2008 Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic.

Posted in Motorcycles with tags , , , on February 2, 2019 by DRF

For those that have read my earlier posts, you may recall I purchased a used 2007 Ultra Classic a couple of months ago. After riding it, I just didn’t feel it was right for me. It’s hard to explain, it just wasn’t for me. So, I’ve traded it in for this one. A used 2008 Heritage Softail Classic. It only has 16,000 miles on it! An 11 year old bike! Crazy huh? Whoever had this put a lot of extras on it. Lots of chrome, new pipes, seats, LED headlight to mention a few. I’m not too crazy about so much “bling”, but maybe it’ll grow on me.

I’ve received my 80,000 mile patch from the Harley Owners group. This is the number of miles I’ve ridden the Harley-Davidson motorcycles I’ve owned over the years. Next patch is for 100,000 miles. It may take a couple years, but I’ll get it!

Here’s a couple pictures of my vest will all the patches. I’ve added and removed several over the years.

I Bought Another Motorcycle!

Posted in American Biker, Arizona, Biker, Harley-Davidson, Harley-Davidson Dealers, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, U.S.A., Washington on December 7, 2018 by DRF

I’ve been looking for a 2nd motorcycle now for a few months.

I want a second (backup) motorcycle so when my brother, my son or best friend comes to visit (without their motorcycles) we can take a ride together. This way they won’t need to rent one at about $120 per day.  Crazy prices huh?  Or is it Just an excuse for another motorcycle?

I wasn’t in a hurry since I already had a bike.

I had three requirements.

– First it needs to be a Harley-Davidson. I’ve had Harley’s for so long now, I don’t want to change. It’s what I like!

– Second, It must be a 2007 or newer. That’s the year Harley changed from 5 speed to 6. It’s easier on the motor and makes a noticeable difference on long rides at highway speeds.

– Third, my price limit is $7,000. I don’t want to spend too much on a second motorcycle.

After searching off and on for a few months, I found one 1,500 miles away, in Washington, the same town as my brother. How nice is that? Not very convenient for me since it’s so far away, but at least I have a place to keep it until I can get out there and ride it home. And the price had just been reduced to $6,999. I don’t think their selling many bikes right now due to the weather, and the new models are arriving.

So I bought it over the phone! I had enough air miles saved up for a round trip ticket, so I flew out to take care of the paperwork last weekend.

My new, used 2007 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic.

Now I just need to find time to go back and get it. Winter is settling in and with the possibility of ice on the roads in the northwest USA, it may not be the best time of year to ride it back to Arizona.

So I’ll try and be patient and wait!
