2010 CVO Street Glide real-road test and more

This week on the Motorcycle Radio Network, Ultimate Motorcycling joins the Blockhead boys for a real-time road test of the "more paint, more polish, more power and more performance Harley-Davidson CVO Screamin’ Eagle Street Glide.

They give us the rundown on how the "biggest and baddest Harley they have ever ridden’ feels, the acceleration that comes from that 110" factory hot-rodded v-twin, the smooth shifting 6-speed transmission and the "sport bike feel" that comes from the chopped windshield and custom-painted fairing. How does it look? Well… It would seem that our tester can’t answer that because he forgot to bring a clear helmet shield and it was already dark in California during the test. He’s a shoe-in for full-time Blockhead status! You can listen to our entire test of the custom-built 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHXSE CVO Street Glide here.

Also this week, BMW has pulled the wraps off a showbike that may give hints to a new flagship for their line. The Concept 6 is an incredible BMW has pulled the wraps off a showbike that may give hints to a new flagship for their line. The Concept 6 begins with a shrink-wrapped inline-6 cylinder engine and moves outward with cutting edge bodywork and the sexiest exhaust system ever! Check out the BMW Concept 6 story and pictures at Ultimate Motorcycling here.

In racing news this past week, Ben Spies wraps up a dream first year in world competition with a 7th place finish in Valencia on the Tech 3 Monster Racing Yamaha (wearing Sterilgarda colors). His unbelievable finish clinched 5th place status for his future teammate Colin Edwards. He followed it up this week in the final MotoGP test session with a very strong performance (4th fastest overall) working to adjust his riding style to the motorcycle. Here at the Motorcycle Radio Network, we can’t wait for next season! Ultimate Motorcycling has the video review of the race here.

Thanks for checking us out this week, and we’ll be back live each and every Saturday night at 9 PM Eastern Time.
