Pretty nice getting to test ride all those bikes. I've found my perfect bike for the foreseeable future. The Valkyrie is smooth, quiet, and great handling (for a cruiser, I have no idea about sportbikes). Needed a windshield for hwy riding and a little plushier seat but really this bike does everything well and that's what I needed because I can't afford to have multiple bikes. I get the same, or even slightly better gas mileage than the m50, but it has a bigger tank so I get more range.
