Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide®

Die Electra Glide wird von ihren Fans geliebt aufgrund des Komfort, der Kapazität, des Stylings und des guten Fahrverhalten auf der Straße. Das Basis Model in Harley`s Flotte wiegt 394 Kilogramm und ist nun seit 20 Jahren ein Bestseller. Das Motorrad ist leicht an der Verkleidung und dem breiten Sitz zu erkennen.

Absolute Fakten

Der 1999 eingeführte Twin Cam 96 Motor mit 1584 Kubik hat sich immer bewährt und ist nicht störanfällig. Das Bike bietet die gleiche Verlässlichkeit, die Harleys schon seit über 100 Jahren antreibt. Darüber hinaus ist es mit modernster Technik ausgestattet. Das Bike ist auch bei langsamem Tempo sehr gut zu bedienen, kann aber auch etwas schneller bewegt werden, ohne den Harley-Komfort zu verlieren. Das Bike verfügt über eine 20 Watt (pro Kanal) Stereoanlage mit vier Lautsprechern, ein Radio, einen CD Spieler und eine getrennten Kontrolle für den Beifahrer, eine Alarmanlage, einem Top Case, Wetterinfo, Sturzbügeln, Trittbrettern und eine Schaltwippe.

Hollywood Klassik

Die E-Glide ist in mehr Filmen zu sehen, als jedes andere Bike: Police Academy, Ghostbusters, In the Line off Fire, Unter Feinden, Gefährliche Landung etc. Im TV Miami Vice, Chip`s, Twin Peaks und Der 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 !
