– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHT/I Electra Glide Standard
If you’re one who appreciates the simple pleasures in life like open road and wind, the Electra Glide® Standard could be for you. Settle into the plush seat. Rest your boots on the generous footboards. Fire up the isolation-mounted Twin Cam 88® engine. And take a deep breath of freedom. You’ll feel there’s nothing else you could ever want. But that’s never stopped us from giving you more like an air-adjustable suspension, triple-disc brakes, lockable hardbags and new paint colors to choose from. The Standard is also the perfect canvas for Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. For those who believe making a good thing even better is another of life’s simple pleasures.
