I've only owned my Valkyrie Tourer for about a week, but it's already taken me on a cople of nice rides - one through a part of the Canadian Rockies (about 350 km) and one trip down the middle of Alberta (about 250 km), and I am having a hard time believing how much I LIKE this bike. tONS of power, and a smooth shifting 5-speed transmission add to the pleasure. The previous owner changed out the stock exhaust for a set of truck stacks that add a very nice "growl". He also added Cobra rider and passenger floorboards - I prefer the OEM rider pegs; fortunately, they came with the bike, so they are now back where they belong. The stock windshield provides an amazing amount of protection and calm air. Better than the batwing I put on a previous bike.
this is a bike that will get looks, and comments, almost every time you ride it. People who know motorcycles appreciate the beauty of the exposed engine and the history of the Valkyrie; people who don't know anything about bikes just think its very "cool".
On the downside? The stock seat is going to have to go; Honda made some of the least comfortable cruiser seats in the world, but that would be my only complaint.
Chrome trim additions, truck stack exhaust, Show Chrome driving lights, heated grips, Hondaline luggage rack. Ordered a Mustang seat to rectify the one shortfall of this bike
