American-V 088


With Harley’s biggest new model announcement in generations, we put four of the eight new Softails for a blast on exactly the sorts of roads that their predecessors would have struggled with and came away mightily impressed.

As impressive as the long term Harley-Davidson Freewheeler trike that has been racking up the miles for the last six weeks, and which I’m not going to want to let go of. And on those travels, we’ve dropped in on the Bulldog Bash, Mersea Island Poker Run, Dirtquake, Buster Lang and UK BEG’s Em’s Day.

Add Alison’s Buell street custom, Big Al’s big mileage Evo and Steve Creaser’s Cafe Racer and you’ve got a lot of magazine to get your teeth into.
