I have seen a few of these bikes in person and they are awesome. They also do the same for police officers. All great looking and awesome bikes..Thanks Harley for taking care of us that are serving or have served as Fire Fighters & Police Officers.

Hi Baron,

I like the red one, it has such good preportions, I've never seen any Harleys untill we went to France a few weeks ago, every third bike on the road was a HD it seemed, and was my first chance to see them in the flesh.

Beautiful bikes,
Wish I could buy them all lol

Baron, you da man! Thanks for featuring the Heritage Softail Classic. It's a beautiful bike. If I had the cash, this could be the one. But the Road King is still up there, and I really like the Dyna Low since your feature on that bike. Well, you just made my decision harder!
