@ 5500 rpm
review by Giles Hamilton
I've just sold my 2004 Harley Davidson Dyna Glide Sport. Typically
of Harleys it is woefully short of power and vibrates like a
1950s dryer. But untypically of Harleys it handles very well
indeed. It also has adjustable front forks - something not present
on any other Harley I've owned since 1982. It also is stable
in cross winds. The lamentable 50 bhp of the standard bike needs
to be increased with some easily available enhancement kits.
It is a very nice looking bike; relatively stripped down with
a black engine and only a small amount of the garish, high maintenance
chrome present on most other models.
Two interesting points. 1. Although they sold poorly, second
hand they are in demand. Warr's sold mine in 10 minutes of showing
it and have a list of buyers. A testament to its useability
and 2. I've replaced it with the much more powerful Night Rod
whose handling is woeful and whose dimensions make it lethal
in a cross wind. I miss the Dyna.
