This is a great thread

...but I might be biased.
However, I limit her riding experience to the back roads and trails.

Damn! those are some serious riding stats for miss priss! Dawson only has about 15k on the BMW, he better keep working on it, lol, I guess he has time he is only a year old. She certainly looks like she loves to ride, I can see that "oh ya, keep scratching right there" look & she is just riding.

I've been stopped once with Tyler on-board, but it was for something else and the GSP trooper didn't mention him.
I've had the occasional stink eye over it but never stopped, not sure what they would even write me for, guessing neither was the occasional a-hole type LEO giving me stink eye for it wasn't sure either. Most either pretend not to see it or are openly amused by it. Generally he is very well behaved on the bike, but on the way to the dog park to run he gets a little antsy on the bike & I have to stay on him a little bit or he likes to stand up over the windshield & make me look around him to see where we are going, I guess if a LEO observed that maybe he could come up with something to write me for.

Truth is that if I ever do get written for some bs ticket for Dawson riding with me I will fight the ticket & keep riding with him anyway.

She does ok on the back like that? No harness or strap to you or the bike? Good rider I guess, seems like most bigger dogs I have seen riding do the sidecar thing, I bet she has to pay a little attention to stay on. Somewhere on here I saw a video of a larger dog riding off road on the back like that & the dog was a great rider, looked ahead, read terrain, braced accordingly, really impressive skills, maybe it was your video. I don't remember the bike, just remember being impressed by the riding skills of the dog because the rider wasn't slacking off the throttle any & the dog actually had to pay attention to stay on.

Great thread! My dog Rosie was a 100 pound black labrador and the sweetest creature I've ever known. She was too big to ride on the bikes with me but she sure loved helping me work on them! I have dozens of pictures of her lending a paw; she always had good advice - keep calm and carry on!





She lost her battle with hip dysplasia when she wasn't quite 10 years old. I really miss her help. I thought many times about getting a trailer for her to ride on but never followed through; I was afraid with all her hip and spine issues that it would be too hard on her. She sure loved riding in the truck, though!

I met these folks at a gas station one day in Lander, Wyoming. They said every time they got their riding gear out the dog just went crazy with joy.





Maybe I'll get a smaller dog next time so it can ride with me. They are such wonderful companions, good on all you folks who take them with you on your bikes!

Doug

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."
That's hilarious, amazing the attention a dog on a motorcycle gets, Dawson is such a little ham, at intersections he scans the intersection to see who is going to take his picture & then poses for them. He got so much attention on the bike when we rode to Inuvik & Prudoe (like store owners offered us money to just hang out in front of thier store) type attention, that he really thinks he is something on the motorcycle, about halfway through the ride Don & I realized we really weren't two riders on a fun adventure north, we were just roadies for the rockstar dog.

When I'm riding on the highways in the states, it seems that everyone wants to take out their cell phone and take a picture, sometimes while driving, I usually give them one of these and ride away.

The reason mine rides on the back is to avoid problems already mentioned with me seeing, or him bothering me. On my F650CS though, he rides in front because the back seat isnt big enough, and his feet go into the stuff bay which keeps him down low.

Last Summer, I had a cage driving along beside me on the freeway for quite a while, then it started to drift over into my lane. When I looked over at it, saw the driver taking a picture with her cell phone.

Dawson got a late start I guess, got him at 6 weeks, riding at 8 weeks, everybody thought I was nutz for putting a 3 month old puppy on the gas tank & heading out to Inuvik & Prudoe & I guess that is a fair evaluation. I have to say though, that while having a puppy along did slow us down a little here & there, what he added to the trip was priceless & that kind of time spent with him at that age has rewarded me with the best side kick & co-pilot I could ever ask for. He is only a year old now, Eskimos have a life expectancy of 14-16 yrs, seems like a great deal to me.
Very sorry to hear that Scarf is no longer with us, I cringe at the thought of that day with Dawson. Does Flex ride? Can you post some pics of him?

This is Louie, he's a Jack Russell and seems to like going on trips. I don't take him on loud pipe bikes, so he only has a few thousand miles under his collar.

Louie doesn't get upset in the co-pilot spot? Damn, if I tried to put Dawson in there he would be upset with me, lol.

Where is the last pic taken? Looks strangely familiar to me, Rock Creek Rd maybe?

He got really mad at some french tourists that kept putting their hands in his space and he bit me as I was batting hands away. Not his fault, he was confined in a box and got pissed off. He doesn't like babies either.


Last pic is at the Donnell Overlook up on 108 ~ Sonora Pass.

Ahh, I knew I had seen that view, been over 108 on bike, truck & camper (that was an experience) & snowmobile (really pretty on a sled) great highway, have to say the bike in best suited for the road as compared to the other toys. Pretty hard to blame Louie for defending his space, some just don't get that I guess. Hmmm Dawson seems ok with babies but sometimes tries to intimidate toddlers, never seen him nip at anyone just jump up & try to buffalo them a little.
