2012 HARLEY DAVIDSON SWITCHBACK
The Switchback is a convertible. Like its name suggests, a removable windscreen and quick-release saddlebags allow the owner to switch from tourer to cruiser in less than 30 seconds. Turning a dial inside each sealed, locking saddlebag and then sliding the case up and back quickly pops it off. Removing the scratch-resistant Lexan windscreen is even easier: Friction-fit to four rubber mounts, it just pulls forward and off. The Switchback is like having two bikes in one.
With or without its touring accoutrements, the Switchback looks great. Its low weight and reasonably aggressive geometry make the Switchback surprisingly fun to ride on twisty roads. Suspension travel is short but adequate and exceptionally well-tuned, while carefully balanced rake and trail deliver light, responsive steering.
