Unhappy I got hit by a dog........

Not much to the story as I only made it 4 houses down from my driveway before I met pavement.

I pulled out my driveway and saw my neighbors dog ready to chase me. As I took off I was like, I hate this dog. It took off down the sidewalk behind some cars and I slowed down waiting for it come out into the street. I didn't see it so I gave it some gas, and just as I got to about 15-20 mph here comes that dog. It runs into my front tire and winds up underneath it and not sure how but I wound up on my and next thing I know im sliding and watching my bike on its side on top of the dog sliding about 20-25 ft down the street. First im like then since I saw it squirm it self out from underneath the bike and bolt off.

I pick up my bike and it wont start and smells like glands Then I thought, the dog wont do that again.

Not sure what I could have done to either not run over the dog or avoid it but all I can do is learn from it.

I left a note on the owners door and get a call this afternoon. Of course he says its not his dog . But o well, not much damage since my bike was on top of the dog as it slide, just a scratched frame slider and left side rear tail fairing. Got the bike started and all is well. Just a bruised ego.

I believe the MSF says something to the extent of slowing down and then speeding up away from them. Not sure if that would have been useful. Maybe just stop and kick the dog in the face before proceeding?

When the control officer comes out, explain the situation and see if they can get/give confirmation of ownership.

If so... take the bill to the owner.

Agreed. The owner is legally liable for the actions of his pet. Call Animal Control, or perhaps even file a police report. That level of irresponsibility is completely unacceptable.

On my phone, so I'm not going to re-read it...

But, I believe OP slowed down due to traffic/street issues, then doggy popped out from obstacle, when he was allready back on gas.

When you get into a furball, jacking with the agressors angle of attack is best. Agressor makes an intercept line, target slows down, thus changing agressors AoA wide. Throttle up, and agressor has a much tighter intercept line to plot. Drastic AoA changes at the last second, prevent agressor from sweeping into the merge the way he wants. Target can go to W.E.P. and egress without a furball.

Whoops I thought I was in the Lo-MAC forum again . (But holds true for cycle and baddie doggie skirmishes)

the dog will project and run to an intercept point based on the speed it sees you at so you just slow down, it changes where its running, then you speed up when its closer and its stuck way behind you.

If you saw the dog, and figured it would happen, why didn't ya just stop?


Glad you're okay though, doubt the owners are gonna do anything.

So if it's not his dog, I guess he wouldn't mind you shooting the thing, right?

I tried that and needless to say there was a pug suddenly underneath my front tire. Luckily the dog was ok and ran inside his house where the owner saw everything happen. All she did was let the dog inside and closed the door as I was standing with my bike in confusion and amazement. Next time there's a dog, I'm just gonna go nice and slow.

Same thing happened to my buddy Pigpen years back and he didn't get anything from the owner.

Gas and wheelie over them is my choice if I can. I have a dog, and have zero respect for people that let theirs run loose. I have a pellet gun in the garage for those mutts that want to dig in my trash.

f you can prove who owns the dog and if there's a leash law, you can take the owner to small claims court and sue for any monetary damages that you suffered. Otherwise, wear some good motorcycle boots and kick that mother dog in the mouf
