Harley-Davidson Street Glide

I’ve always had a soft spot for Harley, so I was really excited to find out that I’d be testing a bike with a Milwaukee-Eight, their first new big-twin engine for 17 years. I’ve got some tours planned, along with an experiment to see how much power we can get out of that hulking 1700cc motor.

    While I’ve been enjoying riding the Harley-Davidson Street Glide I’ve had on test, I’d not really gelled with it. I’ve clocked up well over 5,000 miles on it now but most of that has been commuting,...

    Harley-Davidson Street Glide: 2000 miles in
