Man’s Best Friend
(and riding buddy).
Riding with your best friend? Ok, four-legged best friend? Good. That’s what this sport is all about, having fun with your friends.
The shape and size of a dogs head vary a bit, much like our own human heads do. And so do our preferences and taste.
So if you’re going to strap on a helmet on your own brain compartment, just be sure and strap on his (or hers) helmet too.
Check out Helmets for Dogs here.
While riding with your cat is not nearly as popular as riding with your dog, replicating the look of a cat on your own motorcycle helmet is. Check out these Cat Ear Motorcycle Helmets if you are more of a cat-lover than a dog-lover.
Tip; you won’t find much when you are on the hunt for a helmet for your cat to strap on to go for a ride. But a small to medium size dog helmet will do the trick, just don’t let that cat see the label. See above “Helmets for Dogs.”
Animal Pet Carriers – for the Motorcycle.
Carrying your pet with you on the ride can be a little tricky. Training Ol’ Fido to ride on the tank is a fun little accomplishment to show off to your riding buddies, but actually going on a ride longer than 5 minutes that can be really stressful on your little friends joints and muscles. The sun can also be tiresome on your dogs eyes without a good pair of Doggles.
You don’t ride on your car for over an hour by surfing on the hood while someone else is driving right? Just how long do you think your could do that for at 10mph? How about 50mph?
- Small pets can fit into backpacks design to carry them.
- Medium size dogs can go into a pet-trunk on your bike.
- And those larger fellas that will tip your bike over if your tried to get them on it are going to need their own pull behind motorcycle trailer.
