A Harley With Chrome Is All You Need

If you are a fan of cruising the highways, scenic trails, and dangerous mountain passes on two-wheel instead of four, chances are you are also a fan of Harley Davidson. Anyone has ridden a Harley will tell you that there is just a little something special about them. The feel of two wheels on the road, the roar of the engines, and the feel of wind set these machines apart from anything a car could provide. The only thing that could make it better? Chrome.

The Harley Davidson Softail

The Harley Davidson Softail is one of the most favorited bikes on the market. It’s easy to see why, too. You can buy a standard 2005 Softail for around $15,000 used, and it won’t leave you disappointed. Get some iconic flames painted on the side and there is only one thing that could make this cruiser look even better: a little touch of chrome detailing. That isn’t all this bolt-on kit provides, and it’s not even the best part.

A little touch of chrome

The shine of chrome as a Harley Davidson Softail passes by you will undoubtedly cause you to take a second glance — if it isn’t speeding out of your view yet. If you’re a fan of the chromed detailing, you’ll probably love the Screamin’ Eagle packages that you can get on many of the brand’s motorcycles. If you’ve already purchased your Harley and you missed out on this feature, don’t worry, because you can add a lot of the pieces on pretty easily.

Improved performance

The Screamin’ Eagle package isn’t just shiny, it improves the bike’s performance. If you didn’t enjoy your Harley Davidson enough, or maybe you just like the added power, there are several components of the package that you can choose from. In fact, there are so many pieces to the Screamin’ Eagle package that you could easily spend what the bike is worth just in parts, pieces, and tunes. Owners will tell you that the difference is worth the cost, and if you’ve ever heard the phrase “smiles per mile” it couldn’t be any more true than for this package.

The Screamin’ Eagle package is available directly from Harley Davidson themselves, which may ease owners who aren’t a fan of aftermarket modifications. You can buy motorcycles like the Softail already equipped with these sporty enhancements, or you can always opt for them later. Either way, this performance, and cosmetic enhancements won’t leave you disappointed.
