Road King a touring model bike from the big brand 'Harley Davidson' is a ride that is worth its cost. The long range Hiawatha head lamp crowned by a tall wind shield in the front, 22 liter fuel tank and two large volume saddle bags at rear would content a tourist rider. The anti lock braking system equips the machine with a good control of its braking. This keeps the bike safe from varied friction between the wheels and road which may result in skidding. The 28 spoke cast aluminum wheels covered by finely finished fenders at front and rear, the chrome plated fork and front lamp assembly, 2-1-2 chrome exhaust that runs on either sides of the Road King from the V twin layout, a lean back riding posture gifted from a wide handle bar and a soft saddle can only increase the value of an explorer's ride by coupling luxury with elegance.
