2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide®
The two most popular H-D® touring motorcycles at our dealership serving Columbia Maryland and throughout North America are the Street Glide® and Road Glide®. Both are built on the Grand American Touring chassis, but the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® near Columbia has the batwing or fork-mounted fairing whereas the Road Glide® has the shark nose or frame-mounted fairing. The Street Glide® is also a bit heavier and a tad longer. Outside of that, these models are very similar, but the trend among everyday riders has been for the Street Glide® due to what many consider the more versatile fairing.
Performance & Ride Characteristics

This Is the Right Bike For
The Street Glide® caters to a diverse group of riders. On one hand, it’s an excellent choice for the rider who wants to ride mile after mile and for hours on end while remaining comfortable and in control. On the other hand, many riders choose the Street Glide® as their daily ride as opposed to a cruiser. The touring platform provides better comfort. The tourer is better suited to commuting and running errands around town, and while the frame-mounted fairing may be better for the long ride, many riders prefer the fork-mounted fairing for its versatility.
