I am more than happy with my trouble free Mastiff. Now about the Pitbull. When I saw the first Pic, I thought, well they fucked this up. All the pics posted still did nothing for me. Gotta say though, up close and personal, I think they have a winner. It is a well thought out scoot. AND, they were fwd thinking enough to know they have to stay ahead of the rest with innovations. If it handles well, then we all win as the company will prosper and always be there for us. If they wait to see where the herd of other builders are going, they will be 2 years behind, and losing. BDM is trying to put a bike out there that appeals to all of us. Mutt: Most of us think it is cute, a girls bike (sotty ladies), not needed in the lineup, but BDM has to do what it can to try to pull more new buyers in. If the mutt handles as well as the company and the dlrs proclaim it does, then BDM will have another winner on the podium The Ridgeback changed to a beach ball sized rear tire, some do not like that, hell, some hate it, but it will sell as it will be very appealing to some of us. The beloved chopper is gone this year, but we all know BDM will not let the name die away and they will make changes that some will despise and others will say, I like that better than my '05 choppa. Hey! It MAY happen. K-9 is due for some subtle changes, time will tell. Point is, these bikes will change and they have to if this company wants to stay in the forefront of Custom Production bikes. Me? I want 1 of each.
