The 2009 Tri Glide gives riders who might be intimidated by a big bike a chance to confidently grab the handlebars and go.

Tip 1 for riding a trike - keep your feet up while turning or the back tire will roll right over your ankle.

The 2009 Street Glide was a blast to ride with the new upgrades to the touring chassis.
