After waiting 13 long months - my 2000 springer arrived in July of 2000. My dealer immediately contacted me so I could witness the uncrating. To say the day was better than any Christmas was an understatement. The aniticpation was bliss. Anyway - after pulling her out of her travel package...a relationship that will last for years had just been born. The dealer set to work - installing the aftermarket products on my wish list and the already star quality giant began to take on the gleaming custom that she was born to show. With the paperwork settled - I fired up the bike (Sampson Slip-on's) and with a patented pop - she game to life. That 10 mile drive home was one filled with smiles, giggles and absolute blood pumping nervana. The new 88b was smooth, sure, and possessed the right amount of rumble. I noticed right away the springer front end shinning and working the small road bumps. I know it now Touring Bike but impressive never the less. So would I recommned this bike? Well you have to ask yourself this - Do you like to be stared at? Asked questions everytime you park in public, enjoy polishing? Well if the answer is yes...then brother - go no further!!!

I sold my 89 FLHTC and bought a 2000 Harley Davidson Heritage Springer. My first "Brand New" bike after 20 years of riding. I love the way the bike looks and runs so far (though the "B" motor always sounds "Busy"). It lacks much ground clearance when cornering, but it handles very well for a bike of its type. I have 2,500 miles on the clock so far and love it to death, but have some comments for the folks in Milwaukee. First of all, the bike came with a seat that was really a torture device. No one at HD central could have sat on that seat for any amount of time and figured that it was comfortable - no one! I upgraded to the touring seat found in the HD catalog and it is a big improvement. I also changed the carb to a sreaming eagle mikuni and installed the screaming eagle racing muffs. What a difference they made for the better. (And yes, the carb was very easy to install - in fact I didn't even remove the tank - and perfectly jetted as it came out of the box.) The addition of a HD detachable windshield made the bike almost perfect, almost because regardless of what others say, this ain't no touring bike folks. It is smooth with the new engine, and reasonably comfy with the better seat, but if you like to ride all day when the sun is out - the long, low softail look that I fell in love with just isn't designed with long distance touring in mind. Stick with an FL if you plan to gobble up miles of highway in a given day. But if cruisin up and down the beach is your cup of tea, you will be very happy indeed. Now, if I can just get up the money for a big bore kit and a set of cams.....and the new Edelbrock heads look really choice don't they.....

I previously owned a Road King, but last week I purchased a 2000 model Heritage Springer. I love the new bike but only have 300 miles on it so I haven't been able to open it up yet. I can tell there's a dragon waiting to roar and I can't wait to unleash him. On the positive side, the new counter balanced engine is smooth. My son owns a 92 softail and you can't tell what's in the mirrors from the vibration. I do have a few unanswered questions. The first day I rode for 200 miles and my tail was sore from the seat. I found it to be less comfortable than the Road King. I hope this was due to new leather under my butt. I also found the front end to be unbalanced to the point you wouldn't want to turn loose of the handlebars (now I know that ain't safe, but we all do it to zip up a jacket or make an adjustment sometimes). One last comment. Why does HD waste everyone's time putting those pitiful foot pegs on their new bikes? Go ahead and give us what we eventually will change them to and charge us in the beginning. At least this will prevent having to recycle the new thrown away parts.

I live in Mass. and took delivery in mid-Oct., and have ridden almost 1,000 miles. I previously rode a 94 softail and the only similarity between the new softail and my previous is the name on the gas tank. The fit and finish has improved, the ride quality is exceptional, and the power of the new engine is crisp and smooth. The Heritage Springer satisfies my desire for a classic looking bike using modern-age components.
