We’d bet more than a few prospective future Harley-Davidson owners were scared off by that Wild Hogs movie with Tim Allen & John Travolta. But riding a Harley no longer means having to balance a love for the open road and prostate concerns. The new Street 750 ($7,500) is built for the city; the concrete jungle. The star of the show is the new Revolution X engine in a 60-degree V-twin configuration, along with styling that’s much more Travolta ’77 than ’07. If you need a new motorcycle, definitely check this out. You won’t go wrong with a Harley.

2013 Harley-Davidson CVO Breakout
Rides By on Aug 27, 2012
The 2013 Harley-Davidson CVO Breakout isn’t exactly your dad’s lazy Sunday cruiser. The Twin Cam 110B engine churns out 112 ft. lbs. of torque at 3500 rpm, making it the bike with the best power-to-weight ratio of any current CVO model. Plus the Turbine wheels with matching brake discs and drive sprocket are highly polished and chrome plated, yielding a shine that even dad’s brilliantly bald dome can’t match. Step aside, pops.
The Bomb Runner: Custom Harley Sportster
Rides By on Mar 12, 2012
Some Harleys are meant to go cross-country on, but the Bomb Runner by Rough Crafts’ Winston Yeh is just begging to burn the city streets. Built on the 2011-model Sportster Forty-Eight 1200, the Bomb Runner brings a more menacing look to the table, with a higher rear shock and tail section and lean-forward look. Most of the components are Rough Crafts’ own, including the tank and fenders, rocker and clutch covers, and 2-into-1 exhaust system. Keep in mind, there are a few places this bike should never be taken, including Pier 1, JC Penney, and any frozen yogurt shoppe.
2012 Harley Davidson Softail Slim
Rides By on Feb 10, 2012
Sometimes you just want a glass of Scotch neat–you know, just the booze and the glass. Likewise, sometimes you want a Harley that’s equally as simple. Well, put down that drink and saddle up to the 2012 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. With a trimmed front fender and narrow rear end, the Slim leaves all the fancy accoutrements to the other bikes. This baby is all about the engine and nothing else. And that engine is a rigid-mounted, air-cooled, 1690 cc Twin Cam 103B counter-balanced engine with Automatic Compression Release (ACR) rated at 98.7 ft. lbs. peak torque at 3000 rpm. The specs include a 6-speed cruise drive transmission; chrome, over/under shotgun exhaust with slash-cut mufflers; and classic 5.0-gallon Fat Bob fuel tank.
