If the man who spearheaded the development of the Honda Valkyrie hadn't died, that bike would still be produced. As a proud owner of the best cruiser ever made, my 44 years of riding say that it would have whipped all the latest contenders. If you get a chance to ride one, you will see what I am talking about.

I have a chance to ride one whenever I want, and I pass every time. There is a reason it isn't made any more, and it ain't cause somebody died.

You pass every time because you are afraid it will show up your present ride for what it is...an antique, underpowered, overpriced lemming machine.

Oh, good god. Let's not pretend the Valk's sh!t didn't stink. It was a cool cruiser and concept. But it wasn't a groundbreaking machine. I liked it because it was a Goldwing without all the extra crap or weight.

Wow. I didn't know that a Bandit1200 was a lemming machine.

Yup. It's true. Every time I tell people I have a motorcycle, the first thing they ask is, "Is it a Bandit 1200?".
