I was with my cousin at the Honda dealership when he was buying his 4 wheeler. They had a brand new 96 Valk sitting on the floor. I remember thinking "1520 cc? Who would ever need an engine that big on a motorcycle!" Now I'm trying to think of ways to justify why I need to upgrade to a Strat to my wife.
I test rode a Strat before finding a deal on a Roadie, I just done see enough difference in power to change. Now if its the retro looks I could see that but the difference in my 06 carbed R* and the 09 injected Strat seemed very minor.
Not trying to argue , but my well worked 1700 didn't hold a candle to my stock Liner. My Liner would stomp a hole in my Roadie.And it out handled it to boot.
Keeping the thread on track , the new Valk reminds me of Sam the eagle from the muppets.....
