The Top 10 Harley-Davidsons Of All Time

top 10 harley-davidsons

Asking a motorcyclist to name his/her favorite top 10 Harley-Davidsons is like asking a music fan to name his/her favorite song: ask a hundred people and you’ll get a hundred answers.

We tried to come up with a definitive list of the Top 10 Harley-Davidsons of All Time. We really did. We asked our friends and colleagues; we asked neighbors, and their cats; we posted on Craigslist and took out classified ads in the local paper (no, not really). Mainly, we sent out queries via social media. We hit up fellow motorcycle journalists, whose knowledge and experience is vast and insightful. We asked builders and customizers, whose creative takes on the American classics have ranged from practical to unrideable. We queried rockers, racers, computer geeks and everyone in between, because the Motor Company’s appeal is universal. Our panel was varied, and everyone had a favorite – but no one could agree on the best of all time.

And keeping true to the spirit of motorcycling, no one tried to force their opinions down anyone’s throats. Fact is, for the most part our queries were met with everything from incredulous scoffs to unrestrained guffaws. Everyone made it clear that their opinions were, and should be, irrelevant to anyone else. “If you like it, then you should ride it,” was the unanimous theme of the responses we received.



So on the following pages we’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Harley-Davidsons of All Time, a list which in no way should be interpreted as definitive and one that’s presented in no particular order. Better, we’ve included anecdotes on each model by our panelists, a variety of motorcycling luminaries and MoCo fans from the industry and beyond. And we want to hear from you, too: What’s the Best Harley-Davidson of All Time?

Mugen Unveils The Shinden Roku For 2017 TT Zero

2017 TT Zero

Team Mugen presented the latest version of its 2017 TT Zero – winning electric racebike at the 2017 Tokyo Motorcycle Show. John McGuinness, and Guy Martin will ride the MugenShinden Roku (“roku” meaning “six”) in this year’s race.

Mugen has won the last three TT Zero races with McGuinness winning the TT Zero in 2014 and 2015 and Bruce Antsey victorious in 2016. McGuinness owns the lap record with a time of 18:58:743 on the Isle of Man’s Mountain Course set in 2015.



 

The 2017 TT Zero Roku is an evolution of last year’s entry, the Shinden Go. Mugen’s claims of 160.9 hp and 154.9 lb-ft. are the same as last year’s machine but the Shinden Roku is said to weight 4.4 pounds less. The fairing has a thinner nose and the tail rise up to a much sharper point.

The 2017 TT Zero is scheduled for June 7.

Motorcyclist Has Been Airlifted To Hospital After Crashing Into A Police Car

motorcyclist has been arlifted

A motorcyclist has been airlifted to Scott and White Hospital in Temple after he slammed into the back of a College Station Police Department patrol vehicle Sunday morning.

The 27-year-old ran into the back of the stationary patrol car while an officer was conducting a DWI investigation.

The motorcyclist suffered multiple fractures and major internal injuries.



On Tuesday morning, the College Station Police Department will close down northbound Highway 6 between Harvey Road and Briarcrest Drive at 2 a.m. to allow investigators to reconstruct the accident.

Drivers will have to take the Harvey Road exit and can get back on Highway 6 at Briarcrest Drive.

The investigation is expected to take about four hours.

So far, there have been no charges filed because of the accident, and the name of the motorcyclist is not being released at this time.

The New Honda CBR 1000 RR

Honda CBR 1000 RR

More power, less weight: it’s a clear mission statement. In fact it’s the same mission statement that Honda issued when it debuted the Honda CBR 900 RR in 1992. The idea behind that motorcycle was a to build a bike the size of a middleweight with the power of an open-class superbike. The original was a success, in part because it was an unprecedented blend of small stature and big power. Then came every generation of Fireblade since—from 929, to 954, to 1000. That’s 25 years of production and 470,000 ‘Blades sold, according to Honda. So, more to the point, it was a clear mission statement and a successful one, by any company’s standards. It will come as no surprise, then, that for 2017 Honda is reaching back those 25 years to revive the same concept: more power, less weight.



The new Honda CBR 1000 RR will come in three versions: base model, SP, and SP2. We didn’t ride an SP2 and we probably won’t—it’s made for racing homologation and Honda only plans to make 500 of them, selling for about $25,000 each. The SP will be widely available, and comes with a titanium fuel tank, lithium-ion battery, Brembo brakes, a standard quickshifter, as well as electronically adjustable Öhlins suspension and different paint—all for a base price of $19,999. The base bike will be available in two versions in the US, non-ABS for $16,499 and with ABS for $16,799. Both will use steel gas tanks, lead-acid batteries, and Tokico brake calipers.

