  • Windshields... they do more than kill bugs.

    Click HERE for June 2017's Windshield Promotion!

    Bucking the wind is a natural part of riding and while the idea of a little wind in your face ins romantic and enjoyable, a steady barrage of the gusty element can be downright tiring.  A proper windshield helps manage airflow around the front of the motorcycle tames wind blasts and creates a pocket of still air for improved rider and passenger comfort.  To help you determine which windshield is best for you, here’s some Windshield 411 on going from windblown fatigue to easy aerodynamic riding by selecting the right windshield.

    Windshields are available in multiple styles and heights to accommodate your individual needs.  The trick is to select the right size and style of windshield for your bike, riding style and conditions.  Proper height allows you to look over the windshield while the airflow rises up and over the top of your head.  To avoid looking through bug spats and road grime, choose a windshield that tops out just below your line of sight.  To further protect you from the elements, create an air management system by combining windshields with air deflectors.  All Harley-Davidson windshields are made from hard-coated polycarbonate – a tough, resilient material that resists abrasion and scratching and offers protection from rocks and other road debris.

    Fork Mounted Windshields
    They are available in both detachable and quick-release designs.  Quick-release windshields attach to a bike’s front tubes with a stylish die cast lever locking clamps that result in a clean custom look without the leave behind docking hardware. Fork Mounted shields are quick to attach or detach, and the transition requires no tools.

    • Sport
    • Compact
    • King
    • Ventilator
    • Wind Splitter

    Fairing-Mounted Windshields
    The next options are windshields that offer protection and style for bikes with a fixed fairing.

    • Standard
    • Wind Splitter

    Air and Wind Deflectors
    Deflectors are designed to maximize rider comfort by extending the windshield’s coverage for superior protection in any weather.

    • Adjustable Air Deflectors
    • Road Glide Wind Deflectors
    • Soft Lowers
    • Fork-Mounted Wind Deflectors
    TAKE A WINDSHIELD ON A DEMO RIDE!

    Gateway Harley-Davidson offers demo rides for windshields in our Windshield Demo Program, so you can try before you buy to avoid purchasing a windshield that doesn’t fit your needs.


    Harley-Davidson, Sailor Jerry to give away 22 custom bikes!

    A partnership between two timeless institutions.
    May 2, 2017

    MILWAUKEE

    Twenty-two bikes were on display at the Harley-Davidson museum in Milwaukee Tuesday morning as part of the announcement of the multi-year partnership between Harley-Davidson and Sailor Jerry's Spice Rum.

    Sailor Jerry's had artists from all over the country design and paint the bikes. Sailor Jerry -- aka Norman Collins -- was a tattoo artist who lived in Hawaii from the 1930s until the 1970s and is widely considered one of the godfathers of modern tattoo art.

      A Sweepstakes will determine the winner of these unique bikes.

    "This partnership between Sailor Jerry and Harley-Davidson was such a no brainer. These two iconic Americana brands really make sense to come together," said Ashley Marsh, a brand ambassador for Sailor Jerry’s. "Between the artistic-ness (sic) of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins and the straight art and freedom of Harley-Davidson."

    The bikes will be available for viewing at locations around the country throughout the summer and will later be available for ownership through a sweepstakes thrown by Sailor Jerry Spice Rum.


    Harley-Davidson Unveils Its First New Engine in 15 Years

    The Milwaukee-Eight is the ninth Big Twin engine in the company's 113-year history.
    By Jay Bennett Aug 29, 2016

    Harley-Davidson's Big Twin is the heart and soul of America's most famous touring bikes. As Cycle World put it: "If ever an engine inspired religious fervor, this is it." This fall the icon gets an upgrade.

    Last week Harley unveiled the ninth iteration of the Big Twin, named the Milwaukee-Eight for Harley's hometown and the eight valves on the new engine (four in each cylinder). With 50 percent more intake and exhaust flow and a revamped cooling system that allows the engine to work harder without overheating, the Milwaukee-Eight produces 10 percent more torque than its predecessor, the Twin Cam, according to Harley.

    The 107-cubic-inch (1,750cc) Milwaukee-Eight is replacing the Twin Cam on Harley's 2017 touring bikes, including the Street Glide, Road Glide, Road King, and Electra Glide models. They will start arriving at dealerships around the country this week. The CVO Limited and CVO Street Glide will get the massive 114ci (1,870cc) version of the Milwaukee-Eight, and there is speculation that the 107ci engine will eventually become the standard on other bikes such as the Heritage Softail. That would be the first rubber-mounted engine on that classic design.

    "We want all riders to save the date of Sept. 23," said Dino Bernacchi, Director of U.S. Marketing at Harley-Davidson, in a press release. "That weekend, Harley-Davidson dealers across the country will host open house events so riders can throw a leg over our Model Year 2017 touring motorcycles and feel the difference of the all-new Milwaukee-Eight engine for themselves."

    The primary upgrade to the Big Twin is "strategic cooling" technologies, the result of thousands of hours of predictive computer modeling. The engine will produce more power, so it's going to generate more heat, thus the need for clever cooling tricks. Coolant is pumped through a heart-shaped passage that wraps around the "exhaust bridge" that separates the valves of each cylinder head—a small metal section that is heated from both sides of the combustion chamber.

    In addition, the shallow, four-valve combustion chambers of the Milwaukee-Eight absorb less heat than the deep, two-valve, modified hemi chambers used on the Twin Cam. The new shallow valve design combined with faster combustion from two spark plugs per cylinder keeps some heat from being absorbed by pistons and heads. This traps the hot gas in the combustion chamber where it translates to power and torque. A redesigned exhaust system and large-area cooling fins displace that heat away from the rider and passenger.

    The new engine also cuts down on mechanical noise by replacing old gear configurations with a drive that uses a chain and automatic hydraulic tensioner. The reduced number of moving parts means less noise and lower friction, and it also means the engine will have a slightly different sound. As Harley told Cycle World, "We're killing the noise so we can keep the music."

    A challenge for large-displacement two-cylinder engines has always been smoothing the short bursts of torque into a steady rate of acceleration and a smooth ride. To accomplish this, the electronic control module (ECM) of the Milwaukee-Eight was reprogrammed to interpret different throttle positions as calls for various amounts of torque output. Harley says it also used a counter-rotating internal balancer to negate 75 percent of the engine's shaking. When Harley cut down the engine shaking even more, test riders rejected the new completely-smooth idle, prompting engineers to purposefully retain some of that idle vibration that lets you know you're riding a Harley.

    Thanks to those upgrades, the Milwaukee-Eight can ran at high compression ratios—as high as 10.5:1. As a result, bikes equipped with the new Big Twin are two to three bike lengths quicker in a 0-to-60 mph sprint and one to two lengths quicker when accelerating in top gear from 60 to 80 mph, according to Cycle World.

    The new engine is being rolled out with a revamped suspension system that uses "dual bending valve fork technology" for a smoother ride without compromising control. When the fork is at rest, the damping fluid is partially blocked by a thin washer to keep the suspension more rigid for enhanced control. But when the suspension is compressed, damping fluid gradually moves the free edge of the washer out of the way to increase the volume of the flow path to allow more absorption of bumps in the road.

    The end result of all this engine tech is Harley striving for the best of both worlds. The smoother ride quality should appeal to a wider range of riders, though the Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer intentionally retained some of the V-twin rattle that longtime Harley-riders have grown to know and love. With the entire touring line upgraded to the Milwaukee-Eight Big Twin, and an electric motorcycle on the horizon, what it means to be a Harley is something that's roaring into the future.
