    So, I’m not only trying to find my brother a 03 Chopper I am also looking for a new project. Would like to find a Bigdog with a 330 rear tire needing some TLC!!!

    To enjoy a Ridgeback, I hope he is in good shape physically and has a good back. I'm not sure if this would be a good ride for someone with a bad back. :chopper:

    If you ride a couple hundred miles at a time, it would be a kick in the butt. But, if you want to do 3 to 500 miles, I would want to be more comfortable. I'm not talking about myself of course. :)

    That is a lot of chrome to shine. But, everyone doesn't like the "short"pipes;)

    We liked your bag so much, we had to order our own when we returned home. Now, it's always on the Dog. :):chopper:

    Does that big tire soften the ride up any?

    Yes. I've put my hand on the fender going down the road and you can feel it going up and down but it's not going to be as good as shocks are. I also keep the recommended tire pressure of 40 psi so I don't know what it's like to run with low pressure.
