A great option for riders who either want to start building their own customer chopper or for those who want something more than a generic factory-made cruiser, is the 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide. It can be customized to a huge degree with lots of OEM and aftermarket accessories and parts available. The long and low profile of the bike is enhanced by the low-slow and two-up ribbed seat. The Fat Bob fuel tank and steel infused wheels add to the overall classic appeal of the bike. Despite the classic look of the bike, it still looks very clean thanks to the mini pull-back handlebar at the front end. The lack of wires and the smoothness of the bike draw attention to the tank-mounted ignition and speedometer console.
In terms of performance, the 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide is lots of fun to ride. The V-Twin engine offers great acceleration and power, and when combined with the nimble yet robust frame it delivers a really enjoyable driving experience. Simply put, driving the 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide feels like stepping back into the past while still enjoying all the latest additions available right now. The streaming flame gas tank art, which is optional but highly recommended, is from the choppers of the 1970s and even the 1950s. The seat, while comfortable and great for the rider, can be a problem for the passenger. Average and large sized people will not be able to sit comfortably in this bike. The 1548-cc, twin-cam 96 offers the power for this bike, and the extended fork look in front with lots of chrome details makes this a great street bike. The 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide is available in four colors- black without flames, black with flames, orange with flames and yellow with flames.
The rubber mounting and suspension of the 2008 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide helps keep some of the vibes from the engine and road in check, but the bike still shudders when on idle. The light weight of the bike, thanks to the lighter piston and other engine components, makes it a very smooth-running engine. The smoothness is especially evident when travelling at cruising speeds. The shake gets most intense when at low revs and while idling at traffic signals. One of the best aspects of the chopper is its front end. The internal wiring and lack of instrumentation in front keeps the bars uncluttered and clean, and the bars sit at four-inch risers so that the rider has his arms up and ready. However, the low suspension and seat height and sportier handlebars makes this bike slightly less than an old-school chopper.
