Pig Slobs are great

Well, if I was just any ol' fat slob looking for an excuse to be a lamed hard ass, I would piss away my parent's hard-earned 'I died so here's what I'm giving you' money on the same Harley everyone else has. However, If I wanted to drown myself in even more empty debt (Kid's college fund? College is for LOSERS!) I would buy a Big Dog! Yeah! That way, when other pathetic weekend warriors see my child-like chromed big wheel, they'll wave a special wave. Maybe when I'm in the 7-11, people will stop and ask me questions about it... because I need that level of attention and self satisfaction.

Big Dog? No, my friend... Big Slob.

What do you guys think of these bikes?
I do not think you may get a fair answer on this Sportbike board.

I happen to think Big Dogs are good bikes.

I would get one 1 to 2 years old as they take a big drop right away in value.

I ride a Bourget bike as well as a ZX10-R

It is great to have such a broad spectrum of bikes covered in my garage.

why did this post get flamed by rumpy?/?/?

and ps. i dont think you will get a fair opinion from all the guys that ride honda's and think they are only as cool as how many bikes they have trashed tryin to do wheelies...

bikes are bikes, you can bitch and moan about what bikes are the best, but it all comes down to havin fun on 2 wheels

Dan's comments seem in very poor taste. I guess that reflects his taste in bikes? Certainly says he lacks the character to tolerate other tastes in motorcycles.

Anyway, the Big Dog is a spendy toy that rides hard as a rock. If you don't care about how it rides and can tolerate riding something akin to Fred Flinstone's car, go buy one. But for a lot less you can buy a Harley Softtail Deuce, which is a factory custom that rides decent and you can actually get parts and service with a smile. And it is a beautiful bike. No, it does not have the horsepower of a Big Dog, but honestly, if horsepower is what you want then why not buy something with a proprietary engine that has power: Kawasaki Vulcan 2000. No S&S motor can compete with it. Or get the Screaming Eagle motor kit for the Deuce for about three grand.

Big Dog Bikes

I happen to own a 2004 Big Dog Boxer myself and I think that they kick a$$!!! I also ride a 2004 harley heritage softail and am currently building an '05 Eddie Trotta Thunder Bike (Drop dead); or shall I say having one built for me. But to answer your question: I love big dogs and would not take any other cruiser over them but as someone previously mentioned " its all about having fun on 2 wheels." To me there is just no other cruiser (Honda, yamaha, kawasaki, suzuki, and etc...) that can touch a Big Dog when it comes to looks, and power!!!! That Definately includes Harley Davidsons! Like I said I ride both and my Heritage feels like a tricycle compared to the Big Dog (although most bikes will be more comfortable and handle better than a Big Dog). I do suggest getting the 107 ci S&S over the 107 ci TP for long term durability purposes. I hope to have all my bike pics. posted before long. Later!!!

We have worked on a number of Big Dogs at my shop and they're as good as any and better than most of the Harley / Chopper stuff. If you want to ride a motorcycle, actually ride somewhere, enjoy the mountain roads, or simply enjoy years of trouble-free riding you've selected the wrong machine. These are maintenance monsters and money magnets. Very few owners even bother attempting to convert their bike into a real motorcycle, so they just keep on adding even more non-functional goodies like a wider rear wheel, or anything that promises to get more attention from the non-motorcycling crowd. If you want to ride in a parade, you can't find a better machine.
