I'm still very surprised that in the 4 months that I've owned this valk and all the riding I'm doing, not seen a single one like mine of any color.

In the same respect, I'm sort of glad. I am unique!

Hey! I know they are around here somewhere and figure eventually I'll see one. Initially, everyone that sees mine have this inquisitive look and will ask about it.

I'm finding it yields a certain respect. One guy offered some paper towels when I could't find any at the gas pump. Another fella opened the door for me at the convenience store. I don't get this too often. People are always yelling they like it. It gets acknowledgement because it stands out among all the crotch rockets and harleys.

I didn't really care for the looks at first and kept having to look at it. I can't get a reviewers remarks out of my head. He said as the valk was heading toward him, it reminded him of a big scooter. Nah! To me, I think it looks cool coming or going. Seeing the pipes with the 3 little pipes in each one is different. You know, it definitely has a symmetry about it unlike any I've owned before. I like that!

I still don't really like the look of it - especially the side-on view. But I've decided this is actually good because it makes me focus on the riding experience. I used to worry about what others thought of me until one day I realised they didn't. They were too busy worrying about what others thought of them.

This bike has an awesome profile, you just have to see it. I call it "Dat Ass". From the rear just left of center, looking to the front. Looks fast sitting still.

I have had a number of bikers beside me with that look of confusion on their faces trying to figure out what I am riding. They sometimes ask and others just ride off shaking their heads. In the 4 years that I have owned my Valk, I have seen about 7 or 8 of them out there.

:laugh: The headlight and signals remind of shreks face and ears.

mine is the only one in the Pensacola area = a Huge Harley town !
being a retired US Marine i mingle with them and occasionally twist the R's up beside them always with the same result. often i get the finger after the brief exhibition of unmatched power which gives me a smile of satisfaction ;]
