    Getting to Know the 2014 Iron 883 by Harley-Davidson

    Last updated 2 months ago

    If you’re looking for an aggressive throwback to the Harley-Davidson motorcycles of the past, allow us to introduce the 2014 Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883. This blacked-out bruiser is styled to achieve the slimmer, sportier look of classic Harley-Davidson motorcycles, but it comes with all of the performance and handling upgrades of a 21st century hog. Before you take this throwback classic for a test drive at your local Harley-Davidson dealership, here is a closer look at some of our favorite features of the new Iron 883.

    Classic Styling

    The 2014 Harley-Davidson Iron 883 is one of the slimmest, sportiest bikes in the 2014 lineup. Up front, the new Iron 883 features a modern take on the classic 3.3 gallon tapered peanut fuel tank, a defining feature of Harley-Davidson Sportster models for decades. The new Iron 883 also features a side-mounted license plate, which leaves the rear fender surfaces smooth and uncluttered for clean, fast lines throughout the bike.

    Advanced Engine

    The 2014 Iron 883 may look like a classic, but it performs like something out of the future. The new air-cooled 883cc Evolution® engine is one of the most advanced powerplants ever thrown onto a Sportster motorcycle. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency. The Evolution engine is also incredibly durable, a nod to the unwavering performance that has defined Harley-Davidson motorcycles from the start.  

    Ergonomic Design

    When you ride the new Iron 883, you’ll look good going down the road and you’ll feel comfortable doing it. For starters, the lowered front and rear suspension and narrow solo seat provide comfort and confidence for riders of all sizes and experience. The mid-mounted controls also let your boots fall where they may naturally.

    Adding a Motorcycle Endorsement to Your Driver's License

    Last updated 2 months ago

    If you are ready to get behind the handlebars of the new Harley-Davidson motorcycle you’ve dreamed about in NJ, you must first obtain a motorcycle endorsement to ensure you are a legal rider. The process of obtaining a motorcycle endorsement also ensures that you are competent and safe at riding a motorcycle. If you already have a driver’s license, here’s how you can add a motorcycle endorsement and enjoy the open road from the comfortable seat of a Harley.  

    Enroll in a Basic Rider Course

    The Motorcycle Safety Education Program Basic Rider Course is required if you are under 18 years old and want to obtain a motorcycle endorsement. But even if you are not 18 years of age, taking the course makes obtaining your motorcycle endorsement easier. Not only that, but it gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you are a safe and confident motorcyclist.

    Apply for a Permit

    Applying for a permit is necessary regardless of whether or not you’ve completed the Basic Rider Course. To get a permit, you must be at least 17 years of age. You must also pass a knowledge test covering the material found in New Jersey’s Driver and Motorcycle Manuals.

    Using Your Motorcycle Permit

    While holding a permit, you are not allowed to operate your motorcycle 30 minutes after sunset or 30 minutes before sunrise. Furthermore, you are not allowed to carry any passengers, and you cannot ride on a limited-access highway or a state toll road.

    Take the Motorcycle Road Test

    If you did not take the Basic Rider Course, you must practice ride with your permit for 20 days, and then take a road test. To take the road test you must be at least 18 years old, and you must bring your own motorcycle, eye protection, and helmet.

    To find out more about how to obtain a motorcycle endorsement, visit the State of New Jersey’s Motorcycle Vehicle Commission’s website. And if you are ready to test-drive a new or used Harley-Davidson, come to Harley-Davidson of Ocean County, NJ.

    What is Project RUSHMORE?

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Harley-Davidson is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, but that’s not even the really big news from America’s favorite motorcycle company. The 2014 Harley-Davidson lineup has been announced, and eight new bikes benefit from a new company-wide design scheme named “Project RUSHMORE.” As the largest scale new model launch in Harley-Davidson’s long and illustrious history, Project RUSHMORE encompasses eight new motorcycles that completely redefine and fundamentally transform the motorcyclist’s experience. Here is a closer look at some of the innovative new features of Harley-Davidson’s Project RUSHMORE motorcycles.

    State-of-the-Art Infotainment System

    Wouldn’t it be cool if you could play your favorite song just by telling your motorcycle to play it? What about being able to take or end a call with a simple voice command? Thanks to Project RUSHMORE, you can do both. Featuring the first and only fully integrated voice recognition and touchscreen infotainment system in motorcycling, Project RUSHMORE bikes set the new standard for touring motorcycles.

    Unparalleled Comfort and Driving Feel

    Whether you are driving across town or across the country, Project RUSHMORE bikes will keep you comfortable, longer. After thousands of hours spent in the wind tunnel and countless hours more spent in the rear world, Harley-Davidson developed the new Splitstream vent, which equalizes airflow to reduce head buffeting by 20 percent. Select Project RUSHMORE models also feature a wider and deeper passenger area, including new ergonomic back and arm rests and extra leg room.  

    Next-Generation Harley-Davidson Powerplant

    The crowning achievement of Project RUSHMORE is the new Twin Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine. The long-rumored liquid cooled Harley-Davidson engine is finally implemented in a production motorcycle, and from the smiles on the faces of early test riders, there’s never been an engine that feels quite this good.

    Bike Profile: The 1986 Harley-Davidson Softail Custom

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Harley-Davidson motorcycles may be some of the most instantly recognizable bikes in the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few (more than a few, in fact) that stand out from the rest. One such bike is the 1986 FXSTC Softail Custom known as the “Harley Fox.” From the twisted front spokes in the front to a custom engraved fox head on the clutch cover, this one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson motorcycle is the essence of rider customization. The Harley Fox was so unique, in fact, that the Harley-Davidson Museum took permanent ownership of the bike in 2012.

    You can’t find anything like the Harley Fox at Harley-Davidson of Ocean County, but our staff can help you customize your new bike to make it stand out from other motorcycles on the road.

    4 Tips for Customizing your Harley-Davidson

    Last updated 3 months ago

    For 110 years, Harley-Davidson has allowed daring men and women to express their originality. But if you want your bike to stand out from other Harley-Davidson models on the road, make it your own. Harley-Davidson offers dozens of bike products and accessories to help you personalize your motorcycle. Whether you are shopping for a new motorcycle or looking to upgrade your current ride, here are a few tips for customizing your Harley-Davidson.

    Add Custom Handlebars

    Not only will new handlebars make your Harley-Davidson stand out, but they will also ensure that you have the ideal riding position for maximum comfort. Harley-Davidson offers handlebars ranging in size and style from low-profile drag handlebars to high-hanging “ape hangers” and tallboy bars.

    Make it More Functional

    A personalized Harley-Davidson should make a statement, but it should also be more functional and practical. Fortunately, Harley-Davidson offers numerous products that can help you achieve this level of personalization. Storage racks, backrests, and windshields are just a few of the add-ons that can give your Harley-Davidson the functional touch that other bikes are lacking.

    Get a Custom Paint Job

    No matter what kind of rider you are, you can get a custom paint job to make your Harley-Davidson an extension of your personality. From color-matched components to limited-edition paint schemes, the Harley-Davidson Color Shop can give your bike a personal touch to help it stand out from other motorcycles on the road.

    Upgrade the Performance

    When talking about a custom motorcycle, you can’t forget to mention torque, horsepower, brute force, and speed. Again, no matter what kind of rider you are, Harley-Davidson’s Screamin’ Eagle® Performance Parts can give your bike the custom performance you crave.

    Whether you already own a Harley-Davidson or are looking to buy your first bike, Harley-Davidson of Orange County can help you customize your ride.