Harley-Davidson Ballpark Tour

Harley-Davidson Ballpark Tour

It started, as these things do, as a pipe dream. The ( Harley-Davidson Ballpark Tour ) delectable and impossible, a random thought passing through the drabness of office life. What would you, the hardcore baseball enthusiast, do with a couple of weeks off and access to a motorcycle? Would you act on that dream of touring for the singular purpose of watching baseball? Would you hit the road simply to visit some of the world’s most important and iconic ball fields? Yes. The answer is wholeheartedly yes.

And so the idea behind a project we dubbed America’s Pastime percolated. On a tour of the Northeast—arguably the center of gravity for Major League Baseball—it would be possible to see both the oldest and newest fields. Specifically, Fenway Park, as the oldest, home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912. And the new Yankee Stadium, which opened to much fanfare in 2009. (Since then, there are newer fields as well—the cross-town rival Mets’ Citi Field, also opened in 2009, as well as Target Field in Minneapolis, which opened in 2010, and the 2012 opening of Marlins Park in Miami.

In short order, we developed a tour to start in Boston and take us through the Bronx, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, South Bend, Chicago, and, finally, into Milwaukee, where we’d return the fleet of2017 Harley-Davidson Touring models we’d borrowed for the occasion. Planning a trip with a game nearly every day wasn’t easy, but we found a more-than-workable solution by adding a Single-A game in South Bend, Indiana, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the White Sox facility thanks to our special guest, Ron Kittle.



Harley-Davidson Ballpark Tour

Ron is our kind of guy. He’s a serious motorcyclist with his own Harley Fat Boy, a serious retired player, and a serious fan of the sport. Ron joined the White Sox for his first full year in 1983, playing a combination of left field and designated hitter. Although he had 150 strikeouts that year (leading the league), he popped 35 home runs (a club record for a rookie) and knocked in 100 runs over 145 games to give him Rookie of the Year honors and an invitation to that year’s All Star Game. He missed the American League home run title by just three dingers. The Sox won 99 games that year to the AL West division title; they would fall to Baltimore in four games in the AL Championship Series that year. It was the season known as “Winning Ugly,” a term offered by another team’s manager to describe the unlikely way the Sox were winning, capitalizing on other teams’ mistakes—but being good enough to take advantage of also being lucky.

A former steelworker, Ron is a big man (listed as 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds in his playing days) with an equally big personality. Wherever we went, he knew someone or had a story about a place, a player, or a game. And they were all brilliant. His wife, Barb, brought her own H-D Softail and a personality that could clearly go toe to toe with Ron any day of the week. Along with these two we had a total of 12 Motorcyclist readers in two groups of six, with overlap at our Baltimore game, in part to give our readers a shot at a cool vacation and in part to get their feedback on the new 2017 Harleys.

The CHIPS Have Fallen

chips movie

If, by some random fate of the internet, you ended up reading a review for CHiPs on a motorcycle website in spite of the fact that you have no interest in motorcycles, then let me cut to the chase: CHiPs is not a very good movie. Not in the traditional sense. The plot is unnecessarily complicated, it’s self-indulgently obscene, and worst of all, it’s just not consistently funny. But, if you do see it, you’ll witnesses some of the finest displays of motorcycle riding and motorcycle filming to ever come across the silver screen. And that’s what we’re excited about.

CHiPs Baker and Poncherello

Photo: Warner Bros.



Actors Dax Shepard and Michael Peña saddle up on a couple of BMW R1200 RTs for a remake of the classic TV series. Their chemistry is great, but the script usually leaves them hanging.

For the uninitiated, CHiPs is based on the television series of the same name that ran from 1977-1983. Like the original show, the movie follows motorcycle-mounted CHP officers Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank Poncherello (Michael Peña) as they protect/terrorize Los Angeles with their policing escapades. But, gone are the days of wholesome jokes and feathered hair. This movie-version of CHiPs is raunchy, and violent, and wears its R-rating like a badge of honor.

On the surface, that’s a good thing. There’s no sense in remaking or rebooting a series if you aren’t going to bring something new to the table. But there’s a nagging sense of superficiality to the filth in this movie. To be clear, I am not at all opposed to seeing movies with sex, violence, and cursing. This isn’t the beginning of some tirade about the fall of civilization because our minds are in the gutter. I just think these elements should be used in service of the story. They should make movies funnier, scarier, or more realistic. And sadly, that’s not the case for CHiPs.

