My current ride is a 1999 Valk Interstate that I have enjoyed riding. Thinking seriously of upgrading to the Wing. My last Wing was a 1999 model. Kinda hope I don't like the Wing but I don't see that happening. We'll see. :cool:

I am sure Honda had a good reason to discontinue making the Valk, but for the life of me I don't know what it was. I suggest you test ride the Wing - I did in 2008 and I own a 2008 Goldwing......:thumbup:

Several years ago, I went to test drive a Valkerie Interstate since the wife couldn't stand sport bikes or cruisers anymore and I loved the Valk!!! I made the mistake of test riding a Wing and loved it more!! Ended up getting a new 03 Wing and now on my 08 Wing. Best bikes on the planet!! Good luck!

I had a Valk and a Gl-1500 and rode both. Bought a 04 Wing and found that I didn't use the Valk nearly as often and ended up selling it.

"I am sure Honda had a good reason to discontinue making the Valk, but for the life of me I don't know what it was."

The Valkerie did not sell in large enough numbers to justify the inventory and support required.
