Harley-Davidson® Road Glide®
The Harley-Davidson Road Glide gives you all the power and glory of the HD touring tradition along with impressive standard features to make your trip as easy comfortable as possible. This is the bike for logging serious miles, and you’ll be thrilled and amazed at how well such a monster can handle. The HD Road Glide is a great touring motorcycle with all the Harley-Davidson styling.


At 762 pounds, the Harley Road Glide is a middleweight monster with a 1450cc, air-cooled, 45-degree V-twin engine. The 5-gallon tank typically provides fuel economy in excess of 50mpg, perfect for long hauls. The ride is smooth and comfortable, with an effortless clutch, air shocks, and a cushy saddle. Add to that frame-mounted fairing, roomy saddlebags, and the overall responsiveness of the powerplant, and you’ve got a great tourer that doesn’t feel anywhere near its actual weight at speed.


Debuting in 1998, the Harley-Davidson Road Glide brought back the frame-mounted Tour fairing HD had introduced in 1980 on the famous Tour Glide. Other manufacturers have tried to capture some of this market segment in recent years, but the FLTR Road Glide has the history and expertise of Harley-Davidson, making it the undisputed king. In fact, the Road Glide is considered by many to be the ideal touring motorcycle, in terms of both aesthetics and functionality.

best touring bike I have ever ridden

took a little getting used to the fixed fairing, but after I got used to it, I wouldn't change for anything else, and would recommend it to anyone who has never ridden a fixed fairing bike
