– 2006 Harley-Davidson FXST/I Softail Standard
Sometimes the best trip you can take is one back to the basics. The Softail® Standard is just the bike for the job. Beautiful as seen here or decked out in Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. The simple, classic lines begin with a raked fork. Head back to the horseshoe oil tank and the unmistakable shape of a wide bobtail fender. Once there, check out the brawny 200mm rear tire — a custom touch new for this year. It feels great teamed with the taut hidden suspension. Fire up the dual-counterbalanced, silver powder-coated Twin Cam 88B™, in carb or EFI, and your primal urge to blow out of town is about to be satisfied. Just gas up and go. Nothing is more basic than that.
