Just bought a brand new 2009 Heritage and with only 150 miles on it the rear exhaust pipe under the heat shield is blue. No just a little, a nice pretty blue the whole length that I can see. Normal or not?

unfortunately its pretty normal. With the tiny exahust valves in the TC engines, and the lean condition imposed by the fuel injection system, they just get hot. Things like a PC or one of the other injection enhancements on the market, you can fatten the mixture a bit and it will cool things a little, as will changing cams. having said that, they'll run all day at higher temps then we thought acceptable in 'da old days'.
