BigDog is no more...

This is probably old news to some of you all but I just saw it today.
Too bad. I always liked the BigDogs. Thought they were pretty cool. Especially the bagger model.
RIP BigDog.

I think Big Dog couldn't adjust to the market conditions
They had a good time during the time that 280 rear tires and a long rake front end was popular. Now the trend is towards fairings and hard bags.

I've had 3 Big Dogs in the past and really enjoyed riding them. When I first heard of them going under, I bailed. The wife wasn't very comfortable riding 2 up and I was thinking of going back to a Harley bagger anyway. I need 2 bikes, one for the wife & I and one for a little me time.

Never was a fan of their work, and even less of a fan of most of their riders.

Overpriced, YES. I never thought they were ugly and the 117ci ran like a scalded dog.
