Hi everyone! I just bought my 04 Silver Wing yesterday. It's my 4th scooter in over 20 years of riding, and the biggest yet. I've been thinking it would be fun to take my dog (just under 20 lbs) on rides with me. I found a carrier that I like (www.dogryder.com) and was wondering if anyone here had attached one to their bikes. Or if anyone had ideas about how to attach a dog so that they're secure but comfortable and can't interfere with the rider.

simple---GIVI box with hole cut for dog's head, but small enough so his shoulders will not go thru. Rode to Central America/Alaska/Europe/James Bay Japan and Korea that way.

Dog===Sam Jack Russell died running in to boat prop, Stanley Jack Russell, old age, Moose Yorkshire died old age. Looking for new dog.

20 lbs on high end to have all that weight up high and able to move around after rear axle.

Also on scooter, "tank bag" on hump works well for small dog.

A guy in the US cut a hole in the rear seat so the small dog could stick its head out. I'm sure if you trawl the net some info will turn up. He did post pictures on a forum but for the life of me I cannot remember which.

I remember seeing it awhile ago on this forum

Since my dog , Moose, is 75 lbs plus , that method would not work for me
Either I invest in a trailer or a side car for him to ride with me .
So far , i have not deemed his companionship on a ride that essential so
he gets to stay at home and guard the property from cats .

A trailer seems like a great idea for a larger dog Smile I'll figure something out for mine. I think his weight is a little high for a top box, since that's located so high and back. I like the idea of a box that straps to the passenger seat, so I'll try that. Along with a harness to latch him to the inside of the box. And if he doesn't freak out, I'll invest in something more durable and comfortable for him.

Now I'm getting curious about towing a small trailer with the SW. I'll ask my friend Google.

Nice group here, I'll be around Smile

I have a small dog 14 pounds I was thinking about putting him in a backpack leaving the zipper partial open for his head. It would only be for short rides. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but its on my to do list.

My 10 lbs Chiwawa mix fits in a small soft dog carrier that fits in the front,a strap around the handle bars and held between my legs she is very comfortable there. We take her with us when the heat is not to hight.there is no air movement and it can get hot.

We used the Petmate Curvations Pet Carrier from Petsmart and took off the top of the carrier. With the holes in the sides it worked well to use some straps to fasten to the side rails. The box sits right behind the driver.

This allows my 20lb All American Dog to sit back there and enjoy the ride. He will lean around me to catch the wind or he lays down. Last time I took him out last year I couldn't get him out of the carrier. He wanted to keep going!

That looks pretty cool. Do you use a harness on him to keep him from jumping out? I'm planning to try something like that.

Or you can buy a ready made carrier from a great bike accessory company.
