Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic

First introduced in 1965, this bike has become the standard that all other long-haul tourers seek to aspire to. It’s the benchmark for any serious continent-crossing rider who wants the finest rider experience. And last year’s exhaustive, information gathering Project RUSHMORE has played a large part in its success. We muscled up the engine, gave it one-touch luggage controls, a roomier Tour-Pak™, large enough for 2 full-face helmets and injection-moulded hard saddlebags. We gave it a four speaker 100 watt Boom!™ Box 4.3 audio system, ergonomically reorganized controls and a fuel tank that holds over 22.7 litres.
