That's one cool dog!

My HardFrisbeeChasingDog won't fit. He gets left behind when we're on 2 wheels. A sidecar would suit him just fine, I think. :D

Hey SFMCjohn,

Where'd the pooch come from? Doesn't look like a native of the Mendo NF, and I don't see a larryboy-style dog house on the back of your KLR. Ride in the saddlebag?
