[quote]I liked the valkyrie when they came out... I think they are no longer made, correct? Are the valkyries water-cooled? I'm assuming so.[quote]
Yes, Valkyries are water cooled. They are extremely nimble for their size and handle exceptionally due in large part to the radial tires. A real beast. They have proven to be just as durable as the GL1500 with the exception of the hot-rodders tearing the rear drive splines out at the motor output flange!
I know 2 that have done this and they have more than one "stupid gene" at work, if you know what I mean. GL1500 parts don't work either, from what I'm told.
