I have a chance - have been offered first chance - there are about 5 buyers in line for this bike. I don't need it, can't afford it right now • but I really want it.

I have not seen the bike - 550 miles away but a trusted friend got me into this opportunity for death. He knows the owner and has ridden the bike. He wants it but just can't swing it right now - between jobs. He says it is a peach.

1999 Valkyrie - from what I have been told owner is a meticulous and anal owner. Bike has 3900 miles on it.


He is asking $6900.00 for the bike.

Everyone please tell me I don't need this bike. Tell me it is a waste of money.

No, really - what does everyone think? Is this a feasable price for this bike? Have wanted a Valk ever since I started reading about them. Been aboard one and rode and performed like a dream.

If I buy this my wife will kill me, so it will be up for sale again soon ..

You definately do not need that big tug! It is too much to spend on that bike. Those Valkyries are way overrated, and over priced. Just put it out of your head......Now, what is the guy's number where he can be reached at?

That's a pretty old picture of the bike. U sure it still looks like that? And trust your wife, I'm sure she will give you the answer you should go by, not ours... :harder:

The guy on the bike is sure ugly!
But what a beautiful bike!
Go ahead and buy it..., uh, what is your wife's name?
I'd like to talk to her about the bike since she will be having an estate sale.:D

I would say you already answered your own question. :bleh:
I'm not a big fan of those so it's pretty easy for me to say "don't do it" & "pick your battles wisely"
(Be sure your wife knows how to sign in here on the Cafe so she can make a "For Sale" post so we can get first dibs when all your bikes go up for sale,lol)

I really & truely can't afford that, so you go ahead and buy it. When your wife sees to your untimely demise, I imagine she will sell it for a mere pittance just to spite, THEN, I can afford it. So please buy it. How's that for support/advice?

If you love and want it that much, find a way to get it done, then wear body armor and hide the bullets to all those new guns you got :D

I could pass on that Valk, but if it was the Interstate version of the Valk I would be in the same boat you are in, they are really very smooth bikes, I like the Runes too, but I need practical bikes (for the weak excuses I will throw at my wife) and as Bad A$$ as I think the Runes are, they aren't much more than bike night bikes IMHO:stirpot:

I'll send you a check for $2000 right now If you put my name on the title as well, so when You mysteriously disappear, I can just pick up my new ride. :) lol

If you have been married for any length of time you know it's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission. BUY IT!
