Yes and no
far,, I have my own questions. but first I will answer yours.I've gone long enough without a Valkyrie. I totaled my first generation Valkyrie in 2015 five days after I retired. I'm healed, it's time for a new one. I would like to configure my new Valkyrie similar to my old one but without the leather saddlebags. My questions are:
1. I would like to do the solo saddle with a Honda cargo rack and Honda sissy bar and keep the passenger handlebars to secure my touring gear but remove the passenger seat. Is this easily doable?
2. Does anybody make a rack to replace the passenger seat?
3. More questions to come.
The congrats are pre-mature as I am still negotiating.congrats
Third times a charm. My first effort to purchase a second-generation Valkyrie was when the new old stock was selling for about $8k a few years ago. I paid a down payment and had a plane ticket to fly to Milwaukee, Wisc to pick up a brand new black model and ride it back to the west coast. With bags packed, when it came time to go to the airport my wife said she would not drive me to the airport and wanted nothing to do with me getting another motorcycle. So I thought in the interest of marital peace I would cancel this. Two years later my wife of 43 years and I decided to split the sheets. Unencumbered by a controlling spouse, I located a lightly used black ABS model in Portland, OR and was on my way to purchase it when I got cold feet and decided to not go through with the purchase. So now on my third attempt, I will be picking up a lightly used 2014 black Valkyrie on Tuesday. This time it is a go.
I like the gas gauge and the "welcome" message is nice on the second generation (2G).OK, so this is what I want to know. How do you like your New Valk as compared to your old Valk? what makes it better? what do you miss? be gentle, this crowd is a sensitive bunch.
