FLSTSE CVO Review
The brand-new 2010 Harley-Davidson Softail Convertible unseats the classically styled Springer as the Softail platform’s CVO representative. A kind of high-functioning multiple personality disorder with turn signals, the Convertible’s conceit is both simple and shrewd.
High-Performance Twin Cam 103
The 2010 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Limited is a new premium touring motorcycle that offers enhanced performance and features, plus distinctive styling upgrades, that make it the new king of the Grand American Touring experience.
8.0 S/S Plug Wires Provide 5 Times More Spark for Fuel Injected Harley & Buell.
The newest addition to the ACCEL Spark Plug wire lineup is the 8.0 S/S for Fuel Injected Harley Davidson applications. These new custom fit spark plug wire sets feature an extra thick 8mm silicone jacket and silicon insulation. The state of the art Ferro-Spiral Wound Magnetic Suppression core eliminates electrical "leakage" or RFI interference that interrupts electronic ignitions and doesn’t effect the Delphi® fuel injection systems found on many Twin-Cam® engines.
Roam in Chrome
Harley’s influential Super Glide began life in 1971 as the result of Willie G. Davidson’s Frankensteinian grafting of the Sportster’s slinky front end to the muscular frame and powertrain of the Electra Glide. Willie G’s chopper-inspired cut-and-paste resulted in the birth of the (seemingly) oxymoronic “factory-custom” genre. For customers looking for a trick ride with a factory warranty and without a hefty aftermarket accessory tab, the Super Glide hammered a persuasive power chord that is still ringing throughout the industry.
Bobbed and Slammed
The Harley-Davidson Sportster hit the Big Five-O this year, and the senior-most Harley nameplate is showing its age. Graying and sedate compared to the big Twin-Cam 96 powered studs roaring out of Milwaukee these days, the middle-aged Sporty has been in need of a wardrobe consultant and a handful of Viagra for some time. Fortunately, the brooding, black-clad Nightster has swaggered into the Sportster’s Golden Jubilee, fashionably late and looking for trouble.
Nostalgia That Works
I can admit it without apology–I love the look of the Harley-Davidson springer front suspension. When it comes to establishing a retro styling for a motorcycle, a pair of external springs in the vicinity of the steering stem is tough to beat. Never mind that Harley rediscovered the springer in 1988 after a 40-year hiatus; the exploitatively mechanical front suspension has tremendous nostalgia-invoking power.
