Well, I ride a 98 Tourer with 96K on it right now. I got it new. Sure do like it. Getting it ready for another big season. Should have it near both coasts and near both borders this year.

Sometimes I miss the ol' girl.

I put a lot of time and energy into that bike.

But when the BMW got here . . . the Valk sat around a lot.
Sure was a thrill to yank that throttle though.

I'm not sure if the company that made the exhaust and headers is still in business, but . . . what an awesome setup! It was so much better than the restrictive stock pipes. And it sounded like a muscle-car when you got on the throttle.

When I decided to sell it, a couple flew over from Germany to buy it, ride it around the US for a couple of weeks, and then park it at a family member's house here in the states.

Here it is the last time I saw it.

Damn! Great looking bike, even if it isn't a Harley.

What a great bike

I rode a Valk from DC to Canada about 6 years ago. Solid as a rock. My only complaint was the gas mileage SUCKED when it was all loaded down. I got about 25 MPG going through Montana with the wind and "kind of no speed limit"

I finally sold it because I had too many bikes, but if I had a two car garage ...
