When Americans think of motorcycles, they think of Harley-Davidson. Many of today's touring riders, however, have wanted something more comfortable and roomy for their long distance rides and the trike (three-wheeled motorcycle) is usually the answer. H-D knew this and so they introduced the Tri Glide series, culminating in the Tri Glide Ultra Classic touring motorcycle, also just called the Trike.
The 2011 Harley-Davidson Trike features up to 80 pounds of storage capacity (without a trailer) and the smooth, road worthy harmony of Harley's Softail rides. With more options than most cars and better handling than many motorcycles, the Trike is a perfect balance of comfort and sportiness. Experienced riders will appreciate the powerful V-twin engine and true Harley-Davidson riding experience while the inexperienced rider will enjoy the road going comfort and stability the Trike offers.
Along with the signature American-made power and durability, the Ultra Glide also has several amenities meant specifically for the long-distance touring rider. With comfortable two-person seating, excellent dash gauge layout, simple and safe handlebar-mounted controls, and small extras like electric backup, the Trike is definitely a road trip companion like no other.
