Harley-Davidson Reveals Project Rushmore Features for 2014

Just saw an interview on the CBS Morning Show with the CEO of Harley-Davidson. He was talking about the "Project Rushmore" motorcycles that are part of the 2014 lineup. I'd been hearing about Project Rushmore but never seemed to be able to get through to their website. I tried again and got in.

They have a fancy video that displays a bunch of new Harley features. I went to my Motorcycle Views Harley-Davidson models page that lists all the models and updated it to include the 2014 models.

Turns out that the Project Rushmore features are confined to the Touring models and the Tri Glide Trike.

So, take a look at the complete list of 2014 Harley-Davidson models and see what the Motor Company has to offer for 2014. Take a look.
