This bike can be ridden by anyone it sits very low handling is like it's on a rail, the power is amazing reliability never an issue getting on and going out for a short ride or day run. Powerful, good-looking, fast, low maintenance related services less than any Harley I own. I'd buy one in a second if I was looking for another just like this one.

This bike is designed in the vein of old style choppers and probably isn't intended for the new flashy Chopper set. That said, it's beautiful and looks like something from WW2 on super soldier serum or steroids. The design cues are subtle and potent. Every old grissled guy to the pretty girl down the street has complimented my bike - even the cops love this ride. It rides like and sounds old school muscle car and turns incredibly well. It's built for taller folks like me who appreciate foot-pegs that need a little reach. Obviously, the giant rear tire gives it a kick off the line and even makes the rigid frame a little less rigid. The 88 cubic inch revtech puts out plenty of power and the bike weighs practically nothing compared to cruisers in the same engine size. A word to riders who want a passive, relaxed ride - this is not the bike for you. Please go buy a nice Japanese cruiser that rides like a caddy and looks like an H-D. Mike Rouse makes bikes for people who have rode rugged bikes for years and appreciate some grit in their coffee.

'I have to say that I can't complain too much about my 918.

'I have to say that I can't complain too much about my 918. With all rigid rears you will have some problems with blown lights or maybe losing hardware or in one review I read, losing the horn bracket. I actually lost my bracket. But all you need to do is check everything out before you ride. Try some locktight on the hardware. I only rode mine about 1000 miles the first month and I did have some minor problems but with each one I fixed it and was back in the wind in a matter of hours. Overall, I'm very happy with mine. And the ladies who ask me for rides make me happy too. So keep it in the wind.

I picked up my Big Daddy six weeks ago, I've ridden it about 4800 miles since then. I feel well qualified to say "shut your whining." The bike is a rocket, rides very well, and turns heads. I even carried a fine young thing to Myrtle Beach Fall Rally this past weekend on suction cup Phantom Pad thing on the fender; we had a good time, and the whole week she whined less than some of these reviewers. On the flip side, I have snapped a primary belt, and encountered some electrical disconnects and a headlight because of vibration. For my part, I totally dig the bike, love the ride, and am happy with my investment. Recommendations include go check one out and ride it, get an extended warranty, and don't be a whiner. It's a high performance machine, it pushes the edge, and that stuff's gonna happen. My friends with choppers of all other makes and varieties experience the same thing. For that matter, so do all motorcyclists that actually ride their machines. They just don't ever have nearly as much fun on theirs as I do on mine. Sorry, but it's not for sale.

This is the 15th motorcycle I have owned in 28 years and is clearly my favorite ride. I put 178 miles on it this last weekend and I loved every one of them. Took this to the ABATE of Indy class my girlfriend was taking and everyone came over to check it out (what kind of "Harley" is THAT?). This bike kicks ass and takes no prisoners and I admit it is not for everyone. Negatives - (1) better keep it on a battery tender or it will not start very easily. (2) Gas mileage, even with 93 octane, is maybe 28-30 MPG tops!!! (3) Does't go fast around corners unless you don't mind replacing expensive bits of chrome and billet. POSITIVES - (1) 100" REVTECH will eat ANY and all Harley's for lunch, I dusted some dude in a FXD with the 1550 kit from stop light to stop light and this bike is every bit as fast as my Buell S-1 in a straight line for sure. (2) Best looking bike at any bar you take it too hands down. I get more compliments on this bike from hottie chicks than you can imagine.

I have had my BMC 918 for about 2yrs and haven't had any problems so far. I have had to call BMC several times when doing a few custom changes or maintenance and they have been very helpful, even talking me through some minor things. The first thing I would do if you just get one is change out the handlebar bushings. They come with polly' which are good but the rubber ones take out MUCH more vibration. Otherwise, ride it like you stole it!
