Sometimes, if I'm doing autobahn speeds (the toll roads here arent patrolled, sometimes I cruise at up to 200+ km/h, with and without dog), I tie a bandana around his ears just to keep them from flopping around. However, if he's either sitting in front behind a windshield, or on the back right behind your back (the way mine rides), he's pretty well protected from wind and engine noise. It's like riding in a convertible car.

The doggles seem to be best while riding in really dusty or wet conditions. Normally my little guy is much more comfortable without them.

Isn't it great how well these guys can communicate their comfort or discomfort? Even without seeing him, I can feel him move behind me and know if he's getting tired or scared.

At times, i worry about possible damage to Pugsley's hearing while riding, but not sure how to protect them. Yes, it is amazing how these dogs can communicate while riding behind on the pillion. I've had Pugsley for almost six years now, and am still amazed by this little character. http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/...1/PA180537.jpg

Tried the Doggles too, same deal, no go with Dawson, as far as hearing protection I have actually taken my helmet off & put my head where he rides & run it up to 85 or so & honestly I think most of the noise I hear is generated by my helmet, where Dawson rides it is pretty quiet actually.

I don't understand why I didn't get to go too Tyler (taken by my wife at the cabin a few minutes after I left for a ride without him)




Damn, it's a good thing I'm not attached.
This is Awesome, I have seen all four of those looks with Dawson, I wear a collar with a segment of an old leash on it that clips to his harness when we ride & the crazy hopping dance he does when I put on my collar is hilarious, he knows he's going somewhere when I put on my collar, lol, when I get my helmet & don't put on my collar I get look #4.

Here the little sidewalk superintendent is checking to make sure they are doing it right in a construction zone on the Dalton

https://

& This one is a bit lengthy climbing the Attigun pass but also shows a bit of him keeping an eye on my buddy Don when he pulled over for a pic, funny as hell, if I lagged back at all following Don, Dawson would give me this "what are we waiting for" look & if Don lagged back much Dawson would be looking over my shoulder checking on him.

https://

We did 12,000 miles like this in 2 months & now not only does he expect to go everywhere on the bike with me, I feel like something is missing if I ride without him. Best co-pilot you could ask for, always up for adventure, never cares what the weather is or how far, never complains about sleeping in a tent, doesn't care how cheap the hotel is or what we have for dinner.

You can tell a guy is secure in his "manhood" when he rides around with a "purse dog" in his tank bag.

I've had several people ask what kind of dog Tyler is, and since lots of folks have never heard of Papillons I'll typically reply, "Bavarian Wolf Hound" which of course results in puzzled looks.

One day when stopped at a red light in town with Tyler, a SUV with kids were next to me windows down, giggling about the dog on a motorcycle and the lady driving asks the question, I give my normal "Bavarian Wolf Hound" answer to which she replied, "funny, looks just alike a Papillon."

I've often wanted a dog small enough to ride in a tankbag, but those breeds tend to not do well in four feet of snow we get around here, nor can they retrieve waterfowl in the warmer months. So it's goldens for me, with the requisite sidecar as I believe a dog should be able to see me, to be caressed now and then on our travels.

But boy could we scoot if he'd fit in the tankbag!

Another canine riding question - Any of you guys ever been hassled by LEO's for riding with your dog on the bike, particularly if you ride with them in front of you like I do?

I've been stopped once with Tyler on-board, but it was for something else and the GSP trooper didn't mention him.

That dog, might be just a "little too big" to ride up front, but that's just my opinion. Obviously the rider didn't feel unsafe doing it, so not for me to judge.

I believe in GA there is something about "blocking the driver's view of instruments or blocking access to controls". Can't remember exactly. I'll have to look up the exact code.

I've never been stopped in my 40,000 miles of riding in the U.S. and Canada with Pugsley. He rides on the pillion seat, harnessed and double strapped.
