So what’s it like on Road King? Well they are as big and as imposing as you’d imagine. They’re pretty low-slung too with that distinctive rider stance we know and love so well from Harley-Davidson®. These bikes feature the retro windscreen large tank and lovely chrome detailing too.
Of course a Harley-Davidson® is heavy and it is quite different to riding your typical European motorbikes but fear not your hosts will run through the controls with you. They’ll also explain the idiosyncrasies of Harley-Davidsons such as toe change downs and heel change ups.
Turn on the ignition and you’ll feel a rumble as the air-cooled v-twin engine roars into life. The ride is just as you’d expect – in low revs the Road King truly lives up to its name.
