The Catskills on the 2014 Harley Davidson Street Glide

Harley recently launched Project Rushmore which represents some significant if not monumental changes for Harley's high-end touring models. Harley Davidson kindly lent me the 2014 Street Glide, in metalic orange, so I could take it out and experience the difference for myself.

This is my first trip on a Harley. The destination? The Catskills for a few thousand miles of R&R; weather is expected to be spectacular all weekend!

The new hard saddlebags fit everything I need for the weekend. Clearly, I over packed. I especially like the one-hand latch handles located between the seat and bags - easy to open, even with gloves on.

I'll also be testing the EatSleepRIDE App and CrashLight with my new iPhone 5S. Now that my music finally synced, I can have it playing in the background as I record my ride. If you're in the Catskills or around NY, use the ESR App to Find Nearby riders and you'll see me.

I've kissed the wife and kids and I'm off. Review of the 2014 Street Glide upon my return. Eat Sleep RIDE!

I've always been curious about how the ride is with that giant shield across the front.

@jordan Yes, it's orange but it's actually a really nice orange on person. A very subtle metal flake. More impressions will come soon but the teaser is its good...
