ultimate comfort
By Duane Jones(Owner), Apr. 6, 2012
Bought the motorcycle in Nov. and rode,weather permitting,all winter with temperatures 20's & 30's F.The front lowers and fairing air deflectors are fantastic at keeping the cold air away from the rider.The 103 supplies plenty of power which gives smooth,crisp acceleration with or without a pass...

Bust or Boom
By john henderson(Owner), Mar. 23, 2014
I like everything about the bike except the wobbly froint end and which they addressed in the 2014 models with the heavier steering head and front end. Other than that issue its abeen a great bike. HAven't really put her to a test yet with only 10,000 miles on the odometer. Read Full Review

2012 Ultra Classic
By Skittles(Owner), Mar. 21, 2013
This is my 4th Electra Glide in 25 years. The 2012 is the best handling, most reliable, nimble and all around best motorcycle I have owned to date. ABS is tops! 103 is great. Fit and finish are excellent . The sound is reasonable. The heat output is a little much with the lowers on on a hot day. Rem... Read Full Review
