Took the dog for a ride....

My daughter and I just took a ride that is probably worth sharing. We've rigged up a dog carrier. Worked pretty well. If he can enjoy riding, then he's gonna get out of the house more often. Everybody wins!

On a side note, we stopped for a break at the furthest point from home (probably 3 miles ) I knew that my tank was just about full. I told my daughter that she'd better check her fuel. She looked in the tank and said that she couldn't see anything. I looked and she was right. It looked to be bone dry. I figured it wasn't a big deal; I could always ride home and get her some more while she waited. But it wasn't necessary; the bike made it home anyway. There couldn't have been more than a sipfull of fuel in that tank. These things are very good on gas.

NICE! My little wimpy dogs keep jumping out of my trailer. Those little buggers get spooked.

Thinking about it I probably should have taken close up photos of how to tie down your dog for bike riding. I'll do that the next time we take him out. It needs to be done right.

Fumes is a good point. Being unable to ride back there, I can't say for sure.
But when moving I'm thinking it can't be too bad. Opinions?

It is a matter that I ought to be careful with, after all.

Kewl, blue! Like your doggie carriage!

Care ta post the plans for the carrier?

I 4 1 would appreciate being able to carry my 10 year old (chubber) of a Goldie around with my bike. The maltese I can virtually put in a carry bag! HE LOVES IT!

Fumes. Hmmmm.

Oh, well. Use my 'lectric.
