Hi to all. New owner of 2014 Valkyrie (blue). It is one they found in containers or held onto and decided to sell them much cheaper than MSRP.. almost half..!!! Midlife crisis? Maybe, but if that is true I should live to be 120..!!! I am almost 60 and not owned a motorcycle since 1981. My Kawasaki 750 LTD was taken out by driver that turned in front of me. I received broken elbow, mangled toes , broke some teeth but healed up ok (full face helmet). Rode a few since and last year went on a ride with friend, him on a Harley street glide and me on his Kawasaki 750. 60 mile trip and I had a blast...!!!! Have to admit I was apprehensive about riding the bike but soon was chasing his Harley. I have grown quite a bit since 1981 and buddy told me I looked like gorilla on a scooter and I was having a time keeping up with his street glide. Anyhow, figured this would be a good place to get and share information and experiences on the Valkyrie.
