Riding Harley-Davidson Motorcycles in Denver
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
Greetings Motorcycle-USA patrons, it’s your friendly motorcycling pal Adam here. We just finished our first day on Harley-Davidson’s fresh two-zero-ten model line-up. If you don’t know what’s new be sure to check Bryan’s 2010 Harley-Davidson First Look
article. Amongst people my age, (I just turned 30), Harley-Davidson motorcycles generally get a bad rap for being under-performing bikes.
But after spending a few hundred miles in the saddle of a variety of the Motor Companies new machines, I have to admit that when ridden aggressively, the level of outright performance not to mention the sheer fun factory is pretty high. Sure these bikes don’t flood your brain with the same endorphin rush as a Suzuki GSX-R1000
sportbike but they do have enough oomph to keep you entertained. Even better is some of the creature comforts that bikes like the new FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited offer. Cruise control, 80-watt Harmon/Kardon stereo and even heated grips which definitely come handy when you’re riding at frosty Rocky Mountain elevation like we did this afternoon.
But perhaps one of the best attributes of this genre of motorcycle is that even after an entire day of riding at speed, we’re not even fatigued in the slightest. You usually can’t say the same when riding on other brands of motorcycles for eight hours. Make sure to check back soon as we'll have our full '10 Harley-Davidson motorcycle review.
