The Honda Valkyrie Pages 2
The Honda Valkyrie Pages
I started this blog as a place to post the Valkyrie articles that I've collected since I was introduced to my Fat Lady on April 1st, 2012.
I'd been away from motorcycling for a good number of years and had never even heard of the Honda Valkyrie. After I was introduced to mine, which I purchased on the spot, I began my search online for information about this most awesome of machines.
What I found was just a few on-line articles at the websites of a couple motorcycle magazines, a few blogs posted by Valkyrie owners extolling the awesomeness of their Valkyries, and the website of the Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club.
What I was searching for was unbiased, informative, indepth information about this new motorcycle of mine, that I later learned was so good that it was voted "Cruiser of the Decade" by a major motorcycle publication, which, I might also add, is, to my knowledge, the only motorcycle to ever be awarded that Title.
So, in my search for articles and information about my very own "Cruiser of the Decade", I started collecting back issues of various motorcycle magazines, which you'll find here on "The Honda Valkyrie Pages." Taken together, these articles paint a picture that makes it easy to see why the Honda Valkyrie is consistantly ranked as one of the best motorcycles ever built.
I consider these articles to be the common heritage of everyone who's been fortunate enough to own one of these awesome motorcycles, and, everyone who's looking for information about the Honda Valkyrie...

In "The Honda Valkyrie Pages 2", you'll find many of the video's, PDF's, Links, ect, for some of the stuff I've found to help keep this mechanical marvel running and looking as great as she deserves to be.
This site is my attempt to gather these posts from various corners of the web and make them easily accessable from one location. I will be adding to them as time allows, and as I find more stuff that should be here. ( Currently Under Construction )
The information in these pages is freely available on the web, so feel free to browse and use whatever you find. All links are underlined and open in a new window.
These postings are by no means exhaustive, and if you've got a file or link that's not here, I would love to have it and possibly add it to this collection.
A special Thank You to all the members of the Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club for all their hard work in making so much of this information available, and for helping me learn how to keep my own Fat Lady on the road, and to all the Valkyrie fans around the world who refuse to let one of the best motorcycles ever built fade into the pages of history.