Conquering a Saddle Sore 1000 IBA RUN

IBA SADDLE SORE 1000

You know, I’ve thought long and hard, over many hours – 24 of them, in fact – and the quote above sums up the most rational reason for doing an Iron Butt Association Saddle Sore 1000 ride. For those who like things distilled down to their most concentrated form, the only real reason is, as George Mallory famously said, is “Because it’s there.”

Otherwise, undertaking a Saddle Sore 1000 is irrational, foolish, and without real merit – all of which makes it absolutely essential for a MOron, like myself.

Ever since I heard about Iron Butt rides, way back in my motorcyclist infancy, the idea of completing one has appealed to me on a basic level. Considering that it took me this long to actually do one is kind of shocking. After all, I’ve competed in three 24-hour races and volunteered for a fourth. I’ve ridden cross-country multiple times – sometimes with an arrival deadline which forced me to log long days in the saddle and other times with no schedule at all, allowing me to follow my impulses. I’ve ridden to the Arctic Ocean and back from Los Angeles, including the more than 800 miles of gravel roads – on a Harley-Davidson ElectraGlide Ultra. I’ve impulsively split off from a guided ride at the original Yamaha FZ1introduction because the Rock of Gibraltar was there in the distance – and I needed to be there, too.

Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain Sells Out In 10 Minutes

Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain

When the first Jack Daniel’s Indian Chief Vintage and Springfield hit the market last year, the models that celebrated the 150th Anniversary of the Tennessee whiskey company all 150 sold out in eight hours. That was impressive for the bikes designed by Klock Werkes out of South Dakata. But this year’s limited-edition Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain, also designed by Klock Werkes, sold out even faster. When Indian motorcycle dealers began accepting pre-order deposits at noon last Monday, all 100 of the new Jack Daniel’s Indian Chieftain sold out by 12:10 p.m.

“This overwhelming level of demand is an incredible testament to the power of these two iconic American brands,” said Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles for Polaris Industries. “Without a doubt, this brand collaboration and motorcycle are tapping directly into a deep sense of patriotism and American pride. We couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it.”



The white and black crystal paint is highlighted with charcoal-colored accents, which symbolizes Jack Daniel’s unique charcoal-mellowing process.  “Old No. 7” logos and custom badges are found across the build, including on the billet driver and passenger floorboards, leather tank pouch, aluminum tank console with motorcycle number, and unique cam, primary and air intake covers. The crowning detail is a handmade, pure silver Jack Daniel’s horn cover badge, hand-crafted by the team at Montana Silversmith, exclusively developed and produced only for this motorcycle.  The bike also carries an inscription of Jack Daniel’s “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” mantra to remind riders that drinking and riding are meant to be enjoyed separately, Indian Motorcycle reports.

Indian WINS At American Flat Track Opener at Daytona

indian daytona 2017 American Flat Track Opener

The Indian Motorcycle Racing Team makes triumphant return to flat track racing.

Jared Mees helped the Indian Motorcycle flat track team make a triumphant return after the 63-year hiatus. Mees claimed first at the Daytona TT American Flat Track season opener followed by fellow Indian factory rider and 2016 Grand National Champion Bryan Smith.

All eyes were on Indian heading into the season opener after assembling a team featuring three of the sport’s most decorated riders and armed with Indian’s Scout FTR750. The season-opening victory brought dramatic validation to Indian’s bold re-entry into the sport it had once dominated, reigniting the Indian Motorcycle versus Harley-Davidson rivalry that had carried the sport throughout its glory days.

Dunlop Becomes Title Sponsor of America’s Ultimate Long-Distance Rider Challenge

America's Ultimate Long-Distance Rider Challenge

Dunlop has signed on as the title sponsor of Rever’s America’s Ultimate Long-Distance Rider Challenge for the rest of 2017.

The 2016 edition of this mileage-based Challenge was a success with more than 3.7 million miles recorded on 41,582 rides by Rever users.

It was one of Rever’s most popular challenges, and opened the door to secure Dunlop as a partner for 2017.

“The riders competing in the Dunlop America’s Ultimate Long-Distance Rider Challenge put in some serious miles, which means they burn through a lot of tires,” said Justin Bradshaw, Rever’s President and Co-Founder. “Dunlop is the perfect partner to help motivate these riders to get out there and ride. The top-three participants in last year’s AULDRC recorded an amazing combined 208,160 miles and all had Dunlop tires mounted on their motorcycles.”



