October 2012

Dear Valued Customer


September was a very busy month for us and we want to give a BIG THANKS to all those customers who came out to support the KTM Adventure Rally in Bend, OR and the Adventure Rider Challenge in Moab, UT.  Both were GREAT events and we really enjoyed checking in with our customers face to face.


There are some exciting happenings during the month of October including ADVLife FREE riding clinics in the Pacific Northwest.  See below for details


As always, we strive to provide the best customer service experience in the industry as well as developing new, innovative products made in the U.S.A. 


Remember, we are a SMALL family-owned, family-operated business of passionate motorcycle enthusiasts and if you enjoy our technical expertise, EVERY sale counts for us to stay in business and we greatly appreciate your support!

Congratulations to the top finalists of the Adventure Rider Challenge / GS Trophy competition, several of which are Black Dog customers:


  • Ryan Frazier - 1st place
  • Jason Houle - 3rd place
  • Ralf Schwoerer - 5th place
  • Mike Pryor - 7th place

As always with this competition, the course was very tight and technical, with the added challenge of using an unfamiliar bike, as all contestants used the same stock F800GS.  Congratulations to all who finished.


In addition, Ryan Frazier has an opportunity to travel to South America to represent the U.S. team in the worldwide GS Trophy competition.  Kurt had a chance to hang out with Ryan during the competition and not only is he one hell of a great rider, but an awesome guy and a veteran!


The six finalist from the U.S. will be chosen based on votes on Facebook, so please vote for RYAN FRAZIER today via the following link:

As we said earlier, it was great to meet our customers at the KTM Adventure Rally and the Adventure Rider Challenge this past month.  Although we were way too busy at the KTM Event to get out for a ride, Kurt was able to get out and explore Moab,which remains one of his favorite riding areas anywhere.  If you have not been there, you owe it to yourself to make plans to go.  This area offers very unique riding opportunities and is, in our opinion, unmatched for beautiful scenery.

Another satisfied customer:


I got your voice mail and thanks so much for sending me the rack off your own bike!  You guys are great and you have made me a BDCW customer for life.  When people ask how I like the rack I will tell them it is an excellent product and the owners went out of their way to make sure I was able to go on a trip.  Thanks again!
