Bought a '07 Harley Softail Heritage Classic !!

4 posts in this topic

Well, I did it!

Bought a slightly used 2007 Harley Softail Heritage Classic. It had only 1400 miles on it!

It has screaming eagle pipes, K&N Air Kit, Screaming Eagle Tuner Kit with printouts, etc. Nice grips & more chrome. Got a great deal on it and it looks brand new!

Will be getting a Sundowner seat (or a more comfortable one if recommended), Chrome Levers, Shop Manual.

I'm a 1st time ever Harley owner, had a Vulcan 750 several years ago.

Any particular options you recommend...?

Thanks much!!

I had a sundowner seat on my wide glide... I loved it. Much more comfortable. If it doesn't have highway pegs, I'd recommend a set. It's nice on longer rides to have a couple foot positions to choose from.

I also had screaming eagle II pipes on it. I tried to take it easy in the mornings on the way to work but I live in a more rural area and most of my neighbors know I ride and haven't complained yet. It pays to think of your neighbors. My Ultra Classic is louder though, so I have to be more careful. You'll probably appreciate saddle bags if you don't have a set already. It's nice to throw an extra jacket in or some raingear.

Congrats on your new ride.

Congratulations on the new bike.

Hope you like it as much as I like my 2003 Harley Softail Ultra Classic. I have 23000 trouble free miles on it and have seen a lot of this beautiful country on it.

Thanks!

Well, I put on over 1,700 miles in just less than a month. What a ride! This seat is alright, so I'll stay with it...

Two days ago I went to Wabasha & back (240 miles) & yesterday went to Luck Wis. the scenic ways.

I put Amsoil in everything, sure was a lot of metal flakes in the Tranny... Runs pretty good!

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
