dog on a motorcycle

Hey guys,

TXGX1K reminded me of the question I have been wondering about. My doggie gets really sad when i go on long rides so i have been long wondering if it is possible to have some sort of bag/backpack or what else for me to transport my doggie with me when i go cruising?

TXGX1K - thanks and take care of ur sick puppy.

alex

Ride on the Tank

You gotta teach him how to ride on the tank.

There are about 5 pics of this dog riding the tank of an R1 through a curve. Push play for the slideshow.

Cool pics, but the one thing that stands out is the head to toe gear the rider is wearing, yet the four-legged best friend has nothing but a precarious perch on a tank. We don't read much about pets getting in accidents on bikes with their owners b/c there aren't that many canine co-pilots, but if you care about your guy, and you've stated he has a tendency to jump, really consider if this is the best thing to do to spend time with him.

Otherwise, if this is what you really want to do, best of luck. I'm sure there's something out there that will allow him to come along with you.

pictures needed of afore mentioned canine.

I see old dudes on HD's have a spot for their dogs, I have seen carriers on the back, I have seen small carriers on tank area, even pads for the dog to sit on. One old dude would ride with hid small dog in the front of his button up shirt with his little head poking through his beard.
I asked him if he was potty trained, his reply was "yup, he on me once and I threatened to reach up in his and pull his out backwards, he never did it again"

this is my doggie. He is a pitbul/lab mix so not small enough to put under my shirt. I will fix him up with something ike shown in the website... I could get a sturdy pad and combine it with the doggie seatbelts one can get at petsmart.

I saw a few at the lonestar rally and looked into it. I saw some metal cages that hooked into the seat. They were around $200, mine are so small I was thinking about just throwing them in my backpack.
