I was not a fan of the 2000ish Valkyrie I rode. But if that's what you want, there seem to be really nice and clean ones for $6,000 all day long.

I do like the look of the new ones.

I ended up with the YZF. Paid less than $4,000 it was very clean.

Ended up getting snow and rain so my maiden voyage was cold and fairly short.

I think the radiator fan is kaput. It does not come on when car is idling and her temp goes up too much.

It is also due for timing belt and the associated items replaced at that time.
