Dogs on Motorcycles

My dog, Pugsley, has logged over 40,000 miles as a passenger on my bikes. He has owned me for about five years, and during that period of time, I've never left home without him. It is absolutely incredible, the joy he has added to my motorcycle touring adventures.

I'm wondering if anyone else would be interested in sharing pictures of dogs on bikes??

Here is Pugsley: http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/...PA010346-1.jpghttp://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/...1/PB080021.jpg

How does your dog stay secured to the bike? Or does he/she/it just balance?

In Tyler's case he is in a harness and tethered into the bag. I am under no delusions that it is in any way, shape, or form, safe.

Ural's are tons of fun. I actually bought a 06 Tourist a few years ago, thinking that Pugsley would like it more than the pillion seat. However, he always crawled up into the nose of the sidecar, possibly because it provided more wind protection. However, I want another Ural, and regretted selling it the same day it left the yard with the new owner.

You sure have a cute passenger in that picture!!

I've had goldens for decades, and just couldn't bear to leave them behind on my longer rides.

If you're asking me that question, I started Pugsley out on a Kawasaki Concours, riding in a small toolbox, strapped to me. Then, I bought a Roadhound Pet carrier for my ST1300A, attached it to the custom made luggage rack. We put 25,000 with that system, which worked like a charm.

When mice ate the wiring on my ST1300A, the dealer loaned me an old GL1200 for several weeks while my ST was being repaired. Pugsley loved that large pillion seat, since he could touch me, put his feet on my shoulders, etc. After I saw how much more he liked that Wing, I decided on a new model, heated seat, etc. He is now harnessed and double strapped to the armrests. He leans with the bike, and seems to thoroughly enjoy the ride. If I get anywhere near the bike, he sits by it, wagging his tail in anticipation of a ride. He always barks in joy when leaving the yard. Amazing, the joy this little character has brought into my life.

Yes, I hate to admit it, but Pugsley picked out my last bike!!

Ive been considering taking my dachshund with me for quite some time. He loves riding on my atv.

Im gonna try the baby carrier idea and see if that works. I dont want him scratching my tank.

I've seen a lot of motorcycle pet carriers, but never one exactly like that. However, at a dog show last year, a triker friend bought one similar to that for carrying her dog into PetSmart, etc. She uses a TBag pet carrier to transport her Weiner Dog on her trike.

Looks like a repurposed baby carrier to me. Have you checked at a baby goods store?

It is called "outward hound". I bought it at a "flea" market, pun intended
