Now THAT, is sad.
Riding on in a better place now I hope.
That fairing is awesome
I sure miss Paige, my Husky. She passed away from cancer nearly two years ago.
Snoopy - the Jack Russell Terrorist - is still with us, as is Ivy (the Rat Terrorist) and now Mugsy. No more sidecars, but Mugsy is a 6 lb chihuahua/Dacshund mix that likes riding with me zipped up in my riding jacket with his head sticking out below my helmet.
Dawson's longest is pretty similar, Dempster, Dalton, & lots of North country, 60 days, 12K miles, all before he was 6 months old, rides every day with me & your summary of traveling with dog is spot on! As soon as I get the keys & put on the harness I wear to clip him to me he does a victory dance in the living room, doesn't care where or how far we go he's happy. Loves to be going along where ever we go, nose in the wind taking it all in
my last trip was slated at 6900 miles but i got home in 11000. (traveling with no destination or schedule). next summer we hit alaska. my route goes something like this. map says 13000 miles but i am pretty sure it will end up more like 20000
I could write a long list of things to do, places to see, roads to check out but bottom line it's really hard to not have a great trip up there.
We had our days that weren't so fun
& our days that were
Some days we were just worn out
Some folks thought I was Nuts for trying this
& bringing one of these
But in the end Adventure Dog
Added something to the trip that I would not trade for anything, lots of us ride to AK & it is a great ride, once in a lifetime kinda ride. The value he added to the trip was well worth the few delays he caused & the extra pile of gear required to bring him along & the best part of the whole deal is the added character he has derrived from growing up on a motorcycle road trip. Doesn't care what rig or where we are going, when I start loading up he is all excited for the next adventure, even just a quick ride to the local dog park.
Enjoy the trip (hard not too) if I there were just two places I wish we had set aside more time to check out it would have to be McCarthy/Kennicot Mine & the North Canol Road. The other little item depending on what time of year (we went about on the summer solstice) is that north of the arctic circle can be much warmer than expected when the sun is up 24/7, make sure you have enough water/ice to keep you riding buddy cool enough & bring anything you may need for him, vets are non-existent for many miles in some places.
What breed is he?
American Eskimo, kind of a small standard/larger mini on size, not sure on the others but this one definitely has a little attitude that takes some work to keep in check some days & not so much on riding in the heat, I have to keep a cooler with ice & water & towels in it to keep wetting him down to keep him cool & keep a close eye on him in the heat, little brat will keep soldiering on until he gets sick so it is pretty important to keep a close watch & keep cooling him as needed on the bike.
he is beautiful.
Thanks, more important to me is he makes a great little sidekick, up for anything that involves going somewhere, enjoy the AK ride, looks like an awesome route, if you haven't already google McCarthy/Kennicot mine, some 90 miles of dirt road to get there but pretty cool to check out, I wish we had set more time aside for it but that's how it goes when you haven't been there yet, you just never know what you will find fascinating & what will be not that big a deal.
Hell yeah you can put a dog on the bike!
I just saw a full grown pit bull lengthwise on the footwell of a Honda Cub in Hanoi Vietnam the other. Family vehicles man!
LOL, that's probably a bit more effective guard dog than mine!
This is Crevette (French for shrimp), a long hair dachshund ... rider

AWESOME! What case did you use to make that? I looked on Pelican's website but couldn't find it.
My wiener dog "Napoleon". Not on my bike, but armored up and ready to go. Helmet & spine protection.
Its a Pelican 1460 from Nalpak with screw hatches and vents from West Marine.
