Harley-Davidson® Road Glide®

Die Harley-Davidson Road Glide bietet die Kraft und den Erfolg der HD Touring Tradition kombiniert mit absoluten Reisestandards. Dieses Bike ist perfekt geeignet um echte Meilen zu machen und Sie werden überrascht sein, wie leicht dieses Bike zu beherrschen ist. Die Road Glide ist ein großartiger Tourer im Harley-Davidson Design.


Mit knapp 350 Kilo ist die Road Glide ein Mittelschwergewichttsmonster mit einem 1450 Kubik großen luftgekühlten V2 Triebwerk. Der Tank fasst 19 Liter, das Bike kommt mit einer Gallone (3,79l) ca. 80 km weit. Das Bike fährt sich komfortabel und sanft mit seiner leichtgängigen Kupplung, Luftfederung und dem bequemen Sattel. Die Verkleidung ist fest mit dem Rahmen verschraubt, außerdem bietet sie geräumige Satteltaschen und das immer vorhandenden Gefühl des kräftigen Motors. Ein super Tourer, dem man sein Gewicht gar nicht anmerkt.


Die Road Glide wurde 1998 in den Dienst gestellt und brachte die festgeschraubte Verkleidung wieder auf den Markt zurück. Andere Hersteller versuchten es HD gleich zu tun, aber die FLTR Road Glide von Harley-Davidson steht unangefochten an Platz 1. Viele empfehlen die Road Glide als da ideale Tour Bike in Sachen Ästhetik sowie Funktionalität.

Solid long-distance bike

It took 2-3 days to get the feel of the bike across a variety of riding conditions in California. I admit that I swore a lot while going through some 20mph turns in the mountains and doing U-turns in the city on day 2 of our ride. After I got the feel for the engine, clutch and the weight it was an absolute joy to ride even through tight tricky corners.

For such a heavy bike it's quite easy to maneuver even at very low speeds. Do take care when moving it in the parking lot, if you grab the front brake while pushing it around, it will want to fall right over.

My ride would have benefitted with a slightly taller windscreen, though. At 80mph highway speeds you get quite a bit of air slamming at your face. I learned from this that my helmet was a bit loose and bought a new one mid-trip. Not sure if you can do anything about this at time of renting.

It would have been nice to have a little back rest for the rider as my lower back got pretty sore on longer rides. Again, not sure if there's anything you can do at time of renting about this, but may be worth considering when choosing your bike.

The heel shifter on my bike was a great feature that became second nature (step back on it to shift up).

The bike is very stable even with cross winds, which I really appreciated on busy high-speed highways.

The storage boxes had plenty of room for my needs and performed admirably. It didn't look like they were removable on the bike that I rented so that may be worth considering when renting.

Note that I did not have a passenger but had to provide a rating. Given that there is no passenger backrest and that the seat is fairly narrow, I would assume it's an average experience at best. If you have a passenger, give them a comfortable seat.

Overall an amazing bike with the proper HD character. I would love to take it on another tour.

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
