A motorcycle is more than a way to get from place to place. Riding is a lifestyle, and maintaining your bike is part of the package. Here are a few essential motorcycle maintenance tips to keep your Harley-Davidson out on the open road.
Stick to a Schedule
One of the most important aspects of maintaining your Harley-Davidson is making sure you inspect it regularly. Certain parts of the bike need to be looked at more frequently than others, so keep track of when you perform your maintenance. Whereas your fork oil, air filter, and spark plugs only need to be changed once or twice per year, you should be checking your brake lines and engine oil every 3 months. Any time you hop on your Harley-Davidson, make sure your lights, indicators, tires, and brakes are all in working order. You may have to inspect all of these aspects sooner depending on your weather and environment.
Talk to the Right Professionals
If you are having problems with your bike, take it to a professional who specializes in your exact type of bike. For example, take your Harley-Davidson to a qualified Harley-Davidson technician with a proven background. This is the only way to ensure that your bike will be taken care of in exactly the way it requires. Your technician should be knowledgeable and experienced and know just how to diagnose and treat your problem.
Purchase Quality Parts
Different bikes need different parts in order to function optimally. Consult your manufacturer to find out what the best types of parts are for your bike. This is typically identified by the brand; Harley-Davidson parts are designed for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Do not buy cheaper parts or badly worn parts because they can cause your bike to malfunction which can result in much more expensive repairs.

There is nothing quite like riding down miles of open highway while listening to the classic rock of 60s and 70s rebels. Unfortunately, not every bike comes equipped with a sound system that has louder pipes than your motorcycle; that’s where the Boom! Audio System comes in. Take a look at why you should add this system to your Harley-Davidson.
The Boom! Audio Speakers will make sure that you get your music fix while you get your riding fix. The front speakers are designed to project your music loudly and crisply without sacrificing any mid frequencies or low end. Metal grills protect the speakers from inclement weather as well as the vibrations from your Harley-Davidson. The two front speakers are packaged with the protective metal grills, electronic crossovers, and plug-in wiring connection, complete with a two-year warranty.
If you are into the surround sound experience, you will want to supplement your front speakers with Boom! Audio Fairing Lower Speakers. Offering many decibels of extra volume and a minimal amount of extra weight on your Harley, these lower speakers can reduce distortion and allow you to get an incredibly clear sound at highway speeds. They also provide a little extra kick for those times when you feel like boosting up the bass. These speakers also come with a two-year warranty as well as installation hardware, a ported lower tray, and protective speaker grills.
Some riders need their rebel yell to be louder than any other. If this describes you, look into the Boom! Audio Rear Speaker Kit. With all of these pieces in place, you will turn your Harley-Davidson into your own audio haven. This kit comes with rear speakers and pods as well as passenger controls and a two-year warranty.
For more information about the brand new Boom! Audio System, call Harley-Davidson of Ocean County at (732) 719-3196. We are New Jersey’s home for all things Harley-Davidson. If you would like to learn more about our new and used bikes and parts, feel free to visit our website today.

Riding as a group gives you the chance to share the joys and the challenges of the ride with a select few. Get the most out of your ride by planning the route so that it is at a comfortable pace for everybody. If there are wide gaps in riding experience, you may want to have several packs within your group, or find the right number of stops to make so that everyone is happy. To ensure good communication on the road, make sure that everyone has a two-way radio and is aware of the hand signals. For safety, everyone should keep a two-second cushion behind the rider in front of him.
For more tips on getting the most out of your Harley-Davidson rides, contact Harley Davidson of Ocean County, or drop by our Harley-Davidson dealer today.

With timeless style, a powerful engine, and a smooth-shifting transmission, the 2014 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic is a new Harley-Davidson that’s worth a closer look. Delivering both comfort and sport, the Heritage Softail Classic is great for trips of any length. Learn more about the key features of the 2014 Heritage Softail Classic in the following article.
Hidden Rear Shocks
The 2014 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic looks like it has a rigid suspension that’s typically found on classic cruisers. But upon closer inspection, you’ll see that the Heritage Softail actually has hidden rear shocks. This gives the Heritage Softail the advantage of looking vintage, while riding smooth and comfortable like the brand-new bike that it is.
Designed to look like a classic boulevard cruiser, the Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic features whitewalls, laced wheels, and studded leather saddlebags. Its full fenders with chrome headlights, retro tank with 3-D Harley-Davidson medallion, tank-mounted console, and menacing seven-inch chrome ball headlamp are hallmarks of classic Harley-design.
Twin-Cam 103 Engine
With high torque output thanks to its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection, the air-cooled Twin Cam 103 Engine delivers a strong throttle response in any driving scenario. Bolted to the Six-Speed Cruise Drive transmission, the Twin-Cam 103 enjoys reduced engine speed, which results in a smoother ride, less engine vibration, and enhanced highway fuel economy.
The wheels underneath the 2014 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic are wrapped in high-quality Dunlop tires. Designed to instill confidence, the Heritage Softail Classic’s Dunlop tires deliver excellent grip in wet or dry weather.
Full-Length, Adjustable Footboards
If you’re planning a bike tour this summer, the Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic is ideal. Its full-length footboards can be adjusted to a wide range of foot positions in order to improve comfort for the long haul.
