Bought a '07 Harley Softail Heritage Classic !!

Recommended Posts

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.

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!

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
