Revving the big M-8By Mick Withers - Australian Road Rider April 01, 2019
My hand is up in an admission of hitting the rev limiters more in the two days in Washington aboard the 2017 models than in the last two years aboard Harleys. I’m not the only one but I’ll admit to it readily. And here’s why. The M8 produces its power in a very smooth and linear manner. There’s no drop in power until you bash headfirst into the limiter. If you ride like a normal person and not a speed-crazed journo with a point to make, you may never meet the rev limiter. You’ll probably be more observant of posted speed limits and tachometers, too.
The M8 begs to be ridden with the throttle open. You can bop along in fourth gear at 2000rpm and then open the throttle wide purely for the joy of acceleration as it roars into the future. Harley claim that in otherwise identical bikes carrying the same weight, the M8 would be a few bike-lengths ahead over 60 to 80mph, or 100 to 130km/h if you’re in NT, compared to the Twin Cam-powered bike. After riding the Street Glide up the Hume, it was pretty obvious that they weren’t extending the length of our legs.
On my own (and away from those bad influences), I never once touched the rev limiter. Ground was still covered rapidly but the flexible engine meant it was more enjoyable to stay a gear higher and roll through on the fat of the mid-range rather than work the upper rpm. An eye is still needed on the speedo, especially on those double-dipping holiday periods.
A damned fine motorcycleBy Mick Withers - Australian Road Rider March 30, 2019
The short time spent aboard the Street Glide over the two days we were on the road in Washington served to whet the appetite. it took a day in the saddle on home ground to cement the opinions. by the time I sat down on my own lounge with a cuppa, I’d covered about 900 kilometres and done it easily in under 12 hours. The Street Glide had handled everything from peak-hour crawling to freeway cruising without a single problem.
The ease of overtaking was the biggest difference I noticed between this and the 2016 Street Glide I last rode. In the real world, accelerating out and around a truck at 110 and back into the left lane in the shortest possible time is a real safety item.
The Street Glide Special is a damned fine motorcycle and one that I could easily add to my collection.
