My friend (on the Valkyrie) and I (on the FJR) had a fun day at the drag strip. I finally broke into the 10's and my friend finally exceeded a 100mph trap speed.
FJR best run: 10.894s @ 126.76mph (seen from the Valkyrie in the last section of this video)
Valkyrie best run: 13.073s @ 100.51s (not caught on video)

Honda Valkyrie Nickel Test
A good friend of mine said he could
balance a nickel on the valve cover
of a Honda Valkyrie....start it...
rev it up....and turn it off.....
without the nickle falling over.
I didn't believe it until I saw it,
not once but 3 times...and yes that
is a real nickle.

TBR's Odin - King of all Valkyries
Back in 1997 Two Brothers Racing thought it would be cool to get some real
horsepower out of
a Honda Valkyrie...so we slapped our Exhaust system and a couple of Superchargers on one. Filmed at LA County Raceway
with Kent Kunitsugu doing the riding. Sorry for the poor quality but the
raw footage was lost to the passage of time...
