I purchased a 2017 Deluxe so I could get the last good model with a softer rider and proven workmanship.

Love this bike, it is a great solo bike and with add ons, you can make it a touring bike. rode 5000 miles coast to coast in less than 11 days and enjoyed every minute of it, especially with a Corbin seat and back rest.

The bike speaks for itself, Harley finally made inroads to a better riding and operating motorcycle. Reliability remains to be seen! I worked with Cody at Honda of Marysville in Ohio and was treated excellent. Cody is an excellent guy to work with. His knowledge and availability for fielding questions is spot on. All in all my experience was one of if not the best ever!

I purchased an extremely well maintained Harley with 10,000 miles from an individual in Texas. Looks new and rides like a dream. I paid less than dealer retail. Very smooth transaction all the way around. I hired a local motorcycle transport company in Houston (Marx Motorcycle Moving) to go to Dallas and pick it up and deliver it back to me.

I traded a 1989 883 Sportster. What a difference - smooth, can see in the mirrors, ride 300 miles and feel like I got out of a car. My feet are flat on the ground with a 28" inseam.

I traded a 1989 883 Sportster. What a difference - smooth, can see in the mirrors, ride 300 miles and feel like I got out of a car. My feet are flat on the ground with a 28" inseam. There's plenty of power for my wife and me. The low center of gravity makes it easy to handle. Everywhere I go, people compliment the bike's looks - white/blue pearl. I get 42/52 mpg. I plan to add an oil cooler. I wish it came stock with one. I wish it had key fob security like the newer bikes. I get a lot of boot marks on the heat shields of the pipes...only complaint.

I really did love this bike. Great styling. I especially loved the 24.5 seat height. Easy to handle and very well balanced. I would especially suggest this bike for shorter men or women. I love having my feet flat on the ground. I wear a helmet and had some wind buffeting. The fork wind deflectors and shorter windshield solved the problem. I had problems with the seat. Too hard for long distances. Handlebars also vibrated on the interstate. Installed the Snake and this really helped. Bike needed more power. This can be accomplished with the new air intake, pipes, and dyno. I suggest this. Lovely bike. I recommend it.

I've owned quite a few bikes over the years; everything from Sportsters to V-Rods, Electra-Glide to Road King and a few metric bikes thrown in.

I've owned quite a few bikes over the years; everything from Sportsters to V-Rods, Electra-Glide to Road King and a few metric bikes thrown in. If you're looking for a great all round ride for town and highway, the Softail Deluxe is hard to beat. The balance is amazing for a 700 lb. machine. It feels much lighter. Some say the Heritage will give you more for your money because the bags and windshield are included, but I found the Heritage didn't feel quite the same as the Deluxe. Everyone's tastes are different, but for me I've found my bike. I'm looking forward to many enjoyable miles.
