Glad to be here. I started out with the usual 1/4 and move my way up to liter sports and now I just want a cruiser, something to take it a bit easy with that still is a bit sporty, the Valkeryire seems to be it!
Can't believe there is a site already out for the new Valkyrie. Looking to learn more about the is and help me make up my mind before comitting. I am liking the look with the lesser fairing compared to the F6B.
Good morning all. Just got my new 2014 Valkyrie, or F6C as it is called over here. Must have to say what a bike. Its presence is just awesome
. I traded in my Victory Highball for this beauty and not one regret. Having had numerous mainstream cruisers in the past this bike is a bit new for me, might need bit of time to get used to it, will have to go out riding more, well that's what I will be telling the wife. Hope I can call on you guys for any help and info in the future as no doubt there will be plenty to talk about. Thank you in advance and look forward to a great riding future
Hi everyone! I have been riding all types and brands of motorcycles for many years 40+ and one of those was a 1997 Valkyrie! I always loved that bike and kicked myself in the butt after I sold it. I have not bought a new 1014 Valkyrie yet, but I'm thinking about it very much. I presently ride a 2012 Victory Vision and I'm looking to go down in size a little bit. I enjoy your forum and receive valuable information here ! Thanks Denny
I live in France (Versailles). There are 2 months I have my F6C. I ride a motorcycle all year to go to my work. I also have a 1200 bmw rt when I find the weather not very exitante for F6C. Excuse my English using machine translation. The F6C is my tenth motorcycle since 1971.

Hello I'm Surfndad, also know as Ted. I have been riding since 1974, from a 250 Yamaha to the last three bikes a K1200RS BMW, a 2000 Valkyrie Interstate to our beloved F6C. I'm in Virginia Beach Va. two kids loving wife and hope to retire soon and start doing laps around the USA. Just found out that there are cruise liners that will load up your bike and take you around the south seas to enjoy riding in tropical ports.
My first bike was a Yamaha 250 for just a few hundred miles. Then I bought a Honda VFR750 new and rode it for 3 years. Then had a CBR900RR for several years. Total lifetime miles ridden maybe 30,000.
After not riding at all for a few years, I decided to try something different. My selection process kept coming back to the Valkyrie. I noticed many seasoned journalists commenting on how fun it is to ride.
Mine is the blue 2014. Picked it up 2 days ago. Sure the novelty has not worn off yet and for me it was a big purchase. Still it feels every bit the magic carpet ride I was hoping for.
Hello! I just picked up my 2014 Black Valkyrie 3 weeks ago and I'm happy to say that this machine is a beast! I currently own a 2009 Harley VROD Muscle which is now going to be my short distance bike. The Valkyrie rides more comfortable and agile on corners. I'm really enjoying riding this beast!!! Ride safe everyone!
I am a six year old rider. I have had since the beginning:
1999 Yamaha 650 Vstar - Loved - Not enough power for a 6ft 230+ person at highway speeds
1999 Honda Shadow ACE Tourer - Loved - Tank to small for long trips
2013 Kawasaki Venture - Not a big fan - It was just not for me, I loved all the creature comforts and it had plenty of power, but the ride was not what I was looking for.
And last and definitely not least is my New 2014 Honda Valkyrie. As many of you already know, this thing is an absolute beast!. When I test rode it, there was a permanent smile on my face that I am still wearing (on the inside of course). As its no surprise. This is the most powerful bike I have every ridden. Having a blast with it. Not digging the no windscreen and no bags, but that will be rectified but the weekend.
I live in the Kansas City, MO area and have a few riding buddies I can't wait to get in a ride or two with.
I hAve a vf750c . I bought it in 1982 and I think is (for me) a fantastic motorcycle! I have also a 2009 Hd softail heritage classic. It is heavy and the engine is not comparable to the modulability of vf4cylinder engine.
I've read a lot about f6c:it has a great motor, its weight is the same of the heritage and also I hope is better in short mountain loops....I will test it and want to hear in forum if f6c has defects. How do you think in the easy driving in short loops? Is it good also for passenger?
