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!

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
