Big Dog K9 Review

Big Dog K9 review

American Ironhorse Texas Chopper vs Big Dog K9 motorcycles.

My impressions from owning & riding these two fine factory built chopper motorcycles.

This is the second video in a series, comparing my impressions of owning and riding the American Ironhorse Texas Chopper & Big Dog K9 motorcycles

The Big Dog K9 is a 2009 model, and the American Ironhorse Texas Chopper is a 2006 model.

The focus of this video is a difference between the hydraulic clutch on the Texas Chopper as it compared to the mechanical clutch on the Big Dog K9.

This was the first big dog motorcycle that I owned. So, I was wondering why it had a mechanical clutch being that it was a 2009 model,, when my American Ironhorse Texas Chopper 2006 model had an hydraulic clutch. Read more »

Big Dog Motorcycles – Factory Tour

Big Dog Motorcycles

Like American Ironhorse Motorcycles in 2008, Big Dog Motorcycles went out of business in 2011. Since both manufactures used S&S engines, their bikes are still in demand. The top of the line for Big Dog Motorcycles was their K9 chopper model. The K9 Big Dog was very similar to the American Ironhorse top of the line Texas Chopper. Both the K9 & Texas Chopper represent the best factory built soft tail choppers ever!

Motorcycle History

American Motorcycle History

Motorcycles vary considerably depending on the task they are designed for, such as long distance travel, navigating congested urban traffic, cruising, sport and racing, or off-road conditions.

Motorcycles are one of the most affordable forms of motorized transport in many parts of the world and, for most of the world’s population, they are also the most common type of motor vehicle. There are around 200 million motorcycles (including mopeds, motor scooters, motorized bicycles, and other powered two and three-wheelers) in use worldwide, or about 33 motorcycles per 1000 people. This compares to around 590 million cars, or about 91 per 1000 people. Read more »


Ironhorse Texas Chopper for Sale

Ironhorse Texas Chopper for Sale 2006 Under 9,4000 miles!

MAKES FOR PERFECT BALANCE AND VERY RIDER FRIENDLY CHOPPER. THIS BIKE IS SUPER CLEAN & in 2014 won Best Custom Bike in six out of eight local car/bike shows! The down-side of this bike is that if you don’t want to draw massive attention riding or even parked . . . THIS BIKE IS NOT FOR YOU! You would be much better off with a standard, non-descript, mass-produced Harley! The brilliant blue paint and chrome make this a shining star.

Looking for that special holiday present? Why not put a Big Dog K9 under the tree this year?

Big Dog K9 motorcycle

Though, not ready for sale yet these two Big Dog motorcycle K9 models should be up for sale by mid December. the K-9 model was big dogs most popular, and I personally believe that the K-9 and the American Ironhorse Texas Chopper are the two best looking and riding, factory produced choppers ever made! Both these Big Dog K9 models are 2007 models with the S&S 117 engine, a massive 300 mm rear tire and upgraded top of the line custom exhausts!

The Big Dog K9 pictured above, just has approximately 5,406 miles, a breathtaking paint job and best of all, an adjustable air ride system for raising or lowering the rear end of the motorcycle. Read more »
