Hello! I knew when they started this was going to happen! Then the city gives them a tax break to stay! Give me a break!!!! The owner thought he was living high on the [hog] so to speak and now look at him

If you would have DOT,d the bikes in Canada, as opposed to protecting a few dealers you would still be in business. so many of us have wanted a Big Dog but the dealers were very uncooperative. Too bad. The Canadian dealers you chose were too greedy. And we have lots of money, but will not deal with pirates.

An over-rated, over-priced, Harley-Wannabe "custom" bike for losers who are trying to overcome their tinypenis anxiety.

They and all so called factory customs are only kit bikes that have been assembled for you. The items purchased from catalogues ie : frames , motors . tranny's . wheels , seats etc. Lets not forget the $ 5,000 so called custom paint jobs for about 10 sq. ft. of metal on each of these kit bikes. If you do the math , that's $ 500. a square foot !

Wouldn't mind a slightly used Bourget Fat Daddy! WAY nicer than either the Dawgs or Hardley Dangerous scoots. Love the trick frames. Great paint, BIG S&S twins, unlike the dinky, underpowered hardley mills. Up to 145" on some models! Nothing HD produces even comes close. Just sayin':)
