From a handling standpoint, this bike severely spanks my previous ride and this one's bone stock. The 114 is deceptively fast. I'm waiting for Bassani to release their Road Rage 2 into 1 pipe so the Granny from Pasadena will hear me when I'm next to her and she'll be less likely to make me her door ornament. I've only got 750 miles on this one (I had 96k miles on the Street Glide) and I'm looking forward to many more. The potential on this bike is amazing. I'm not missing the tour platform at all on this ride. Congratulations brother on your new ride!
Damn that color combo is stunning! I probably would have pulled the trigger on that Anniversary bike but there was none in stock on the day I decided to buy!

Gorgeous Bike!

Default '18 flhc

Great idea WarHorse, all things '18 Softail Heritage.
Here's mine 1. short H-D passenger backrest 2. Rifle 22" clear shield that's +3" wider than stock 3. H-D "fangs" that were on my old FLSTC 4. Rush Racing 3" slip-ons w/2 1/4" baffles. 5. Custom Dymanics LED tag frame/lay down plate mount and RTB turn signals. 6. Kuryakyn LED laydown tail light 7. H-D black mustache engine guard
On the wish list V&H FP3 Bluetooth and S&S air cleaner. Only 700 miles so far .
All I can say, even with "only" the 107, the motor is very strong and smooth. First rate ride and handling . Harley, once you get over the "new age" style, you hit this one out of the park !
By the way, great lookin' bikes everyone. Ride On ! Bob

The Fangs on my Heritage are off of my '14 Road King. Required drilling new holes to fit.


I want some Black ones also................I think. The Chrome looks good with the Black.

You all make me jealous, mine has been sitting ln the garage since December and probably will not get to ride it until April. No test ride, purchased after sitting on one in showroom. Comming from 16 RoadGlide.

Oh, that's nice!!!!!!!
Nothing at all bad about the 107! If my dealer had one in Vivid Black I may have pulled the trigger and saved myself some scratch!

Default I'm Jealous

[QUOTE=Another Old Timer;17096146]

I'm jealous, not of your bike, but of your garage and your bike lift. I love my Heritage.
However, I live in Florida with only a carport for my Vehicles. My Heritage has to share space with two cars. Tight fit. Did install a wheel chock to make it easier to work on the bike.
If I did not have to move again, I'd look for a home with a gatrage, a big garage. But....bought the house first then the bike.


Yes I even keep it locked up with a cable.

I think if you go all black then black fangs would be great. However, on any of the Heritage's with a paint color other than black, in my opinion the chrome Fangs look more appropriate. They add just a nice balance of chrome to the
black out parts in keeping with the chrome parts on the front of the bike. Here is my bad "Cherry".

Ya... It might be a hard choice... But in general I agree. I like a little chrome with the black to give it pop/contrast. The chrome ones look good on your bike... And those that say the fangs are ugly... I don't get it. I think they look right at home with the windshield in place. If you take the windshield off to ride naked then the fangs would have to come off too (or they create their own buffeting problems - when used without the windshield - I hear).

I've mixed chrome and black too, I have the black engine guard with chrome highway pegs, the chrome sissy bar (the slightly longer one) and chrome luggage rack, chrome shifter linkage and a chrome shifter pedal on the black shifter. At some point I'll change out my grips, probably something with chrome. I have black clutch and brake levers. I like how the chrome and black are interchangeable.

Not looking for slipons yet, I'm actually enjoying the quieter sound from the pipes and can hear my music.
