My New (To Me) 1999 Honda Valkyrie

I have been going mad, slowly, for 10 years without a bike.

It's mind-clearing, and therapeutic.

I rode Yamahas in my youth, had a Kawasaki for a year or two (see below), but I saw a 1999 Honda Valkyrie on Facebook Marketplace.

It was a great deal, and had low mileage for a 19-year-old power cruiser.

So...meet "Chooser."  As in, Chooser Of The Slain.



And here are a couple pics of the Boy and I, ten years apart.  In the first one, I'm on a Kawasaki Vulcan 900, and he's five years old.


And here he is on the back of my Valkyrie, now fifteen years old.  Time flies!



And here's a movie of it idling in my garage.  Forgive the twisting perspective of the camera.  ;)


Best,
JBR
