test ride one down in Hollywood FL this weekend to see if I really like the bike - I'm coming from a BMW S1000XR sport touring bike, so its a big departure. I'm hoping the Valk has more "character" to ride, so to speak. The BMW is a great bike to ride and on paper, but the feel is very "robotic" and not exactly what I love in bikes. If the test ride goes well, I might just have to give Sam a call.

I've lived in the Jupiter area to be precise for about 18 years, went to Suncoast High in Riviera and then graduated from FAU in Boca. Usually I'll be commuting anywhere from WPB to Boynton Beach range every other day.

I am coming off a 1990 CBR1000F....so I totally understand where you are coming from. I have ridden mostly sport/sport touring bikes over the years with a few cruiser bikes along the way. I haven't gotten mine yet, and yes, the wait is killing me, but when I test rode it I was impressed how smooth it was and even though the seating position isn't what I am used to I found it to be a good position. The power comes on smooth and strong for sure. And my feet weren't way out in front of me. I have osteoarthritis in my spine so I can't really do the "jet ski" position very well. I have to be able to get up on the pegs a little on rough bumps. So that was a concern for me. I am really looking forward to riding it.

On your commute, do you go down 95 every day? I was down there about 6 months ago and it has really changed through that area. When I lived there 95 was only 3 lanes both directions...now it was 6 I think. And the surface roads had so much traffic I couldn't believe it. So many people. Good luck if you get a chance to test ride one. See if the dealer there will match the price or come close. You never know.

Here is my current bike.

Looks like they have about 30 new Valkyrie's for sale.
I have mine but what is the total price with set up shipping and other add ones?
I see if you pay cash it's $400 more unless you finance with them.
https://www.bigstcharlesmotorsports...ventory#page=xnewinventory&sq=Honda Valkyrie

This is whats on my bill of sale.

Sale price $7999
Admin fee $79
Temp tag $5
Prep $299
Dest $380

Total to me was $8762

That doesn't include the shipping price of $390 or the sales tax as I had to pay that in my own state. Hope this helps.

I did ok than I bought a 2015 from a dealer 40 miles from me and I paid about $9800 plus tax.
And St Charles is selling 2015 for about the same.
Here in Wis the 2014 and 2015 were the same price.
