We can’t call it “all-new” but our ride on the stripped-down bagger from Milwaukee revealed a user-friendly collection of touring amenities and familiar ergos at a reasonable price.
If you’ve ever heard the expression “that which is done is that which shall be done,” then you know the premise for Harley’s latest Touring model, the 2019 Electra Glide Standard. Notice we didn’t say “new”—because, well, it’s not. What it is is a reintroduction of a previous model that basically went away after the Street Glide muscled in as H-D’s top seller back in 2009, obviating the need for a stripped-down base model. But in a sea of high-tech land yachts, the Standard is hoping to capture the Luddites among us who just want to get out and ride in peace, unconnected and undisturbed.
