Riding The 2017 Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight-Powered FL Models Review : More road, more glide

It only took about five minutes mired in rush-hour traffic crawling along the I-94 East heading into downtown Milwaukee for me to appreciate the attributes of the new Milwaukee-Eight-powered touring models I’d spent the earlier part of the day riding at Black Hawk Farms Raceway, a road course located in South Beloit, Illinois.

I was aboard a 2016 Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B CVO Softail Pro Street Breakout, and the high heat and humidity of a sweltering Midwestern summer day were taking their toll in this stop-and-go procession. Not only were my inner thighs on fire, but my left forearm had also begun to scream due to the factory hot rod’s high-effort clutch pull. I now truly understood the greatest attributes of the all-new Milwaukee-Eight power­train and am happy to report that the new 107ci 2017 Big Twin models have thoroughly addressed these issues and more while delivering 110ci-level engine performance.
