Rode alongside one of these yesterday - very nice looking bit of gear. Would love to ride one. Harley's version of the Valkyrie. I notice he talks immediately about the wind buffeting - I've always been impressed at how well the Valk deals with it even without a windscreen. Also the fat rear tyre - looks good BUT. Makes you realise the Valk is a rider's bike first and foremost.

"law abiding biker"....riding with no hands, one handed, speeding, etc. Perhaps he needs to change the name of his channel.

It's not illegal to ride with one hand. At least not where I am. After all, you are expected to use hand signals if your lights stop working.

It's cool... But right now Im enjoying the experience of riding a bike that sounds like a car, requires 2 radiators and I can start it with a penny on the valve cover and it'll stay there.. ;)

My first three bikes were all Honda.
Somewhere along the way I got sidetracked with Harley Davidson and Victory.
Now I've been smitten by the 1832cc flat six.
And...guess what?
I own two of them - a '14 Valk and a '16 F6B.
I'm going straight from this point forward.

I tested a new Harley 45 last year and it clattered my teeth so bad i had to keep my mouth clinched . then i find out that i have to bring it in at 600 miles and pay to have every bolt and nut on the bike re tightened along with the other service.
No thanks = Love my Valk

Which Victory did you own? I still have a XR and it's been a great bike and very comfortable. Just got the Valkyrie at the end of last year and still trying to get used to it, very different.

Two bikes...not three

I rode a Gunner from 2014 until last week - nearly 5 years. I sold her for cash, right before I picked up my new Valk.
Believe me...I really did not want to let her go. The Gunner was one of the best motorcycles I ever owned. Fun and fast.
Victory was quality!

But I only have room in my garage for one car and two bikes, not three.

:laugh: I have never seen anyone ever mention this about owning a new HD. I don't know what to think. Is this good or bad? You would think that they would offer this for free.
