Yep! Experienced that many times!Thanks! One of funnest things about this bike was waving to HD riders. As I'm sure most of you have experienced, some of them wave back and some of them stick their nose up in the air and ride by. With this bike, the guys that wouldn't think of waving back at a Honda, started to wave and then, as you got close, you could see the confusion on their face when they realized there were cylinders hanging out of each side .
Back in 1998-99 we entered the Valk in a bike show (had the fairing on then). It was about 90% Harleys. I did have a few curious guys asking where the fairing came from (60's vintage FLH). Then we won first place in the "Asian" class. I was going to ask them "since when is Ohio in Asia?", seeing as how the Valks were built in the Marysville, OH and have "Made in USA" stamped right on the engine. But being surrounded by Harley guys with an attitude, I decided it was best not to!
