Meet the riders behind BDCW products

Kurt-04Kurt and Martha Forgét (like “For-jay”) created Black Dog Cycle Works to feed their love of adventure riding. It’s this deep-seated passion that drives them to design and manufacture products of unparalleled ruggedness—including the absolute toughest skid plate armor on the planet.

With over 14 years of adventure riding and constant product development, Kurt and Martha have learned what works best, what will last, what will protect your bike—and most importantly, what will help get you home. They tirelessly punish their own machines—having broken, bent or destroyed more than their share of parts in their ongoing quest for perfection.

Martha-04While producing the industry‘s toughest skid plates is their core competency, they also offer a full line of top quality accessories including LED/HID lighting, platform-style footpegs, performance, luggage systems, maintenance, recovery, and travel gear—all of which have been personally performance tested by Kurt and Martha.

Based in beautiful and mountainous Sandpoint, Idaho, the Forgéts live in the ideal proving ground for the equipment they design, as well as other gear BDCW offers. Black Dog Cycle Works’ products are used and abused WORLDWIDE by many of the top names in our industry. It’s the combined feedback from them, and riders like you, that provide the basis for BDCW’s legendary customer service. So, if you need advice... or to discuss upgrades... please call—they’re here to help!

A personal note from Kurt & Martha: “Living in a small American town, we’ve come to know some of the most amazingly talented people. As a result, we made the solid business decision to build our company around these stellar craftsmen and craftswomen who care so much about their work, and continually wow our customers with superior workmanship. That’s why all of BDCW’s own products, and many that we distribute, are so proudly made in the U.S.A.”

All of BDCW’s own products, and many that we distribute, are proudly MADE in the U.S.A.
