– 2005 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLTRI
Calling the Road Glide® model just another touring bike is like calling Mount Rushmore just another piece of rock. One look at the profile tells you this one’s different. Beginning up front with the frame-mounted shark-nose fairing with cockpit-style instrumentation, twin headlights and a swept-back windshield. The styling is aerodynamic—there’s nothing sleeker on the road. Moving back, there are broad-stripe graphics, a flowing seat, angled bags and slash-cut mufflers. It all gives new meaning to the word “streamlined.” You also get cruise control and 40-watts-per-channel, 4-speaker AM/FM/CD sound. But the best tunes come from the silver and chrome Twin Cam 88® powertrain. Twist the throttle and you’ll see there’s no other touring bike—and no other feeling—like this on earth.
