Waited to write this review until after my trip to Milwaulkee Wi. 4000 miles in 9 days, a pretty good test. It does have a pretty heavy front end, not uncomfortable though, especially be careful when the road is wet. Have heard the seat is not very friendly, it just needs to be broke in. Also a padded backrest for the seat bar is a must. After the trip and during I never had soreness, butt or back. I also have 16" apes installed which turn you into a sail in the wind. Overall the bike ran beautifully, no problems whatsoever. Styling is grade "A". A very unique look for those who like retro production bikes.

I have logged 500 miles on my new 2003 HS. All I can say is WOW!. The bike has an incredibly smooth, comfortable ride that's a joy going through the canyons or on the open plains. The Ride: Before I bought a Springer I read reviews that mentioned a "heavy" or "stiff" front end. After 500 miles of riding, I have no idea what those reviews were referring to because this is one incredibly smooth, comfortable ride and it has never once felt stiff or heavy. I put 3,000 combined miles on a night train and fatboy last year and the Heritage Springer is head and shoulders above those models in comfort, handling and ride position...that is my humble opinion. Appearance: If you ask me, the heritage springer is the most unique model in the HD lineup. The front end is just a work of art, bottom line. It's sculpture in chrome...a direct throwback to the bikes Harley made in the 30's and 40's. When I ride and look at this bike, I feel like I'm back in the 1930's or 40's style-wise while enjoying all the benefits of modern technology for a smooth ride. When you ride the bike you see the springs working up by the stem...very cool. The valanced fenders, the fishtail pipes, the shaped tail-light, the light on the front fender, the basket weave bags and saddle, etc., are all beautifully detailed styling features that just set this bike apart from all other stock HDs. HD is no longer making the Heritage Springer after 2003....I got real lucky and found one after calling 7 other dealers all of which had sold their inventory for all of 2003. Some even mentioned that they had a run on them after the word got out that HD is no longer making them after '03. The springer is different, you don't see many of them, but they are great rides and even better lookers. No one outside a biker bar or an HD dealership ever stopped to look at my night train or fat boy, but in just a few weeks there have been dozens of people that stop and stare at my '03 HS...I like that.

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!!!

It is a very nice ride. You feel like you are part of the motorcycle. It makes a lot of people stand and look at you and your HD. Ihave a 1999 flsts and have a 2001 on order.

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.
