    I took the rig to a Garand match today. I took the seat out to fit the rifle cases in the floor of the hack. When I got home, Bryson saw the cushion out and assumed it was his time to ride. So SWMBO put on his doggles, and he proceeded to beg...

    And eventually I gave in...

    I really wanna take my dogs with me on an upcoming camping trip, but I don't want to buy a sidecar and spend a fortune.
    Aside from tank and tail bags, are there any other alternatives for a KLR 650?
    Anyone build anything cool?
    Mind you, my two dogs are small, but they can be rambunctious.

    Hmm... The dog carrier is a good idea. Did you bolt it down also? Or is it just strapped down in multiple points?
    It looks like you cut side vents open and cut half the roof off as well. Am I correct?

    Correct on all counts. Held in place using three different attachment points. Lots of reinforcing plates to prevent the bolts from tearing the plastic, and attached to the rear rack, the grab rail, and then strapped to the side rails for extra support. Some hardware shown below:

    A thick piece of EVA foam filled in the floor, and then a thinner EVA foam mat sat out the front to give him leg room. The cut-down top allows him to sit up. He was protected from the bugs and stones by me being in front, but he still got the wind. Biggest ride was three x 900 km days straight! He's done two 1,000 km minimum rides with FarRiders, our Aussie long distance riders, so he's a well-travelled boy.

    Love the ingenuity.
    I actually have two dog carriers. One smaller than the one in your pics, and one larger.
    I suppose I could cut the small one down and mount it similar to yours to have one dog in the rear, but then I have to figure out where to put the other dog.

    Bryson has informed me that he prefers the windshield off for rides. Human passengers tend to prefer it. I'm kind of getting annoyed at pulling out tools for this every week. So yesterday I went out on a quest for a 8x1.00 wing nut. Bryson has done a few rides thus far, and I figured this would be a great test, especially since Lowe's is his favorite store.

    So I loaded him up and took the long way, right through downtown where there were lots od dogs, pedestrians, and distractions. He took it all in stride, and we even made a gas stop. He behaved perfectly and even posed for some photo snapping tourists.

    Now the next test is to start stacking some mileage. He just might be ready for June vacation after all.

    Howdy All,

    Today was a great day for a ride, I put the Boys in the panniers of the Beemer rig and went for a malt at the local drive-in restaurant.

    How are you doing Mr. Cob? Let us know if ever coming south... We just did a bit over a month in Death Valley... quite a space where to get lost! Ready to go back for sure...

    Stay well... Ara and Spirit

    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.

    Howdy Dana,

    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.
