– 2006 Harley-Davidson FXD/I Dyna Super Glide
If your idea of living large is as simple as a long stretch of asphalt and a Big Twin rumbling beneath your seat, then look no further than the Super Glide.® Just as with all Dyna™ models, it’s redesigned for 2006. The minimalist styling gets beefed up with 49mm forks. There’s a new solo seat. New 160mm rear tire. Feast your eyes on these new cast wheels. Silver powder-coated, vibration-isolated Twin Cam 88®. Now with six gears. What hasn’t changed is the bike’s nimble nature. Simply seek out a serpentine road for proof.
