This was David's last motorcycle, a 2001 Harley-Davidson Road Glide in vivid black. The
H-D model designation is the FLTRI. It's a fuel
injected, 88 CID (1450 cc, twin cam 88) V-twin full dress
touring bike. We bought it at Iron Block Harley-Davidson
in Adams NY in early spring 2001.
In addition to being David's two-wheel
transportation, it was also our traveling vehicle on a
number of occasions. We have traveled on the Road Glide
down the Blue Ridge Parkway from Virginia to Gatlinburg TN,
and then from there to Nashville and Memphis to Branson MO.
It has taken us on a lighthouse trip to Wisconsin and Michigan, sightseeing in New England,
as well as a number of other shorter trips. Our best
estimate is that we rode it in 19 different states as well as
All good things must come to an end.
Although we enjoyed riding and David loved this bike,
we decided to sell it. It was sold to a man in Pulaski
on July 5, 2008 and left the yard at the cottage two days
later with the Cycle-Mate trailer behind it.
