All 4 run the Screaminí Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine plus the Road Glide and Electra Glide are built on the new touring frame. The Road Glide, shown above, in the orange and black paint is a pretty nice looking bagger and the Ultra Classic seems like it would be one very comfortable and capable cross country machine.
