From its special shifter to its custom chrome brake pedal, My 2000 Valkyrie Interstate leaves nothing to the imagination. It's strong and quiet, and looks great.
Also note the custom lighting on the sidebags. Looks great and really ads to visibility for safety purposes.
And the "BRAKEAWAY" manual cruise control was a $250 addition installed and eliminates wrist strain on those longer rides. Looks good too.
Even has a GPS (NOT SHOWN)
Also Note the sidebag luggage racks and the luggage rack on the top of the Tourpack. Also the studded seats look great.
And note the custom rear speakers which are totally functional and look great.
Mileage on the clock is a low 47499 at the time of this posting. Miles may go up a bit as I continue to ride it occasionally.
Remember, these bikes are famous for going over 200,000 miles and still be running strong. This baby is barely broken in.

This particular Interstate has Kuryakyn handgrips, and extra chrome all over. Everytime you look you find another piece you hadn't noticed before
Even the oil filter and horn have chrome covers as well as the brake calipers...incredible, and there are chrome fender skirts on the rear of both fenders.
Both tires are new Dunlop Elite 3 Radials and the rear brake pads are brand new. This bike is ready for you to take cross country. It needs nothing.
