Big Dog Motorcycles

It was 1994 when the first Big Dog motorcycle rolled out of a Midwestern residential garage. The Bike, with the looks of a nostalgic cruiser, ran like a Big Dog, fast and strong. Styled like no other, it performed like no other. The Big Dog reputation grew slowly, mostly by word-of-mouth from one loyal customer to the next. Each year, sales accelerated. At first, their 100th bike seemed like a great accomplishment. A few years later, they were acstatic when they built number 1,000. Their 10,000th motorcycle left the factory in 2004 when they celebrated their 10th year anniversay. In 2005 they produced 6,000 motorcycles.

What started as one bike has grown to a five bike arsenal of radically styled models, all with big tires and big engines. And what started in one garage has grown to a twelve year old company spanning more than two city blocks. Sure, some things at Big Dog Motorcycles have changed, but the passion to build cutting-edge cruisers for real-world riding will always be at their core.
