My Dyna Super-Glide Custom was delivered yesterday by Stratstone Harley-Davidson at Stoke - the bike was in pristine condition, polished to perfection with a Pure Guard coating, the first coating of pre-glaze seals the paintwork on the Super Glide, the second coating fuses together the first coating to protect the bike and it’s guaranteed for six years, so my bike should maintain it’s showroom appearance until I do decide to sell her (her because she has been named “Scarlett”).
The bike rides like a dream, almost 1600cc (96 cubic inches) of sheer Harley-Davidson Twin Cam 96 power matched with the ESPFI system. It handles so smoothly and the power is available as soon as you need it, don’t get me wrong, this is NOT a racer of any description, but it does have the power available to accelerate as soon as you need it. The Twin Cam 96 is developed from the 1909 V-Twin of Harley-Davidson’s heritage and that heritage shows and works!
The Super Glide is maxed out with the chrome and high end finishes, chrome rocker covers, tank mounted gauges with wrap around chrome, the solid stainless steel pullback handlebars are a perfect fit for my riding style, enabling me to just cruise in comfort. Probably one of the best design parts of the Super Glide is the self cancelling turn indicators, you don’t have to think about them, they judge their own distance and self cancel, all done using accelerometers.
The bike also comes equipped with ABS as factory installed, so stopping power is there in heaps and really gives you a feeling of security and safety. The bike also has an inbuilt security system, no key to fire up the ignition as most bikes do, the Super Glide uses a security key fob which activates the ignition system when you are standing near the bike, no key to think about!! Perfect as you just keep the fob in your jacket pocket and start her up when you are ready to ride.. and what a ride!!
