RAT... No argument from me... including the FLSTC color! Looks like The V&H BSS's or the Python equivalent delivering the music. Big sound eh?
Yep. V&H's, Not too Loud and Not too soft..:ride

TY :cool:

Love mine even the stupid carb... which I guess is now vintage
Oooo, no way. Love carburetion. The sound is inimitable! I'm at 8800ft elev and have specifically ordered carbed H-D's for the great performance they deliver year round here... regardless of altitude or temps. I know FI is top shelf, having rented many H-D FI bikes, and I know carb is no longer offered, but if/when I get an FI bike some year, it will be reluctantly.

Great bike.

Here's mine

Nice.Clean.That garage has to be new!
Is that an after market stock width passenger seat or is the bike a 99 model? We've been looking for a stock width pass seat with the silver buttons to match the back rest and front seat.

The garage is 20 years old (I had the house built 20 years ago) and the neighbors give me heck for the cleanliness of it. We do allot of laughing about it over beers while standing in the garage (it gives them an excuse to come over for beer!), even in the winter as I have a 45,000 furnace that heats only the garage.

The bike is an 04 and the passenger seat was a Harley replacement seat from the catelog that I had Harley dealer install before I took delivery. We rented a FLSTC before we bought and my wife agreed to the bike purchase if I got a better seat for her. (easy decision for me) The replacement seat is about 2 inchs wider than the stock seat.

My wife has sat on the wider ones and she doesn't like them.She has the noassatall syndrome,I have the same thing.Guess I'll get the buttons installed on the factory passenger seat from a vender at an event.

The good news is my wife also has the noassatall syndrome (plus she is only 5 ft tall and in good shape, if I may brag a little bit), but she likes the wider seat that was installed.

At last years Winter bike show, she sat on a Ultra Classic and commented this should be the next bike. I'm not ready to give up the FLSTC style for the complete road sofa just yet! (no offense to the owners of Ultra Classic intended - I just like the FLSTC looks, handling, ride alot!) In three summers -short summers - 5 months of good riding, I have 16,500 miles - not a ton of riding, but enough for GREAT enjoyment!

I wanted an Ultra for us to cruise on.We tested a few and she said she didn't like it.When we got up on a Heritage,before I even cranked the engine she said this is the one,so I got a spanking new one.I really like the bike and it's old classic styling.It has close to 20k on it,almost all miles are with us together,I have been averaging 25k a year on all of the bikes.This bike has really brought us closer to each other.It's pretty cool to watch her face in the mirrors as we cruise.She looks so content and that makes me happy.

I'm jealous of the warm weather which increases opportunities to ride. Have a enjoyable time riding this winter - The cover is on my bike for the year (darn)

Took an early ride thismorn,there was a little fog out and chilly.I got clothed up and took the Heritage because I can haul spare trans parts in the bags.There wasn't much traffic,the sun came up and burned the fog away.I felt so good and free cruising down the highway I didn't want to stop.I love taking off from a light,rolling on the throttle and then slowly shifting the next gear,it's loud and sounds like music,lobbing it into high gear and let the torque sing.I hope everyone that enjoys a good sounding engine was listening.I got home,cleaned up,swapped bikes and went cruising w some buddys for the rest of the day.

Took the cover off the bike on Sunday (03-25-07)

After checking fluids, tire pressure, etc, spent the next 2 1/2 hours on the bike. Where did I go - anywhere and everywhere my mind told me to - about 125 miles. Freedom for the soul!

When I got back, the wife said I couldn't stop talking/smiling and had an attitude adjustment from the ride (she was laughing when she said it, as she wanted to ride, but had another committment)

Woooo hooooo for Spring in Ohio.

What a GREAT sound - the Harley sound!

Harley Guy, Your post reminds me of the saying "One will never find a motorcycle parked at the psychiatrist's office!"

Good one -

I'm going to use this one several times in the future!

Got out for a short ride after work last night - only 50 miles, but with a smile!

Thanks

Hello All...Chrome sides on 6 Gallon Tank?

I have a 1993 Heritage which has chrome on either side and is a 6 gallon tank. I have looked through the internet to find some discussion regarding this and there is little info. I am trying to find out if this was genuine Harley tank (it appears so)..was this a limited thing and was it ever put on other models. As I said I have not been able to get any info.

Thanks

Wayne
