Thx.  It's a BDM (Big Dog Motorcycles) K-9.  117 S&S motor and it's got a lot of low-end torque to it.  Here's the neat part.......it's a 2006 model year, and I found it 2 years ago (2021) sitting in a guy's office up in Ohio.  It had 47 miles (documented) on it.  I was never ridden and was basically an office ornament.  I searched high and low across the country for the best one I could find, and this was it.  I haven't ridden it much myself either so now it's got 250 miles on it.  It's a real fun machine to ride, but certainly not a "Cadillac" type of ride.  It takes a little work compared to a H-D Dyna.

Just saw this section of the forum. I am into older bikes, shovels are my favorite. I've had a handful and rebuilt quite a few for friends getting them back on the road. Anyone with questions about shovels ask away, I can send you to the right answers for sure if I don't know myself.

Right now in the garage and what I ride is a 1980 FXS Lowrider that has been upgraded to about bullet proof and what I call a 1969 resto mod. made to look like a 50's or early 60's cop bike.

Lowrider getting new paint right now, have everything mocked up, aligned, beat into shape, etc and ready to disassemble, coat the tanks and then take to painter hopefully next weekend.

There's a 2022 Street Glide in the garage, but given the weather around here lately, I've been sticking to 3 wheels!

Sold my 73' 350 just before Christmas last year. Just over 17k miles. Getting to be too many A-hole drivers around here.

My dad bought this KZ650 new in Feb 1977.  I started riding it when I was in 8th grade, still riding it occasionally.

Haven't been on the forum in a bit, here's the red Lowrider from above in it's new paint. The painter did a good job - hand painted the striping and the logo, no decals used.

The new livery looks fantastic.

No kidding? That is some really great work on the striping & logo. That bike looks much better black. cool

Now about those mirrors...can you see anything behind you as you sit idling at a stoplight? Enquiring minds... poke big-grin
