They look ridiculous. Reminds me of Wild Hogs. They are likely dentists, accountants and such.

Motorcycling is serous business. There's no time to smile.

Definitely not my cuppa joe but I like the way their formation looks through the turn. I think the only way the photo could be cooler is if it was a bunch of real 1%'s on homebuilds.
good picture for sure. and it looks like they are having fun too...

Sure they do. My beagle mutt memphis jumps up on my bike and climbs into the milk crate when he wants to ride. The jack russel freaks out and wants out as soon as i start the bike. He only sits in it because he's copying what his big brother does.

Memphis gets to ride, Mowgli doesn't. Memphis loves it. He doesn't know of the dangers, but he doesn't know the dangers of many of the things he could eat/get into outside either. I could keep him safe and locked in a cage at all times, but what kind of life is that?

If the dog obviously enjoys it, why should we not ride with them? Same goes for children, but i don't have any, my dogs are the closest thing to me. Yes, it would be horrible if he was hurt. But seeing the smile on his face in my mirror as i ride makes that risk worth it. Dogs love sensory stimulation. Just think of all the stimulation you get on a bike that you don't get in a car. For a dog, riding on a bike must be like a mushroom trip.

What you want is the greasemonkey plugin for Mozilla (Firefox) and then get the "ADV Picture Once-inator". It then tracks the pictures you've seen and won't load them again, works about 70% of the time. Stopped me from seeing this string of pix :-)

I wish I could get my dog on a bike, but she weighs more than a couple of my ex's. Sadly I don't think I could wedge a big enough crate onto the Speed Triple much less the 675. I've no doubt she would love it, she all but levitates when you ask her if she wants to go for a ride, as long as she gets to head-out-window she's good.

I don't go riding with my dogs but often when coming home my Jack Russell wait she's a female so, Jane Russell will beg for a ride. A quick ride around the block or yard is one of the best treats I could ever give her. I would never consider driving her around town or a long ride. So, I bought a sidecar and when I get it mounted to a tug this will end the bulldogs jelosy.
