The Harley-Davidson Wide Glide is new for 2010 and it is entirely reduced to a big V-Twin engine around which they’ve contoured the old-school chopper style. Inspired by its glorious past and looking towards the future, this Dyna model is a low, stretched-out custom with drag bars and forward foot controls that give its rider a real fists-in-the-wind profile. Also, the LED stop/turn/tail light combo and side-mounted license plate keep the chopped rear fender clean; so clean that no rebel out there will ignore it.
The FLHTCUSE5 pushes the term "fully loaded" to the edge. From satellite radio and heated handgrips to exclusive custom paint schemes and a 1,801cc Scream in Eagle V-Twin engine, this ride is truly top-of-the-line.
The FXDF2-CVO has its show-stopping style with lavish custom details and adrenaline-pumping performance from a Twincam96 V-Twin engine.
The FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide has got old-school chopper looks with the comfort of a modem ride.
What sets the Low Rider apart from the rest of the Dyna models is the fact that it looks like the closest thing to a Sportster and it has the 1,584 cc engine so it gets the best of both worlds at no great expense. Destined to riders who simply can’t get enough of the Sportster style, but which crave for a healthier engine grunt and the benefits of a six-speed tranny, the Low Rider is one of those bikes that everyone ordered at a custom bike builder before Harley-Davidson introduced it.
There’s something about the Fat Bob that keeps on gathering a crowd this year too, the drag bike look sustained by the very same V-twin engine as on the rest of the Dyna models. So it is purely aesthetical. Of course not! It’s about offering comfort and the engine’s unique performance in a package that is designed accordingly to the rider’s preferences which in this case conclude in the aggressive drag bike appearance.
Harley-Davidson always knew how and when to line up to the needs of each specific rider crowd and when it comes to all the rebels out there, the Dyna Street Bob is among the favorite choices. Standing as a reminder of the post-war Bobber design and being powered by a V-twin engine that is as modern as they get, the 2009 model year is history brought back in our complete attention.
Two of the most skillfully crafted models in the Dyna family, the Super Glide and Super Glide Custom carry on being produced as 2009 model years with little but significant changes and actually manage to look like being in a class of their own as they are long, refined and pretty much reduced to the very essence of riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in style.
The bikes will indeed go for the long haul, but there are no fancy on board systems such as a GPS, radar detector or anything like that. On this thing it’s just rider and machine, pure passion and the open road, all for $12 respectively $13 grand.

The 2007 FXDB Dyna Street Bob again proves less can be more taking minimalist styling cues from the post-World War II "bobber" movement and the custom choppers of the 1970s to a modern motorcycle.
Displaying plenty of chrome, the revitalized 2007 FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom is a bold and beautiful motorcycle. In addition to its chrome features, the Super Glide Custom has a long and low profile, including a low-slung, two-up ribbed seat. A mini-pullback handlebar sits above a Fat Bob fuel tank with FXDWG-style tank-mounted speedometer and ignition console.
