I think the RUNE (Valkyrie) was a complete flop. To retro and far afield from what the Valk really was. Going back to a standard might have been an even bigger marketing error to them. Shame.

Yes she (my bride) does love the Valk as long as she doesn't have to ride it. You see I was a bit too aggressive on our ride to Dawson City last summer. The frost heaved roads are quite bumpy and every now and then a real butt buster arrives (of course unannounced). I got speeding along far faster than was comfortable for her and after arriving home she decided I would sell it. Well my second option (for me) was removal of her seat. Now she just rides the back of the BMW and she is still smiling and looking

forward to our rides. Plus the Valk is all mine!

Seafoam, NAPA?
