I'm not one to bash what other people ride, if you are on two wheels thats great. And I have ridden a ton of different bikes and they are all fun in their own way... but yesterday, I rode my dad's Big Dog K9 for the first time and you need to ride one to understand how much of a death trap they are. I know my point of view would change a little with experience on that particular bike, but from an experienced riders standpoint, those types of bikes are make for looking at and thats it. It is 10 feet long and has a 300 back tire. You can't turn at slow speeds.. U turns are terrifying. You are unstable at high speeds. I scraped the exhaust pipes on the ground while making a right turn onto an on ramp which is scary because that means the swingarm and frame werent far from the ground. I went over some uneven pavement while pulling into a parking lot and it almost ripped the handlebars out of my hands because the back tire is so wide that when one side of the wheel goes up a bump first the bike jerks to the side. Transmission was clunky. Rear brake worked better than the front. The motor is 117 cubic inches and it had a ton of power but vibrated my balls off whenever the RPM went above 2500. I would be going around a slight curve and it looked like the pegs were going to hit the ground. I'm sure I'd get better at riding it with time, but I probably wont ever ride it again. But hey, my dad likes it and his girlfriends have gotten hotter since he bought it. Anyone else ride one of these things?
