All I can say, is this..
Val-RUNE...oh...black on silver..:)
04------1000 miles even on her when she got signed..
And in case youre wondering...21,550.

Is it worth it?
I dunno....is upgrading from a Yugo to a Ferrari worth it?

Oh, it's definitely sexy as hell. I'm torn between it and the Road Star Warrior. But, giving the brass balls of a flat six and all the digital enhancements, I think I'd probably take the Honda over the Yamaha.
Sadly, my V45 might be on it's last legs. I started her up last Sunday after a long sleep. Cleaned the carbs, etc. Battery was dead, so I spent a good 40min. trying to pop it. Gave up and jumped it. Hopped in the shower since it was like 85 degrees out. I figured I'd grab a quick shower, hop on the bike and go for a cruise to stretch it out and charge the battery. (I need a new battery anyway; the current one is over 2yrs. old.)
Anyway, I hop out of the shower and my roommate is going nutz trying to get my attention. Poor lil' V45 is puking coolant from the overflow. The idiot killed it before I had a chance to look at it or hear it. He tells me it was making a nice racket. (I'm hoping it's just the valve tick that I'd been noticing.) If it's dead, I guess I'll be parting it out or selling it to someone for a restore or to a shop. <sigh>
I've been eyeing more power and a bigger bike for a long time now anyway, but it would have been nice to have a second bike for the other roommate who rides. (The one who totaled his 1100 after 2wks.)
And that's the news on the V45 front. <sniff>
S'far as the Val-Rune goes, I like the blue, but the black and silver is definitely sexy. Or even all chrome. If you're saying you got one, I'm totally totally jealous.
