My partner watched it and said his description of me as an ADV rider was spot on. Dad jeans!

I still think they got their styling cues from the legendary Ski Daddler.

Don't think it came from the Road Glide?

Just because you put a kitten in the oven doesn't make it a biscuit!!

That was entertaining and here I've got a Road Glide and a Uly...I'm doomed!

Would have been a truly excellent name.

Agreed. "Dirt Glide" is a damn great name : )

They should make a twincam flat tracker for the sake of having that name.

That guys rants are so spot on! Amazing, and yes I will be checking out this bike when it comes out.

If it ships with knobbys and sub-100hp, it better be $10k or less as it will get crushed in the market. I would consider a Yamaha Super Tenere over it.

If it comes out with semi-street tires and 150hp, I will stop shopping Ducatis and BMW.

Of course my wife will shoot me if I drop a deposit on a bike this time next year. She will get over it.

I have been calling Uellymae (07 12x) a tweezerglide for a number of years now. A lot less girth than my 96 road king for sure.
Dirt glide absolutely fits this newest abomination!

Harley had a great adventure bike. It was called the Buell Ulysses. Then CEO Wandell decided to pull the plug on Buell because it wasn't adding to the bottom line. I just wonder how much this new model will add.
Harley is screaming because of sales decline. Maybe they need to thin the herd. Lets face it they have too many models in the line up.

Buell was making a profit and adding to the bottom line. Harley buying MV Agusta and then selling it for a huge loss are two huge mistakes and the third one was pulling the rug out from under Buell! So let me repeat myself, Wandell's an idiot!

Wandel also lacked many of the skills, leadership and character of leaders who preceded him.

I had but one interaction and fond his style, manners and demeanor distasteful.

Do you suppose it was because he never rode a motorcycle? Is that an odd rumor or actually true? How does that even happen? OMG

Just watched that video. Hilarious. Thx for sharing. What Harley needs to do to differentiate is to offer an optional, bolt on side car that utilizes a PTO out the side of the gear case so now you have two wheel drive like Ural. But make it look nicer.
Iíd love to see that option

So since this dropped back in September, has anyone seen or heard of any updates?

I'm still curious as to how the final product may look. We all know those old pictures were prototype and they may have even been feeling out the crowd for reaction to a somewhat radical design.

I do a quick google search once in a while, but see nothing new.

It has been very quiet. Nothing about the Pan America nor the Streetfighter. All recent news is about Livewire.

Holy F!! Totally custom. Lots of one-off parts in that animal. It looks like an africa twin with an HD transplanted into it!!

Not sure what the white lights in the rear are for. But wow, does it sound awesome!

I think that IS an Africa Twin headlight...that thing would weigh a TON with the twincam in it, good LAWD. Don't know that I'd want to take it off pavement...

Anyone know how heavy a twinkie+transmission weigh?

I would wager more heavy than my first bike(KLR250)

I was combing through the Pan America thread on Adventure Rider. Many guys are hitting up motorcycle shows and none have seen any updates or prototypes on display.

In fact, many say they have not seen the Livewire, which is supposed to ship earlier. If they want this thing on the market as a 2020, they better get the hype machine fired up. I only have small windows to slip a deposit past the wife!
