What's in my Garage? 1997 Honda Valkyrie Tourer

LIL TABASCO

My Name is Sam and I ride a 1997 Honda Valkyrie. I bought it in 2000 it was a one owner with less than 8000 miles. I call her Lil Tabasco because she is a hot little number. I fell in love with motorcycles when I was about 4 years old while visiting my Uncle Paul. He had an old Harley parked out in his front yard and I would sit on that thing and ride all over the country. I could hear the sound of the exhausts and feel the wind in my face even though the bike never moved I loved to shift the suicide shifter and press the foot clutch and twist the throttle. Boy was that fun. I sit back sometimes and just think about how much I enjoyed riding even then. I made a promise to myself that I would someday own a motorcycle and that I would take trips on it to see America.
I got my first bike at age 18, long story but my Dad was scared to death of them and vowed to never buy me a motorcycle and stayed true to his word. Up until I bought this Valkyrie I have never ridden over a couple hundred miles on a trip. Then in 2000 I had a heart attack so as you can imagine I got busy with my bucket list. I have logged about 65000 miles since then and plan to ride a lot more. I have been to all but 18 of the lower 48 states some of them two and three times and I plan to make all 48 on the same motorcycle. I have done 3 official Iron Butt rides and several unofficial ones. I have seen may beautiful parts of America and met a lot of people from all over the world in doing so. If by chance you should see me and Lil Tabasco flag us down we love making new friends.
