The Harley-pay attention to the dash because they value that in the marketing department - Davidson Electra Glide Police Special was such a workhorse. And the police were crazy about it.

Only when Harley-Davidson, under the black wings of AMF, reached a level of quality that forty years later every Russian motorcycle manufacturer would feel embarrassed did most law enforcement officials switch to motorcycles that were more reliable and almost as tough. Moto Guzzi and Kawasaki were very happy about that.

Fortunately Harley was fine again.

But the Glide is the AMK story in number 5, the May number again, is one the dream for every motorcycle enthusiast. Even if it doesn't have much to do with Het-Merk.

Simply because nature phenomena such as floods, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions simply make an incomparable impression.

The Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Police Special.

In AMK number five.
