New Member - I have 100k miles on Harley's (mostly FXDC). Wanted more performance and a smoother, better engineered bike. Bought a new 2014 Valkyrie in August -put 10k on it riding the same routes in NC, VA, WV, and AL as the FXDC and am very happy with the decision. So nimble for a large bike. In November, struck a pickup cutting across traffic at 45mph and totaled the Valkyrie. The driver fled but the Valkyrie and armor saved my life. The frame broke when the forks folded and put a hole in the engine but I am in one piece. December, bought another new 2014 Valkyrie, just like the first - black. Have TorqMaster exhausts with just the front baffle (had both on the first bike) - only mods. Just changed oil at 3.6K as I am planning a trip next week. I trailer it sometimes but mostly ride, ride, ride. I already appreciate peoples comments and look forward to making any contributions where appropriate. Blessed to be alive.
