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.

A summer bike tour is the perfect opportunity to experience the true potential of your new Harley-Davidson motorcycle. But before you set off, remember that a little bit of preparation can go a long way. Here are some tips that will help you make the most out of your summer bike tour.
Avoid Rush Hour
The goal on a summer bike tour is to enjoy the open road—just you, your Harley-Davidson, and maybe a lucky passenger. Rush hour can put a damper on your summer bike tour, so avoid it by getting an early start. Restaurants are usually busiest at 8 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m., so we recommend that you avoid eating at a restaurant at these times. If you’re in a larger urban area, find a hotel on the edge of the city so you can avoid urban traffic when you leave the next morning.
Always Have a Backup Option
You should always have a spare key on you in the event that the other one gets lost. If you have a travel buddy, consider giving the key to him or her to minimize chances of both keys getting lost simultaneously. Even if you have waterproof saddlebags, it’s best to wrap your belongings in trash bags for an extra layer of water protection. And even if you use a navigation device, take a map wrapped in a waterproof container just in case something happens to your electronics.
If you are riding through an arid climate on your Harley-Davidson, carry a sports hydration backpack that lets you drink while you ride. Use eye drops a couple of times a day and always wear goggles or sunglasses to reduce your chances of having eye irritation. We also recommend wearing earplugs to reduce wind noise.

With excellent fuel economy, heart-racing performance, and head-turning style, motorcycles are perfectly suited for cross-country tours. But before you hit the wide open road, make sure your bike is stocked up and ready for the adventure ahead. A simple flat tire repair kit can be incredible useful on a long motorcycle tour. The farther you plan to travel, the wider the range of weather condition you may encounter, so be sure to carry versatile pieces of clothing that can keep you dry and comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. A good old fashioned road map can also come in handy if you are lost and don’t have service on your cell phone or GPS device.

Summer is here, and that means it’s time to rinse off your bike and hit the open road. But while you certainly want your Harley-Davidson to look great this summer, you probably want it to perform great, too. Riding in the heat of the day can take its toll on your bike, especially if you’ve been neglected routine motorcycle maintenance up to this point. To make sure that your bike gets you to all of your summer destinations and back, here are some tips for getting it ready for warm weather riding.
Check the Oil
In order for your motorcycle to operate properly this summer, it is important that you maintain your bike’s engine oil. Run your motorcycle for a few minutes, then kill the engine and wait for the oil to settle. If the oil is low, add manufacturer recommended engine oil. And if the oil looks old or dirty, bring it to your Harley-Davidson dealer for an oil change.
Inspect the Tires
Before you hit the open, check your bike’s tires for cracks, wear, and damage. If you notice that your tires are cracking, bulging, or that the tread is worn down, consider replacing the tires before you embark on a long-distance trek. Also be sure to check the air pressure in each tire at least once a week.
Test the Lights
Turn your bike on and check all of the lights before you hit the road this summer. It’s already hard as it is for drivers to see motorcycle riders, so test the lights and make sure you are as visible as possible when riding at night. If any of the bulbs are burned out, replace them before you do any nighttime riding.
