Crossing the Ozark Mountains on an Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Rider Magazine
August 20, 2008

I could feel the disgruntlement of the Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide, the one with all the options, as we swung on to I-155.

Colorado Route 141 from Whitewater to Dove Creek

Rider Magazine
February 8, 2007
