That's funny that you said that! I've always thought the rear view of the V was like the Lambretta 125 scooter I had in the late '60s. The "hips" are very similar from that angle.
I truly believe that you are right only because there are ZERO newer Valks around here. I'm not looking for any and don't care if I look like a fat ass on a scooter from the rear view.The first time you see someone up ahead riding a Valkyrie it shocks you.
