Harley-Davidson motorcycles

Although this is not a veritable Harley-Davidson trike, it does stand out as a lame attempt of virtually anything considered to be a mean of transportation. It looks very comfortable, but still too silly for our taste.

P.S. I would really like to see the guy riding this tent motorcycle.

Harley-Davidson is recalling 111,569 of their 2009-2010 touring motorcycles made between June 6, 2008, and Nov. 19, 2009 over a problem with front fuel tank mounts. Apparently, HD is concerned about the potential for leaked fuel to ignite after a front-end crash. We don’t know how much the major recall will cost, but we do know that this is not a good time for such a measure. Still, this is the responsible thing to do for the prestigious company. Hit the jump for the official details.

Nobody has ever before attempted to backflip a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and when the idea finally struck, it did in two different heads, that of Kain Saul in Australia and Chuck Carothers in Prague. They both recently performed their backflips on Harley-Davidson XR1200 motorcycles, meaning that both deserve our recognition and appreciation, despite the fact that the XR1200 used by Kain was specially-prepped for the job while Chuck’s much more rigid XR1200 threw him to the ground. See both videos after the jump.

Australia-based tuner Deus Ex Machina has turned the Harley-Davidson Nightster into a café racer that they call the Deus Special. The original 1200cc V-Twin motor was kept, but the bike now offers a completely different riding experience and the muscular looks are sure to indicate that from the very first glance.

Deus told hell for leather magazine they’ve used modified Yammy SR400 tank, quick release strap, new taps etc.
custom fender’ectomy....warren got handy with the drill bits
custom 2 into 1, retuned fuel maps to suit
single saddle conversion
kept the belt drive, chains look nicer but the customer wanted his pants to stay up.

What’s not to like about this custom motorcycle?

HD’s 2010 model range offers 10 new ways to “save yourself,” just as the song in their latest video suggests. Among these, the Electra Glide Ultra Limited, Dyna Wide Glide, Fat Boy Special, XR1200X and the Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) models are the ones we like best. For more information, click here.

When you’re given a school assignment related to cowboys and you come up with a very cool commercial for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, you can really show the teacher that you may very well have more talent than him.

Ok, so although this is not a real Harley-Davidson ad, it sure looks like one, so check it out.

Harley-Davidson has declared November "Military Appreciation Month," inviting fans to pay a tribute to both active and retired U.S. Military personnel on a specially created “thank you” section of their website. Fans of the iconic American brand can create an electronic postcard featuring model Marisa Miller and Harley-Davidson motorcycles or buy limited-edition posters, postcards and calendars featuring the Victoria’s Secret Angel from HD dealerships. Also, one lucky active or retired military will win a motorcycle as part of the “Salute Those who Defend Freedom” campaign. Press release is attached after the jump.

Update: video is now also added.

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.

Now that Harley-Davidson is concentrating on its own brand after bringing Buell to a sad end of the road and planning to sell MV Agusta, we became even more interested in their future plans and came across a concept bike designed by Miguel Cotto. The interesting part about it is that, unlike the usual concept designs that we see nowadays, power comes from a high-revving 883cc engine claimed to retain the HD sound that drives bikers crazy about their bikes.

We like the hubless wheels and this concept HD motorcycle in general, but certainly can’t imagine a pack of highway wolfs getting their beards on this baby not even ten years from this day.
