The Motorbike Transport Chief was invited to test ride the new 2008 model Harley Davidson at Ringwood's Harley Heaven - Melbourne, Australia.
I got to ride the Ultra Glide and V-Rod, from one extreme to the other. The Ultra Glide was so beautiful and luxurious, stereo on, cruise control, sitting up nice and high, it was quite a special ride, I thoroughly enjoyed the Ultra Glide, something I would definitely love to have in the stable.
As for the V-Rod, well, this is another kettle of fish. It is quite weird, you know you are on a Harley Davidson but it is a sports Harley Davidson, something thats takes a while to get used to. The seating position is very sporty, you feel like a speed demon, it has plenty of torque and power, I give it the thumbs up. I know the V-Rods image has always taken a bettering and that a true Harley Davidson enthusiast wont go near it and will not accept it as a Harley, but I feel quite contrary to this notion, I am a Harley Davidson rider and lover and I quite enjoyed the overall feeling of the V-Rod. There was a bunch of us on the ride and guess who was always in front of the pack, not that it was some sort of race but the 2 V-Rods and the Sportster were the bikes up at the front of the pack.
All in all, I had a great day, I thank Harley Heaven for the invitation and look forward to the next test ride day.
Ride on Brothers, Motorbike Transport Chief.
