Just sold my '06 Dyna, loved the bike but way to much vibration for me. I'm looking at an '06 Softail Deluxe that's in like new condition this week, and am wondering if the Deluxe vibrates a lot as well. I think it has the B motor which is counter balanced, but does that eliminate all vibration ? Appreciate any and all input.

About the only thing that vibrates is the bottom tip of the rear fender. Sometimes I feel a little doing 65 through the grips.
It is not bothersome. I have a 02 Heritage with carb and if it had real cruise control I would keep it forever. The seat had to go as it was a hard Esso bee.

A l'il vibration is all part of the Harley mystique LOL. My '01 Heritage had a minor "buzz" when on the slab but not enough to bother me. otoh, my rubber mount '12 FLHP has hardly any vibes at all on the highway.

If I were looking at/for another Heritage I'd want one of the latter year bikes with the 103 and 6 speed JM-2$en#e-
