As earlier stated I would like to have a Heritage Softail to scoot around on, but I would never give up my wing to get it. So unless I come into some extra money I will probably never get one.

My son just got a Heritagel and maybe I'll get chance to drive it soon. It's kinda weird that it is what it got considering I never told him I had been looking at them for a couple years.

Well lets see, I would have to say sure. As long as I can make it a trike. They even sell a tike now, I believe it is a Harley/Lehman Trike. I would love to have one. Can't afford one right now, but perhaps someday I will have both.

I don't really know...

I did own a 95 sportster 1200, I put 22,000 on it and sold it. At that time, it was the right bike for me.



I figure I'll upgrade in a few years, and I'll test ride the ultra glide, Victory vision, a LT BMW, and a gl1800. whatever fits what my riding style is at the time, I'll buy.

Regardless, Imay end up keeping my 1200, as the reason I'm waiting to upgrade is that we are building a house...with a garage, and garages are built to be filled. :)

As it says in my signature, my wife has a Harley and I have the wing. She often lets me ride hers though. But I mostly ride my wing. Not that her Harley is a bad ride, in fact it will easily walk away from my 25 year old wing. I just prefer the wing.

I grew up on Harleys. My Dad had several. I like them but won't buy one because I can buy bikes just as good at a third to half the price. The bike I have now fits me perfectly and I haven't found a Harley yet that is as comfortable and has the lean angle my bike has. I can't afford more than one bike so I ride the one that gives me the most for the money I have to spend. Don't get me wrong, I have a very warm spot in my heart for Harleys, my dad's passion for riding his Harleys flows thru my veins!

A few years back I had the chance to buy a sweet Harley for 10,000. It had some nice extra's, screaming eagle parts in the engine etc. Wish I had bought it but at the time I was taking flying lessons and money was scarce. I now have my 93 Aspy and LOVE it, wouldn't swap for nothing but would still like to own a Harley before I croak........

Don't own a Harley....never have. Would I buy one? Maybe if I had the money and the price was right.

On another note, I would just as soon have a big Kawasaki V twin or a big Honda V twin AND would give up my Wing for one!
Blasphemy!!!

If the opportunity arose to get a HD for the right price and at the right time I would probably buy one. As you can see I already have gone Barvarian in addition to the Wings

As much as I love my OldWing, my dream bike has been a Harley for as long as I can remember. Missed an opportunity a few years back when a Shriner family member was upgrading his old HOG and was selling for a FANTASTIC price. Just didn't have the money. Having said that, I WOULD NOT HAVE A HARLEY PARADE BIKE instead of my Wing, but I would love to have one in addition to the wing. Given an option for the big dresser, or Heritage, it would be a tough decision, just because of the years of desire.

Having said all that, owning more than one bike at a time is not likely in my future (unless that powerball ticket comes through **crossing fingers ;)**). If it were I would have an entire garage full, everything from a 1800 Wing, 1000 Naked Wing, Heritage HD, Custom Parade Chopper, Bobber, BMW Dual Sport, ST1300, Ducati Monster, and either R-6 or Huyabusa(sp?). But you should see the list of convertibles my wife would have before that would be allowed to happen :)

No, not my life style. No tattoos, chains/jewelery, no man purse and I don't wear loafers without socks. I'm more into naked bikes, dirt bikes and hot rods.

I road an '88Softail Heritage for many years and loved it. Lots of great times, rallies, trips with friends, rode to the 50th Sturgis Rally with over 700 riders from Milwaukee, with Willie G. leading the pack. Met my wife while out on the Heritage. Got married at the Grand Canyon while ona trip on the Heritage.Met a lot of great people ona lot of great rides.

I still own a 2000 Wide Glide. However; since I bought the Wing, it's for sale as I'm not in for maintaining two bikes. The Glide is a nice town bike or short trip ride. It's tastefully customized. Did I mention it was for sale?



I'll always love Harley's and admire them, but the Wing wins in the touring comfort & performance category - so that's why I now ride the Wing.
