This new Combination Analog Speedometer/Tachometer from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories monitors engine speed without adding a handlebar-mounted tach and features adjustable backlighting colors and bright LCD info screen.
Samson is known for quality aftermarket exhaust systems for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and they just added a system to their product line: the Samson Cross Under exhaust system.
The Cross Under is available for Harley-Davidson touring and Road King models, adding a sharp look and a powerful tone.
The new Rally Mirror Chrome FL Front Fender (P/N 59136-10, $449.95) from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories is an eye-popping complement to a Chrome Front End Kit (P/N 46371-08) or custom wheels.
The clean styling eliminates the front light, side medallions and fender skirt to provide an unobstructed sweep of chrome.
Road King, Street Glide, Road Glide
Motorcycle riding out on the west coast, we are enjoying two days in the saddle of the Harley-Davidson’s 2009 touring family. Giving us an opportunity to try the H-D Road King, Road King Classic, Street Glide and Road Glide, there are also a couple of big rigs along with the Electra Glide Standard and the Classic and Ultra Classic in the line up. All sharing the same Twin Cam 96 engine that has been with us since 2007, the big news for 2009 is an all-new chassis, while stylistically there are only a few changes.
For many of us, the traditional two-week summer vacation, like our first minibike, is a fond and distant memory. Reluctance to get away from the office, escalating highway traffic, and increasingly nightmarish air travel are among the numerous reasons we find ourselves living in post-vacation America. As a result, busy couples face the vexing issue of how to spend their ever dwindling down time.
