Just joined tonight as I have been reading all of your comments about the current Valkyrie. I bought my first Wing in 1975, the first year, then a 1200 and later another 1200, then the last was a 2004 Gold Wing which had the recall to have the frame re-welded. Sold it several years later and have been through other brands but I'm probably about to pull the trigger on either a 2014 NEW blue or 2015 NEW red one. My local dealer has the '14's at $10,999. Makes it pretty much a no-brainer for this much bike. Been reading all of your posts about windshields, saddlebags, centerstands, etc., but those can be dealt with at a later date. I'll probably be posting later when the new Valk is in the barn. Stay safe.
