    Good Lord....another Big Dog bashing from Cyril Huze is on his blog right now. This guy needs to shut off his laptop and go for a ride. Ok so BDM is gone but the company is moving on with a new venture. Best of luck to Mr. Coleman and my plan is to enjoy the hell out of my K-9.

    I did some checking also. For now they are not going out of business. It's business as usual. That blog (Cyril Huze) is total bullshit. All BDM did was to furlough some more employees. But we have to realize that in these times we are living in now, where the banks aren't giving away money like candy anymore, it's hard for someone to get a bank loan to buy a new Big Dog. And how many of us can dish out the cash to buy one outright. Those that can are also leary to let the money go. So unless this economy picks up, closing will probably be inevitable. I figure I will just keep my bike in the best condition I can and have faith that if I ever need anything I will be able to find it here.

    I don't think Cyril has bashed anybody. Unless you mean the others posting on his blog, then yes. Cyril is a well respected and reputable journalist that is far deeper into the motorcycle industry then you or even I could ever dream of.


    You better get your shit straight holmes.... you are WAY WAY off base! And before you think about going after me next... you better get a reality check and look around here for a bit. I'm not the tree you want to go barking up.

    ************************ cont to a new post with new info*****************

    Confirmed again in Witchita Paper

    Big Dog Motorcycles is no more; Intrust forecloses | Wichita Eagle



    Well at least Baker is stepping up to make their parts available. This is something that many BDM owners have wished for many many many years. Hopefully something that will bring owners back in line to the "true" Baker drivetrain line.

    I was in Wichita yesterday and had to stop by Big Dog. Asked receptionist how things were goin and she said "you havent heard have ya?" She is an absolute sweetheart! She told me the news, I hadnt heard a thing about it. Been too fricken busy with work and havent been on here in awhile! Sucks bad! I was actually there to visit the starter store beside Big Dog, this guy has all of the parts to rebuild a starter minus the coil. I bought a motor and some other odds n ends to rebuild my spare.

    While in BDM, Sheldon came in from California. I chatted with him for awhile and he seems optomistic about BDM Performance. They have about 15 employee's left and they are moving straight north to a building on the north side of the service shop. I think the other buildings are goin to be sold.

    I love my Dog and am not worried about parts and such, do all my own work and rebuilt this one from a salvaged head on accident and am confident that I, with the help of the resources on this site, we can all keep each other supported.

    I wish everyone at Big Dog the best of luck and hope things work out in the future! Wouldnt hesitate buying another tomorrow if this fricken government would get straightened out!:angry::bang:

    Well I hate to hear this... I actually had to sell my Big Dog K9 back in Nov because I hadn't worked in two years... Hated to see it go!!! It wasn't really the fact of the bike payment... I had the Bike paid off but just couldn't afford to enjoy it going to Rally's and things I liked to do with it...
