Just joined in Oregon
« on: December 18, 2017, 05:02:49 PM »
I ride a 2018 Heritage Softail 114 which I just traded a 2011 Electra Glide Ultra 103 for.  Thru the 90's I had 3 Fatboys which were preceded by a 1989 Springer.  For most of the 70's and 80's I rode Shovelheads but started out in the 60's with a 1955 KHK 888 cc flathead.

Greetings, curious how you are loving your new 2018 HD.

The 2018 Heritage 114 is by far the best bike I have owned.  It is really nimble and quick bone stock.  I especially love the low end torque and, while I am known to blast off often winding up thru the gears, most of my riding is right in its torque band.  I find the clutch a pleasure.  It's easy to pull and hold in traffic and very smooth letting it out.  I'm not sure how I feel about the mini-apes though.  I used to FL controls and, while I had over-the-shoulder apes once, I am positive I have way more steering control half way between the waist and shoulders.  I'm going to leave it that way for the winter (yes, I ride all year here in western Oregon) and give it a chance.  The rest of the bike is near perfect for me.  I sure love the 250 lbs. of weight (less than my Ultra) I don't have to hoss around in town.  I'll bet I can even pick it up without a hernia if (I should say when) it tips over for whatever reason.
