As I'm sure many of you know, these motors are basically a beefed up version of the Gold Wing powerplant that is famous for going 150-200K miles and still be running strong.
And with only 23173 original miles at the time of this posting, this beautiful 2000 Honda Valkyrie Tourer will provide years and years of riding pleasure.
And this particular 2000 Honda Valkyrie Tourer was given way better maintenance than most.
The 2 timing belts were replaced about 6 months ago along with the front fork seals.
The timing belt replacement is amazingly important yet most people don't even know this. If you lose a timing belt while riding most motorcycles, it is virtually guaranteed that you will ruin the motor. The belts are presumed to be good for 100,000 miles but that doesn't take time into the equation and the probability that the belts will dry out under normal usage. So this is something you will not have to worry about again for a long time on this bike.
Check out the stylish Gold Plating on the swing arm cover and the engine manifold and valve cover screws. Looks great and a fairly expensive touch that you won't have to mess with.
How about the red engine light display. The pictures taken of it are daytime and don't begin to do it justice. Looks great at night...amazing actually. Makes the whole bike look like its surrounded with a red aura and of course you don't have to have it on unless you want to. There is an on/off switch fairly near the ignition switch for this purpose.
It has some incredibly nice High Density Front Running Lights which look really sharp and of course add safety as they help you see better and help others see you better.
It also has a nice manual cruise control to take some of the pressure off your wrist on those longer rides.
The bike has never been dropped or down.
And of course the optional backrests for both the rider and passenger make for a more comfortable ride and both riders smiling at the end of that long ride.
The rear tire is in good shape having been replaced about 2 years ago. The front tire has more wear and will probably need replacement at the end of this riding season.
THE BIKE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. THANKS.
