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!

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
