I had a 99 valkyrie interstate,went to sturgis in 00 and saw Paul Yaffe's customized dresser and it inspired me to lower my bike,take the trunk off,put a solo seat on,a standard valkyrie taillight and cut my windshield down.It looked awesome but rode terrible,from then on that was my "daytona setup"when i got home the trunk and stock windhield went back on

The look of a harley with the smooth performance of a honda six is a desireable goal but i dont think its one that honda will aim for

According to a Honda rep at Daytona a few years back, the Valk was suppose to attract HD riders. It did not, it attracted Wing riders, hence the end of it. I owned a 98 standard, bought it new rode it for over 100k and loved every minute of it. If Honda came out with an 1800 Valk, I would be on it in a heartbeat.
