Love the pics, everyone!

I started the thread because I got tired of searching the Softail threads for anything specific to the new Heritage. Now I can come to the Forums and find all my fellow Heritage Riders in one place!

The dealer I purchased from says he thinks the new Heritage is going to become the new "Street Glide" popularity wise. Not sure how you guys feel about it but as an ex-Street Glide rider I am nothing but happy with my decision to 'Downsize". Ride safe!

I'm not a real big fan of "louder is better", although, I did purchase a set of Rinehart Slip-ons that are still in the box. I like their look and sound I heard on youtube.

I have also purchased the HD SE oval Air Breather and a tuner.

I'll install both as soon as I recover from Back Surgery (done yesterday) in a week or so. Riding is about 4 weeks away.

Very glad for this '18 Heritage thread. Would love to hear more about the motors. Mine is a 114 with a SE Torque cam with the proper SE ECU download. Only 200 or so miles with the cam and really enjoy the torque.


The 103 in my '14 Road King never used a drop of oil between changes no matter how hard I ran it ie the rev limiter was set at 6K R's and hit it all the time. I'm thinking my 114 Heritage might be using oil, now has about 2,200 miles.


What are you guys seeing? I am going to pull the Derby this morning to see what the level is.

Default Water tight

OK all, here's a FLHC specific item. New for 2018 H-D claims they have water proof saddlebags. They don't. My left side bag has had 1/4" of standing waterboth after riding in the rain and after one washing. The right side bag remains dry. Any ideas ? thanks for ya help. Bob

Default My first Harley

I must say that I'm a happy camper with this bike.
So far, I've changed to LED signals and a lay down plate. The rest will come as the funds permit.

rcpbob,
Although I havn't riddenin the rain, my bike has benn out in the rain a few times and the bags have stayed dry.
So, I kinda think there is a crack, split or maybe the top dosen't close correctly on yours.
In any case I would think you would/should be talking to your dealer about replacing the bag.
H-D says they are waterproof, so since yours is leaking somewhere, it must be defective and should be eligible to be replaced under warentee.

Congrats. 107 or 114? Enjoy your new ride.
And BTW I see you can't quite flat foot your Heritage either.
I think I might be even a little shorter than you so I had the dealer put on a Reach seat even before leaving the showroom.
Now I'm about where you are...one foot yes, otheer foot on ball of foot.
I can reccomend the Reach seat in case you are interested.

Mine is my daily commuter. Tunes and a 40 minute ride each way is about perfect. There are a few twists and turns and fast spots on the ride and I’m really enjoying it.

This is the lowest bike I've owned, my last bike was a CTX1300 with a 29" seat height, got me in trouble a few times.
You are right, one foot flat and the other about half an inch off. I'm in need of new boots so I might try that route first, The stock seat is very comfortable.
The is a 107 and a daily commuter, it's also parked outside with no cover (on the wet coast) and no leaky bags. Sounds like you might have a faulty bag or leaky lock mechanism.

Mine not leaking...that was rcpbob.

I would like to install H-D's lowering kits for Rear and Front, but the $$$ are just to big right now.

BTW, I can see you have the same helmet that I have...good taste.
