Sitting on the Road Glide Special, it’s immediately comfortable and appealing. The shark-nosed fairing makes for an impressive mounting for the dashboard components and smoked low-windshield. You might notice a switch that allows you to open and close a vent just below the windshield, which is part of the Rushmore-sourced Splitstream fairing design. It doesn’t take long to remind yourself that you’re on a Harley-Davidson. The High Output Twin Cam 103’s starter has the distinctive aggressive sound, and the bike roars to life, telling you that you are on a special machine. No other manufacturer makes starting the bike a dramatic statement, and it’s one I look forward to on every ride.The front end is secure with good feedback, and that’s a huge improvement over earlier editions. You can corner with confidence, and the 30+ degrees of lean angle mean there’s plenty of clearance. As usual, the Harley-Davidson branded Dunlop tires are flawless in feel and performance within their intended use.
