BEST TOUR­ING BIKE

HAR­LEY-DAVID­SON ROAD KING SPE­CIAL

Cycle World - - North Rim Adventure -

We picked the Road King Spe­cial here for be­ing the ab­so­lutely coolest bike with bags to ever roll down Amer­i­can high­ways. But also as the avatar for the whole Har­ley-david­son Mil­wau­kee-eight-pow­ered tour­ing lineup. From the top-of-the-line CVO Ul­tra with Twin-cooled 114 Mil­wau­kee-eight all the way down to the stripped and stretched Road King pic­tured here, Har­leydavid­son made smoother, more flex­i­ble, more pow­er­ful en­gines and cou­pled this with chas­sis up­dates that im­proved ride and han­dling. Not the fastest means for eat­ing mas­sive amounts of high­way, but one of the most plea­sur­able and com­fort­able— th­ese are mo­tor­cy­cles that make the jour­ney as much spir­i­tual as it is phys­i­cal.
