A driving license is enough to ride this strange device, a symbol of the “American way of life.”
Who has not dreamed of escape, preferably away, riding a Harley-Davidson? But this dream for many stumbles on a miserable reality: no motorcycle license, not Harley. The Tri Glide delivers you this small administrative baseness. A self pink cardboard, one of your 18 years, enough to ride the trike and make you enter in the brotherhood of the followers of Milwaukee, the mythical place where these steel monsters are born. Sign that does not deceive, the first Harley rider on two wheels you meet will send the large hi reserved for family members.
You never made motorcycle? Better. The Tri Glide puzzles pure bikers. It turns flat, requires turning the handlebars frankly before entering a curve and is unable to trace the lines. Though: many motorists facilitate his passage to greet a thumbs-up. As a good American, his stomping ground the Autoroute. Guided by GPS, cruise control engaged, you set off to conquer the great outdoors and enjoy the excellent sound distilled the original Harman Kardon audio system. When stopped, the machine operation without any difficulty as a small car, with the help of a reverse. Women delight in his conduct, probably experiencing the same joy as men the day they stole fire from the gods.
Find themselves, almost without preamble, if a small few hours of training, riding a magnificent Electra Glide, the flagship model of Harley-Davidson, the Tri Glide takes the front, there is something exhilarating and, for all say, of rewarding. Admittedly, this is not fun especially cheap. But do we discuss the price of his toys?
