2015 Harley Road Glide HelibarsFor 2015, Harley Davidson made significant changes to the Road Glide, but didn’t address the stock handlebar’s less-than-ideal wrist angle.
This is why HeliBars designed the multi-adjustable Horizon XP Performance Handlebar, a direct replacement for the bike’s original bar.This patented design optimizes riders’ wrist angles so they can more easily support their weight. Heli is the only handlebar manufacturer that offers three planes of adjustability, resulting in superior comfort. Made from DOM tubing with pivots CNC machined from solid, 6061 billet aluminum, the bars offer increased comfort and control. Made in the USA, they utilize the stock control clamps, accept heated grips and are torqued down using the highest quality hardware.Defining Features

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
