Can You Figure The Road Dog Out? Look Closely But Be Careful. If He Growls....Back Up Slowly.



Have you figured him out yet? You can sort of say he's a Mutt, but personally speaking, I can tell you he has way more character than a purebred. He started his pup life as a 1997 Honda Valkyrie Tourer. Read on.......




His previous owner felt that he wanted the amenities of the Valkyrie Interstate so he provided the Road Dog with the Interstate Top Rear Trunk and Taillights as well as the cushy rear passenger seat setup that people love on the Interstate. But he didn't stop there.




He hated the "CB Ready" that everybody talks about on most Interstates and he actually provided the Road Dog with a Honda CB system. He also added an amplifier, fancy speakers, and an I-Pod hookup so you can listen to music either through the speakers or through wired helmets if you have an I-Pod


He decided to match the comfort of the passenger seat for the rider with the most amazing rider seat I have ever felt. I have had bikes with Corbin Seats and Mustang Saddle Seats and they're really good. This seat is in a world by itself. Add to that the comfortable rider backrest and you better be careful you don't "fall asleep at the wheel".





He adorned the Road Dog with a beautiful airbrush painted picture on the tank. Sorry about the cigar...lol. I personally hate to see my Road Dog smoking a cigar but he was brought up by the previous owner. So I guess I'll have to put up with it....lol


The previous owner added so much more. Bunches and bunches of billet everywhere and I mean everywhere. Fender dressing. Cruise control. Tank bra. Cobra billet light bar with retro-look hooded lights. The Road Dog has it all. And he fed him well with Synthetic Oil from day 1. The Road Dog is still a Pup with only 27,670 miles at the time of this posting. There may be a few more miles when you call as the Dog must be walked once in awhile. He will still be growling with 200,000 miles if I take proper care of him......WHICH I ALWAYS DO.


Here's the heart of the beast. I don't use conventional "heartworm" medicine. Only synthetic for this big dog.


Here's some of his other features. Had to take these pictures while he was sleeping. He can be really grumpy about having his picture(s) taken.





Oh...Did I fail to mention that when the Road Dog Barks....he does so with Twin Air Horns. Woof.



Also, he has Progressive Brand Air Shocks in the rear to keep his paws firmly planted on the ground and for the rider's comfort. He also has a extremely rare center stand for oil changes, cleanup, etc.
