2008 Harley-Davidson CVOs First Ride
There's only 2,600 2008 Harley-Davidson CVO Dyna Glides out there, so if you're serious about owning a factory-customized Dyna, act now or kick yourself for not acting fast enough.
So how am I going to come up with $24,995 so I can buy me one of these bad boys?
The Dyna's handling was almost equal to the Springer's and better than the Road King's and Ultra Classic.
Aboard the '08 CVO Dyna, I liked my chances of outrunning the thunderstorm that was approaching from the northwest.
It only takes a quick glance at the Dyna's front spoiler to differentiate it from the Springer.
2008 Harley-Davidson CVO Dyna Super Glide
The '08 CVO Dyna Super Glide's front suspension has been lowered and the fork angle decreased to give the motorcycle sharper handling in the corners.
I found the Dyna's handlebar-mounted tach much easier to read than the tank-mounted Road King's.
The Road King's six-speed Cruise Drive transmission kept rpm within the cruising range even in top gear.
With a plush leather seat and comfortable upright seating geometry, the Road King is ready to roll for the long haul or simple short cruises to the local hangout.
I was impressed with the respnsiveness of the '08 Screamin' Eagle Road King's Electronic Throttle Control system. Simply roll on the throttle and hang on tight.
You can't help but feel like one-bad biker when you're ripping down the road on the latest, greatest rides Harley has to offer.
The Road King rumbled through the corners on its Road Winder forged aluminum wheels.
Style-wise, I liked the Springer the best, but for overall comfort and performance, the '08 Road King topped my list for 'Most Desirable CVO '08.'
A classically-styled bike and the Last Covered Bridge in Wisconsin - two slices of iconic American heritage.
I like the extra miles you'll get from the Road King's larger 6-gallon tank, but you've got to spread your legs extra-wide to straddle the beast.
The combination of the '08 CVO Road King's new ETC system and its powerful Twin Cam 110 cubic-inch engine enable this big tourer to roll out like its lither brethern, the Springer and Dyna.
The paint on the CVOs truly establish them as customs as much of the work is done one piece at a time by hand.
The Screamin' Eagle Road King comes equipped with the new Harley-Davidson Anti-Lock Braking System as a standard feature.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson CVO Road King has custom leather saddlebags to go along with its leather seat and backrest.
I like the classic look of the tank-mounted speedo dial but the tach is difficult to see when you're speeding down the highway.
Instead of breaking the bank buying the custom chrome parts one by one out of H-D's enormous parts catalog, go ahead and invest in a CVO which is cheaper than buying all the accessories individually.
The Springer's rigid-mounted frame and internal counter-balanced shafts cut down engine vibration to barely noticable levels.
The '08 CVO Springer is loaded with color-matched components, including its frame, swingarm, rigid fork, oil tank, headlilght bucket, muffler support bar, seat post and top triple clamp.
The '08 Softail Springer's front end has a new wide front fender with a restyled mounting bracket and strut and a bigger wheel than last year's.
Pictures fail to do the Springer's Inferno Orange with Fireburst Flames paint job justice. I never thought I would want to own an orange-colored vehicle, but I'd take one of these babies home in an instant.
With its new intake, cool front fender strut, a new 10-spoke forged aluminum front wheel, and custom Black Diamond and Smoked Candy Flames paint, this might just be the new 'Milwaukee's Best.'
Good thing it was slightly overcast during the photo shoot - the Springer's got enough chrome to blind you if the sun hits it just right.
Since everything else is chrome, I'm surprised Harley didn't make the oil tank chrome as well.
The '08 CVO Softail Springer has a cool-looking forward-facing Heavy Breather intake that gives it a claimed 5% spike in torque.
The aggressive styling of the 2008 Harley-Davidson Softail Springer screams 'Ride me - if you dare.'
Without the 850+ lbs of the Ultra to push around, the Twin Cam 110 engine turned the lighter, more nimble '08 CVO Dyna into a screamin' street machine.
If I just keep going, do you think Harley would notice just one bike missing?
The Ultra was designed with both rider and passenger comfort in mind and comes with a dual control leather heated seat with passenger backrest and complementary rider adjustable backrest.
The range of the 2008 CVO Ultra has been increased thanks to its larger six-gallon fuel tank.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide carries itself with class and provides optimal creature comforts for riders.
The 2008 CVO Ultra comes standard with Harley-Davidson's new ABS system.
The '08 Ultra Classic has a ribbed air cleaner cover with a Screamin' Eagle insert.
The Ultra King Tour Pak is color-matched and has carry-out saddlebags.
Chrome, chrome and more chrome, custom paint, high-end electronics and standard ABS establish the 2008 CVO Ultra as an attractive competitor in the luxury-touring market.
The Ultra Classic is ready for the long haul with its power-locking saddlebags, rear luggage compartment and rack.
2008 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide shows off its classic styling in front of Wisconsin's Last Covered Bridge.
The Ultra has a 40-watt CD/AM/FM/WB/MP3 Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon, a CB and intercom, plus standard XM Radio and an integrated navigation system.
With all the dials, for a second I thought I was behind the controls of the Enterprise. Beam me up, Scotty.
I cruised the Wisconsin countryside aboard an Ultra with the stylish 105th Anniversary Crystal Copper and Black Onyx paint scheme, but my wife liked the Copper Canyon and Stardust Silver combo more.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide got a new set of Brembos in front and back for 2008.
The Twin Cam 110 is Harley-Davidson's largest displacement mill to date, pumping out a brutish 1800cc with a claimed 115 ft-lb of torque at 3000 rpm.
The 2008 FXDSE Screamin' Eagle cut up the Wisconsin farm country thanks to its lowered front suspension and decreased fork angle.
The 2008 Screamin' Eagle Ultra Classic Electra Glide comes with all the bells and whistles you'd expect in a luxury-touring bike.
