1998 Honda Valkyrie F6 1500 Tourer
The Valkyrie is a true muscle-bike, withstanding the test of time!
Hands-down one of the best bikes ever built by any manufacturer! Paint scheme and chrome are timeless. This being the third one I've owned, I can attest that this is bike is exceptionally reliable and still has a showroom-floor appearance after nearly 20 years (erroneously got rid of the previous 2 bikes because they kept getting flats in brand new tires - Colorado roads are notorious for roofing nails during those years).
After suffering through 'Seller's Remorse' for months after getting rid of each one, I found a jewel of a Valkyrie and have cherished it ever since. Anyone who truly doesn't love a Valkyrie either hasn't spent time on one or just holds an extreme bias against foreign bikes. Honda's decision to discontinue this model is typical of Honda and is a major pitfall of theirs for us Honda enthusiasts. Brought it back recently, but nowhere near true to its heritage.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
