Harley Davidson ROAD GLIDE.. I can't sleep because of this!!


For the past few months, i've been dreaming to own a Harley Davidson bike.. Previously, i was really into Harley's 883 Iron.. been doing research on the denim - matte black 883 Iron..

But i have realised 883 Iron is not suitable for long distance ride.. although 883 Iron is slim and light, but it is lacked of comfort and luggage space for touring...

Now i'm drooling with Harley Davidson Road Glide.. it's absolutely fucking gorgeous!!

The Road Glide looks pretty similar with Street Glide but there are a lot differences between these two models..

Both models feature identical V-win 103 engine, fuel tank (23 liters of fuel), seat, luggage and exhaust pipes.. but not the huge front fairing..

Road Glide front fairing, a.k.a. Shark Nose Fairing, is held on the bike frame.. it has a set of two lamps, glove box and CD Player.. Since the Shark Nose fairing is attached to the bike frame, it does not turn when the handle bar is turned.. Hence, the side-mirrors are attached to the handle bar..

While the Street Glide front fairing, a.k.a. Bat Wing, is attached to its front fork / suspension.. it turns when the handle bar is turned.. it has a single head lamp and it symbolises the American- made touring motorcycles for over 40 years...

Since they are almost identical, i've read Street Glide owners have modified their Street Glide to have Road Glide's Shark Nose front fairing..

Since Road Glide fairing is attached to the bike frame, i've been told it handles easier and lighter than Street Glide..

Personally, i always love the design of Road Glide..
