My ride is an '06 Mastiff. Currently have just over 5000 miles on it. Only mods are the BR pipes and the subsequent jetting change. Other mods this winter will be a differant air filter setup. This machine is so freakin reliable I just want to ride it all the time. And yes, at times it is rode hard, in all weather conditions, yet these bikes are desinged to be ridden. Water and road grime is no problem for my dog. Thomas, our local Steel Dreams expert wrench found the handlebars had bad bushings and promptly fixed this non problem. Yes, my speedo jumps around a bit and fogs up everywhere we go, but, I really only look at the odometer to remind me to fill up, so for me, this is also a non issue. The reliability of these bikes let us ride to events do the things we want to do with our Bros. Who else has had an absolutly positive experience with their Big Dog?
