    Man's best friend- dog rider methodology

    Goede Morgen!
    Anyone have photos of how to address bringing Fido along? Tank bag or rear box.
    I have a 96 R1100RT with side bags and only a rear mount. Petey hops on the bike when I let him in the garage, wants to ride!

    He looks like he should be able to fly at your side...

    Not me, but perhaps the best solution.

    When I had my '73 R75/5, I used several C-clamps to hold a milk crate on to the luggage rack. I put a thin piece of wood with dense foam padding in the bottom, to close off the holes and give him some grip. Bear loved it, until he got too big for it (mom was half German Shepard and half Huskie, dad was a Dobie who jumped the fence).

    Addendum - We used to have a guy show up at the Rock Store with his Huskie perched on the gas tank. He put a layer of carpet on the tank so the dog would have a grip. Beautiful dog and very smart. The local cops gave him a couple of tickets for "unsafe operation" or "endangering an animal", but my understanding is that he beat them every time.

    A buddy of mine carried his Jack Russel in a milk crate behind the rear seat.
