Looking to see if there are any other Valkyries in my neck of the woods here in the USA. Is anyone from Wisconsin/U.P. of Michigan?

Sorry, HValkrider - I grew up in the midwest (Ohio) but I'm in central Massachusetts now.
I've run across one 1500 (Connecticut) and one 1800 (New Hampshire) Valk since early 2018 when I bought mine but that's it!
When I bought it there were only three in all of New England for sale - New York, Maryland, and New Hampshire.
The Goldwing Wing Ding is in Nashville next August, I'm considering making that trip.
(InZane is a bit further than I'm likely to travel to)
I checked MeetUp but didn't see anything Valkyrie specific within 100 miles of Milwaukee.
I'm following one of the Facebook Valk groups, maybe that's another way to reach riders in your area?

Thanks for sharing the Goldwing Wing Ding, I haven't heard of that before! That's exciting because I've been wanting to ride the roads in the area of "The Tail of the Dragon" ever since I bought my Valkyrie. I will be attending that, one of these years for sure! What Facebook group are you following?

Nice! I live in Escanaba, MI. Myself & two of my colleagues (from the Fond Du Lac, WI area) actually have a ride planned on September 28th and I'm meeting them in Fond Du Lac. If you would like to join us for a days ride pm me for more details!

A group of 1500cc Valkyrie's are going to Copper Harbor Michigan that weekend also.

Yes! That's what we were thinking too - hitting Tail of the Dragon, Smoky mountains, Blue Ridge, etc.

Facebook group is just called "Honda 1800 Valkyrie"

I've been trying to ascertain if there are/were any Valkyrie owners in my area...DMV, DC/MD/VA for a while now. I did meet a guy in Bowie with a Honda Rune, but that's it. I've since joined this "TONIT" app and met 3 Valkyrie owners in Maryland and DC so far...who ARE NOT on this forum!!!

I'm in the Chicago area. It takes at least an hour to get to any decent road.

most everywhere US and Canukistan. mehico is off limits, too many drugs n guns to dodge.
I was just up Mich last week. trying to get a ride on this big Badger boat across that little puddle. Ludington to Manitowak. Tuesday some bigass storm was blowing and they cancelled my boat ride . this Badger boat is a 410 foot boat, 7 stories tall. and they are going to let little 18foot waves stop them? so I rode north to Traverse was going go over the big bridge. folks said they wont let you ride over today, too windy. I was trying to get to my dads old cabin in the kewanaw near Nisula. hmm, so I went back south and rode the Natchez trace again. and yeah they had this memorial park named after me in my honor behind the hotel Ludington
