Good Afternoon To All,

I just finished detailing my 2001 Valkyrie, about 38,000 miles on her, I am the original owner - thought folks might enjoy seeing some photos.

I used Mothers Step 1 Polish, followed by Mothers Step 2 Micro-Glaze Polish and then used Klasse Sealant to finish the job.

Good Evening To All,

Thank you for your kind comments, I appreciate all of them. grin

To Reddy45, the Valk engine is 1520cc, based on the Goldwing engine, but there are 6 carbs instead of 2 that I believe the GW had, and the cams are higher lift.

This bike does everything well, great for touring, handles in the curves, low center weight so the bike doesn't feel top heavy, it was rated I believe #5 in best 60-0 stops, huge torque, and as smooth as and engine can be.

After 17 years of ownership, every time I ride it, it puts a smile on my face.

Very Nice!

I always wanted to ride one side-by-side with the equivalent Goldwing, just to compare for fun!

For some reason, I feel like GW is a cousin, but definitely completely different animal.

This thing seems like a muscle bike laugh

Makes me miss my 2000 Valk Interstate. I put a lot of miles on her; traded in 2006 on a GL1800. Really miss the ol' girl at times. Great blend of power and style and reliability. Easy to work on. Etc.


Darn you, sir. Now I want one again.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
