2004 Harley-Davidson FLTRI Road Glide

FLTRI Road Glide® Model Overview*
The FLTRI Road Glide®, with its newly discovered strong following from long-time Harley owners and Californians, gets a significant upgrade in 2004. Playing off the Screaming Eagle® Road Glide Models of the past, the Road Glide has adapted a slashing silver theme this year along with a new, streamlined look. Growth in the Road Glide model has outpaced the growth of the Touring family three years in a row, and this trend should continue in MY 2004, with these exciting changes. The Road Glide offers excellent touring comfort and performance along with unique, long and low styling. The wrap-around cockpit style instrument cluster adds to the feeling that the Road Glide rider is in command. Additionally, the AM/FM/CD sound system provides high quality digital music for the road and electronic cruise control makes highway miles effortless.
* Available in North America only in MY 2004
