2002 HD Heritage Softail

by Debra Cash
(Fredericksburg, VA)

This is my third NEW Harley. It was originally blue and silver. When I ordered it, purple was not an available color. So, it took me 10 years, but I finally got her painted and all decked out the way I wanted. I love to ride and am a member of the Motor Maids for 8+ years. I have 35K miles on this bike. My friends call me the Purple Goddess so I have renamed my bike to Peggy (PG). We have been to the tip of Maine and as far West as Wyoming. My dream is to ride to the Floriday Keys. Our next big ride will be Texas in 2014. Until then, it's short hops and as many miles as we can do in a weekend ;) I love to ride and since redoing Peggy, she is so comfy I feel like I can ride forever. Last May, 6 of us rode from Virginia to Iowa in 2 days, spent 2 days there and rode 2 days home! I loved every minute of it, rain, fog, heat and cold, nothing was dampering my ride!! My Mother rode when I was very young, she liked hummingbirds and the color purple too, so I had the Derby cover engraved with a hummingbird "angel" in her memory and also a hummingbird painted on the back of the front fender. That way, she is always riding with me.

'02 Heritage Softail NEW

I also own a 2002 Heritage Softail, it's my 1st bike, and I love her.
I named her "Clementine". She's a dream. She has the best Center of Gravity, and so comfortable to drive.
1450 CC's just flows thru my blood. I think it's the best CHIC bike you can ride.

keep it in the wind !!!!!!

long riding

I loved your story. My Mom also rode when I was young, along with my Dad. I started sitting on bikes at a very young age & fell in love with riding.

Living in Florida gives me the opportunity of riding year round. But it's mostly around our very large State. I have several long rides on my bucket list.

You purple bike is a special tribute to your Mother.
