Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® rentals in Fort Lauderdale

Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide®

La Electra Glide est considérée par les bikers comme une icône en matière de confort et de style. Facilement identifiable par son carénage avant et ses larges sièges en cuir, cette machine de 395kg fait partie de l'imposante gamme Touring de Harley-Davidson. C'est d'ailleurs l'une des bécanes les plus vendues depuis les 20 dernières années.

Caractéristiques de pointe

Apparu en 1999, le moteur Twin Cam 1584cc de 96 pieds cube a depuis fait ses preuves. Comme toute Harley-Davidson, la Electra Glide est connue pour sa fiabilité, son style, son confort et sa technologie de pointe. La conduite de cette machine est raffinée, que ce soit au démarrage ou a toute vitesse. L'effet chromé et la peinture qui orne cette moto n'a pas son pareil et garanti de faire tourner les têtes. Pour couronner le tout, elle est équipées d'un amplificateur qui crache 20 watts par canal, de 4 hauts-parleurs et d'un système stéréo CD, K7 et radio qui peuvent tous être réglés par le passager arrière. Comme si ce n'était pas suffisant, la Electra Glide dispose également d'un système d'alarme, d'un accès direct aux conditions météorologiques, de sacoches rigides, d'un coffre, d'une protection moteur, de reposes-pied et d'un sélecteur de vitesse talon/pointe.

Véritable star hollywoodienne

La Electra Glide est probablement la moto qui est le plus souvent apparue sur grand et petit écran. En effet elle joue la comédie dans Police Academy, Les Infiltrés, SOS Fantômes, Dans la Ligne de Mire, Point Break, Mafia Blues, Fous d'Irene, et à la télé dans Deux Flics à Miami, Badge 714, Chips, Twin Peaks et The Sentinel.

West Coastin' 2018

I started the tour in Phoenix (October 20th - nice and not too hot) and rode the Electra Glide all the way to San Francisco in 4 days.
Day 1: Las Vegas
Day 2: Los Angeles
Day 3: San Simeon
Day 4: San Francisco
There is a lot of Highway involved and these streets are perfectly made for the Electra Glide. You sit so comfortably that you wouldn't want to get off. I'm a slim, tall guy (6'3 and 170lb).
Handling is not a problem - just the size of my body is a tiny bit too high because the upper part of my helmet was already in the air-stream which made some extra noise but that was the only thing. With a full visor helmet not a problem. I couldn't stay too long behind the windshield due to the awkward body position (scooping forward with my bottom or leaning forward with my upper body). But I was also riding 300 miles per day, so I am allowed to feel something.
The sound is amazing and the throttle very crisp despite the weight of the machine. Driving at night is also not a problem at all due to the wide angled headlights and the high-beam option.
Radio and Navigation work (screen is touch sensitive but can also be controlled by little levers near the blinker).
The cruise control is a very appreciated feature, especially on the highway!
Caution needs to be taken on sharp turns! Once the machine tilts above a certain angle at low speed, it will go down and there's almost no way to get it up by yourself (I managed but with everything I got and a special technique but I also work out my legs on a regular basis). Taking slow turns a little wider and keeping your feet near the ground at very low speeds (below 5 mph) there's really no problem - not even in San Francisco.

To sum it up - the feel you get on the Pacific Coast Highway 1 cannot be described in words - there's pure freedom on that bike!

Sept 2015 4 Days In 5 Redwood Forests

We flew into SFO and used uber to get to Eaglerider. Everything about this experience went very well. Our bikes were ready, check-in was a breeze. We headed north and stayed in Eureka, Crescent City, and Petaluma. The sights were amazing and the smells were redwood enhanced. Every turn was a post card. Certainly worth the money and the time. I used AAA for a discount.
If I was to do it again and change one thing, I'd rent the Indian next time. Epic vacation ! Thank you Eaglerider !
