Performance Machine's Gold Standard: 2012 Road Glide

By | General Posts

Hey, check out what's been happening over at Performance Machine!

Let’s get one thing straight: there is nothing inherently wrong with boring. Seeing as boring is often synonymous with effective, we’ll admit that boring can get the job done just fine, but life is just too dang short to settle for the blah and uninspiring. By now you should know that we don’t do boring here at Performance Machine, we prefer to push the boundaries, explore new concepts and customize with an end result that is as entrancing as it is effective. Consider if you will, this 2012 Harley Davidson FLTRX:

 

This is a perfectly acceptable bike. This is a bike that will get you where you need to be with relative ease and in comfort. There is nothing wrong with this bike, just like there is nothing wrong with getting plain vanilla every time you go out for ice cream, aside from the fact that it is yawn-inducing. We think bikes should illicit double takes, stares, envy and admiration, which is why we took this Road Glide and turned it into this:

 

With our Contrast Cut Icon wheels featured prominently against a beautiful gold paint job by Matt Polosku of Color Zone Designs, this is a bike worth taking another look at. All parts and part numbers can be found here, and ordered through a Performance Machine sales representative, easily reached at (800) 479-4037.

So what are you waiting for? Ditch the everyday and dream up something extraordinary.

Actually, it’s more like six-of-a-kind with the company offering half a dozen variations in sport (RS) and touring (RT) models for 2012. Parent company BRP claims that it is not a motorcycle company, that they have invented a new industry with its line-up of three-wheeled Rotax-built 998cc, 60-degree V-twin “roadsters.” Of the six roadsters offered this year, four of them come in a choice of manual or semi-automatic transmissions.

Midnight Rider: The Road to Nowhere- EPISODE 8

By | General Posts

It’s mid-week,10:00am in the morning and I just bought a fifth of Jack Daniels, pack of American Spirits and head back to my haunted room. Half a million missing yearly, human trafficking, Parts Men harvesting human organs, Voodoo witches selling hearts for demonic rituals….what the hell is next?  Zombies and vampires! This started as a story about riding motorcycles at night; I had used up 55 hours in 6 days travel and technically had 5 hours of ride time left tomorrow; the seventh day. Nothing about that story matters anymore.  READ MORE
