 Big Dog Motorcycles 2009 First Ride

The 2009 Big Dog Bulldog is the company's first bagger. Big Dog Motorcycles celebrates 15 years in the biz by producing its 25,000th motorcycle and by releasing its largest lineup to date, including the X-Wedge-powered 2009 Wolf. The front wheel on the Wolf is about as big as they come at 23-inches tall. It will come with a fiberglass front fairing and windscreen to go along with its hard saddlebagsI learn the Wolf is the second generation of the thinking process that brought us the 2008 Pitbull, Big Dog Motorcycles 2009 First Ride which bodes well for the Wolf since the Pitbull was voted 2008 V-Twin Bike of the Year by Easyriders’ parent company, Paisano Publications. The immediate similarities are in the lines of the tank design and in the flow of the bikes. But where the sweep of the Pitbull is broken by its dual-spring seat, the Wolf keeps going as the 4.5-gallon tank, seat pan and steel rear fender run together seamlessly the length of the bike. And with a stance that’s 9.5-ft long, your lines had better be sharp and refined. Long and low with killer paint, tons of chrome, a monster V-Twin and better-than-expected handling - yes, indeed, the 2009 Wolf is one formidable pro-streeter.The Coyote is the lightest, most agile of the 2009 Big Dog lineup and gets the most out of its 117 c.i. S&S engine.  Big Dog Motorcycles 2009 First Ride
The front wheel on the Wolf is about as big as they come at 23-inches tall. The Wolf attains its enviable attributes by virtue of a seven-inch stretch to the backbone, a backbone that’s claimed to be so over-built, so heavy duty that there’s no torsional twisting. The front end has a three-inch stretch on the fork, which is exaggerated by the motorcycle’s 45-degree rake - a combination of 40-degrees in the frame rake plus five-degrees in the triple trees. The seat sits almost even with the gargantuan 23-inch front wheel. I sit low and upright on the motorcycle, making it a straight reach to the 1.25-inch rubber-mounted pull-back handlebars. Tall tires front and back make sure that the bike is proportional. The front wheel is about as big as you can get and still be functional. The rear is no slouch itself at 20-inches tall, and the 220mm width is enough to provide
Long and low with killer paint, tons of chrome, a monster V-Twin and better-than-expected handling - yes, indeed, the 2009 Wolf is one formidable pro-streeter. the custom look that buyers require without totally sacrificing handling. The machined aluminum wheels give it a true custom look. They look so good that Big Dog went to the trouble of placing the rear brake caliper and rotor behind the drive to provide an uncluttered view of the chrome design. A single left-side disc on the front puts the lead wheel prominently on display as well. And sitting in the middle of the 83.5-inch wheelbase is the heart of the 2009 Wolf, S&S Cycle’s 121 cubic-inch X-Wedge engine. What’s the big deal about the X-Wedge, you say? The air-cooled, pushrod V-Twin is the first 49-state certified lump that meets the 2010 US Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier II standards. According to S&S, the belt-driven, three-cam design has its valve train geometry aligned for maximum efficiency and minimal
The 121 cubic-inch X-Wedge is a tri-cam, square-bored V-Twin that provides a heart-pounding 1976cc of power.noise. This adds up to a claimed 21% reduction in vibrations, 22% more fin area, and a 30% reduction in parts.
