I recently took a look at a  Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle while visiting my local Harley showroom here in New Jersey.  I should have taken a photo of the two-up seat because that’s as close to a living room as I have seen on a motorcycle. Mount Analysis The photo that accompanies this article is of a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic cockpit.  There are two excellent locations for mounting a device in the handlebar and clutch.  That’s typical for many Harley models.  While I suppose we could also go with a gas tank mount, I think it would look … Read more

Mounts for the Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited Motorcycle
