Howdy Ara,

I was in southern California and Arizona from February 13th till march 10th when I came back home. Death Valley is a very neat place but I have spent so much time there I am kinda bored with it, I need to find more places in the southwest to play. Be sure to give Spirit a couple of ear scratches and pat or two for me.

Has the snow level dropped at your home yet, can you ride the Beemer rig or are you still using the Ural and two wheel drive just to get out of your driveway?

Pretty lean on snow this year it seems you guys have been getting it all before it gets here. I have mainly been riding this one to work for the last few weeks.

Took Bryson out to chase the North America Wild Card Tag today...

The tag was a uninhabitable abandoned house.

Found this one...


And then this one...


And after the grab, we dropped the tag at the local dog park.

Here are my pups

First ride of the season last week! Mango Lassie is on the left and Mellon Collie is on the right. I'm fond of stupid names for my dogs.

Both dogs are wearing chest harnesses, but it's hard to see under all that fluff. The sidecar has seatbelts, so it is easy to attach the harnesses to the seatbelts.

Here's my kids again before embarking on today's ride. It bums me out to think about leaving either behind; so I've taken the idea I've seen with other's 2-dog setups for the Ural tub. It's taken a few rides, but I think I've finally got my setup dialed in for dog comfort and security.(I'll post pics of my setup in the other dog thread.) Murphy is the big guy in front--just a pup really at 16-months. He just topped 100 pounds, but he is still growing. He's a Newfoundland/Bernese Mtn Dog mix. He's still learning his manners when it comes to behaving in the tub. He tries to take off his goggles (only when we stop); he lurches agains his harness straps, which "shakes" the whole bike; and he's so tall that he has a tendacy to head-butt my throttle elbow at some inappropriate times.

In back is my 3yr old Australian Shepherd girl, Aria. She was the one I was worried about in the sidecar--didn't think she would take to it. I was so wrong. She is just a perfect passenger, and I cannot believe how so well behaved she is. She never makes a peep; rides equally well up front or ine back; and just always seems to have an expression of utter contentment (bliss?) on our rides. I had to take the windshield off because she was always trying to peer around it--likes it off much better. Although she's only been a passenger for about a month now, she now pulls toward the garage on morning walks instead of to the front door (and her waiting food bowl). (She is far too smart for her own good.). I'm also getting used to having nearly 200 pounds of dog in the sidecar. (I'd like to get some scenic photos taken out on the roads--and I've seen many people taking them through their car windows--we haven't yet stopped and posed for any.)

Is there such a thing as a very small sidecar designed to accommodate our furry friends and maybe a LITTLE more?

Not that I know of. There is that sportbike leaner photo that keeps poppiing up on here, but I'm certain that was a custom build. That being said, if you can dream it, the likes of CSM and DMC can probably build it.

After a few trips to the dog park in which Bryson hung out in the water with his favorite gal Mickey (a Weimeraner), Bryson needed a bath. Normally drying him is the hard part. I had a better idea though. Wet dog, warm day, and a Ural. Problem solved.

Pooch Pad

Posted this over at SovietSteeds, but figured the crowd here could benefit from the info. I just picked up our Pooch Pad today from Bobby at Riddles Custom Upholstery. He did a little something different for me. I wanted snaps on the retaining straps, so I thought I'd pipe in and give a visual as to what I was going for. The seatback on my 2011 Gear-Up bolts in, and I didn't want to have to unbolt it every time I switched from pooch to person in the sidecar. This should remedy the problem and add for a quick conversion.

First, the Pooch Pad itself, already being enjoyed by Bryson the Giant Schnauzer. He didn't waste any time laying down on it while I worked on the bike.





Here is the view of the straps with the snaps so you can see the final product.



HDFlame mentions the bolts in the back of the hack for his straps. My 2011 didn't have those, but had rubber plugs in their place.



I bought new bolts and wingnuts to make the windshield quickly detachable as well, so I used the extras for this application. I removed the plugs and inserted the bolts/nuts with to secure the straps.





Seatback attached, view from the trunk.



And the view from the tub with the snaps exposed. Now all I have to do is snap the dog bed in when it is Bryson's turn to ride.



All snapped up!



And Bryson is ready to go!



But I had to test it out for myself. This thing is COMFY!




So now all I have to do is pop two snaps and drop in the seat for human passengers. I've got wingnuts on the windshield too, so I can go from person mode to pooch mode in about two minutes.

Nice... I would check into this harness though...

Soft pad and movement will make your dog [s] loose weight and insecure as I found out with Spirit. He lost about 5 lbs pretty quick and when a dog weighs 58lbs to start with, it shows...

This has worked out real well. Of course Spirit rides about 50,000 miles a year for the 6th consecutive year, might not make much of a difference for short rides.

Be well... Ara and Spirit
