It’s time for another retro test. This is a throwback from 2012. We test a rare ride—a Dyna touring motorcycle. The 2012 Harley-Davidson Switchback had quick-release windshield and bags, so you could cruise in-town and take to the open road for an epic trip. —Ed.
With its roots in the CVO Convertible, the 2012 Harley-Davidson Switchback is both a custom cruiser and tourer. Fantastically quick-detach (and reattach) hard bags and windshield alter both the form and function of the Switchback, and it manages to inhabit both genres with impressive competence—and the change can be made in less than 100 seconds.
