I'll actually be in Decatur tomorrow at the Morgan County Bord of Education.  I have been working there on Mon / Tues for nearly 2 years now.

2006 FJR1300





This particular bike appears to have a custom seat.  That feature goes a long ways when it comes to comfort.

As for the Valk.  I think I saw one over at Allsport for sale a couple of days ago.

That's a pretty nice looking Valk, and a fair price on it.  59k miles is barely broke in  ;).

@Yankee Dog

That is a custom seat.  I realized after trying to find more info on it that the bike in the pic is not actually for sale.  It was an add for the seat.

So now it looks like I am leaning more towards either a FJR1300 or a Valkyrie.  I'm gonna miss that V-Twin rumble, but it's worth it to gain the ability to ride more and further especially 2-up when the wife decides to come along.

Remind me to show you the nickle trick if you come to see my bike.  You'll never look at a v-twin the same again!!   ;D

Confirmed. I have done it also. The nickel trick is not a custom add on to slowroads bike.

Hopefully I will be able to get out there tomorrow at or just before lunch time.  I had already planned on being at Danville High / Middle School tomorrow working on their wireless internet so it works out beautifully.

Danville high puts you about 4 miles from my house.  Give me a call and I'll get you directions.

Will do once I have a better idea what time I will be getting there.  Working in IT, you never know how long you are gonna be due to all the "Hey, can you"'s that seem to arise when you show up onsite, lol.

A member from the previous forum who has not returned for version 2.0, described the Valkerie as "riding a big stick of butter."

As for being a passenger on the back, I was told that someone who can't sleep on the back of a bike was heard snoring on the back of that very bike in the picture. I'm sure it was just a rumor, though 8)
