Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Tony, that's a beautiful bike! I've never ridden one, but if I was looking for a cruiser, that would be it. The wife sure would be more comfortable!

I loved the "nickle test" they showed on Corbin's Ride On. They balanced a nickle on it's side on the cylinder head of a Valk, then started the engine and revved it up. The nickle moved a little, but stayed balanced on it's side. That is one smooth motor. Nice bike.

Thats a nice bike Tony,

Those Valk's seemed like a nice compromise between the wings and a regular cruiser.

I just put on a set of Dually highway pegs on mine Sunday but havn't road tested them yet...

I need to replace my speakers this year .. how do you like the boston acoustic's ??

They are great. Still no bass in them but they are very clear and very loud.
