    As a vet I want to display a small American flag on my Heritage. I just got my vet plate so I thought a flag would be a nice addition. A riding friend said I need to be carefull that I may make a few mad if I display it wrong. Is there a right and wrong way to display a flag on my bike? Also where did you get yours if you ride with one?

    HD sells one that works real good. I have one on my 09 Heritage and I think it looks good.

    DO NOT buy the american flag from HD that will clip on the hard saddle bags !!! The clip scrathes up the paint & the flag only last for about a 1/2 hour of riding then it is falling apart & is so frayed it has to be removed & properly distroyed . Also the flags you buy from HD are made in CHINA . The American Flag should be @ center or right of center on your bike

    I don't know if you're riding an Ultra Classic or not, but if you are, J&P makes a kit for mounting a small flag on our antennas. I have a U.S. Flag on the right one, and a POW-MIA one on the other. It just so happens that since the right antenna has a base load in it the U.S. Flag rides about an inch higher than the POW-MIA one. The flags are fairly well made and last a fair amount of time. I want to get a "Don't Tread on Me" one next to display above the POW-MIA Flag, or replace it.
