Harley-Davidson Electra Glide
State of the Art Features
Introduced in 1999, the twin cam 96 cubic inch 1584cc engine is tried and true. The same reliability that's powered Harley's for nearly a century is packaged with leading technology, comfort, and design. The ride offers good maneuverability at low speeds, comfortable high-speed cruising, smooth takeoff, and refined acceleration. The chrome and paint job is second to none and will attract stares and glances from passer-bys as you trek through your journey. Additional state-of-the-art features include a 20-watt-per-channel, four-speaker AM/FM/cassette or CD player stereo system and a rear control for the passenger, a factory alarm, standard hard saddlebags, a trunk, Weather info, full size engine guards, floorboards, and a heel/toe shifter.
The Electra Glide has made more silver screen appearances than perhaps any other bike in history. It's iconic American appearance has been immortalized on camera in Police Academy, The Departed, Ghostbusters, In the Line of Fire, Point Break, Analyze This, and Me Myself and Irene, as well as hit TV shows Miami Vice, Dragnet, CHiPs, Twin Peaks, and The Sentinel.

My Bike of Choice
I’m a big guy 6’4” and the EG is a big bike. But don’t let the size fool or intimidate you. While yes it is the largest bike in the Harley fleet it is well balanced it performs and handles well. I like having the Stereo and cruise control. Also the tour Pac allows for easy storage of items I am taking along on the trip. My wife loves the large princess seat on the back. Sometimes I catch her dosing off on long rides.