Challenge Description
Dunlop wants to see how much you really like sitting in the saddle. Do you log 50,000, 75,000 miles or more annually? Or ever dreamed of doing so? Then you should get out and ride and log in some miles. Yes, you burn up tires and gas, and while Dunlop can’t help you with the latter, you could get the chance to win Dunlop tires while you take on those miles of road. You could even win the grand prize package from Dunlop of three sets of tires of your choice. Your mission is simple—ride more than you ever have in 2017 and see how you stack up against some seriously well-worn backsides.

2017 Harley-Davidson Road King

2017 harley davidson road king

When the Harley-Davidson Road King was introduced in 1994, it became The Motor Company’s best-selling model in the United States.

The un-faired bagger took its styling cues from the 1949 Hydra Glide, which used hydraulic damped telescopic forks over spring suspension setups that were dominate at the time. The Road King remained king of Harley FL tourers until the release of the 2006 Street Glide, which was built by Willie G. Davidson.

However, Harley-Davidson is looking to change this with the bolder Road King Special. Meet the2017 Harley-Davidson Road King Special, which I tested during Daytona Bike Week.



Ahead of our full review, here are the essential Fast Facts from our first ride test.

  1. The Road King Special arrives with the new Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine that produces a claimed 93 horsepower and 114 ft/lbs of torque at 3250 rpm. This engine—the first blacked-out Milwaukee-Eight 107 to appear on a bike—makes the previous Twin Cam 103 feel sluggish. The eight-valve 107ci engine also runs much smoother than the Twin Cam, and fills out the engine area more, providing a more muscular look.
  1. Due to the 107 engine being both balanced (single internal engine counter-balancer) and rubber-mounted, vibrations are dramatically reduced, especially at idle. Harley claims a 75-percent reduction in vibrations at idle, and I agree with that claim of smoother idling.

With street drag racing being one of the focuses for Rod and the Buffalo Chip team, we executed a design that balances the quintessential rawness of performance with the refinement of quality off-the-shelf Kuryakyn products. It presents the perfect medium to showcase our Crusher Performance Division, the new Mesh and Riot product collections, and also introduce the evolution of one of Kuryakyn’s most iconic products, the Hypercharger.

Everybody: You Should Check Your Mirrors Twice

check your mirrors twice

Youtuber Boobiegbb stated that they were on the I-880 southbound in Milpitas, CA. “I moved over on shoulder to let a biker who was splitting lanes go by me. Car merging into HOV lane wasn’t paying attention and pulled right out in front of biker causing an accident and me almost running him over. If it wasn’t for the biker it would have been me who would have hit the car. I’m not gonna point fingers to put blame on anyone here. There’s so many ways to look at this. All I can say is be aware of your surrounding at all times. Both bikers and motorists. Drive safe everyone. And check your mirrors twice.”

San Francisco Police Looking At Gang Members As Suspects In Dirt Bike Beating

San Francisco Police Looking At Gang Members As Suspects In Dirt Bike Beating

Police and the California Highway Patrol say their investigation into a fight on Highway 101 in San Francisco between a group of dirt bikers and a Lyft driver continues. A source tells ABC7 News that investigators are looking at Bayview gang members as suspects in the beating, but have not yet identified anyone.

These are difficult investigations as these dirt bikers normally wear masks, covering their faces and have no license plates. Police are relying on video tape and information from witnesses at this time.

In the case of this brutal attack, the California Highway Patrol is the lead investigative agency, while the San Francisco Police Department is assisting them.



Investigators believe some of the suspects are from the Bayview District and belong to one of the gangs. “There are a number of officers throughout our district stations. We’ve had contact with some of these folks on the bikes, so they know who some of them are,” San Francisco Police Dept. Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

It was a brutal attack captured on cellphone video.

Motorcycle Gets Towed With The Driver Still On It

Motorcycle Gets Towed With The Driver Still On It

Police in North India can apparently be pretty hardcore considering they had a motorcycle towed while the driver was still on it!

The bike was reportedly parked illegally, but the 30-year-old driver had no intention of paying his ticket or letting his ride get away.

When he refused to pay, the cops seized the bike, but this dude still wasn’t giving up that easily.

He jumped back on the bike, which was hanging from a chain off the back of the truck and went for a little joy ride.



The act looks about as safe as your average tire swing.

The tow truck driver either didn’t notice the guy on the back or didn’t care because he left him dangling there as he drove full speed ahead to his destination.

While the man’s chutzpah is admirable, the strategy isn’t a great plan for getting your motorcycle back.
