Hi all
Had my 2014 F6C just under 3 months now and so pleased with her. I've been busy in the meantime with fairly standard mods which I'm sure are not to everyones taste. From the front then, fog lights, Honda tall screen, bar heater, gear indicator, Corbin Gunfighter and grab handles chromed to match the tank top.
For some local touring I've created a very basic rear rack using the grab handles (removed) holes for support to take my lightweight, rainproof and easily removable soft luggage.
I particularly enjoy the comfortable riding position and what an engine - it never seems stressed and so willing at whatever speed.
Of course, in the UK they are rarer than hen's teeth so I reckon they are probably the best bike you're never likely to see!!
Bring on the miles of smiles.:)

Congrats, wishing I'd gotten a red one too now. I have the blue but I'm sick of this color.
How hard was installing the gear indicator and which one did you get? I'd be interested in one of those if it isn't too difficult or pricey.

Nice one, I just got back from a 700 odd K ride and am already looking forward to the next one. I have had the Valk now since Jan 2015, about 36000k of Saturday riding on it and I think I like it more and more each time. I also really like the fact that I have only seen about half a dozen in the wild in that time. Love it or hate it there is always "wtf is that?" :D

Hiya and the gear indicator was a Glpro from HealTech Electronics.The cost was £99 with £40 for the holder so bout $180 all in. I'm a bit of a numpty with electronics so had it dealer fitted though it's supposed to be straightforward. Thing to remember is it only shows a number with the clutch out so when changing down through the gears (hoping to avoid the dreaded 1st) then it just displays a dash which some might find a problem. I find it useful and wonder why it couldn't have been original equipment.
