Re: Dog on an LT?
Years ago on my 1st bike I took my cat to the vet in the tank bag. That didn't go so well with the cat constantly trying to get out as I was riding.
But this will be good. I took measurements of one of our dog training crates and can definitely make this work. What I will do is remove the top case and rear seat and make a flat-bed platform elevated enough to clear the side cases and secure the cage through the platform using the top case mounting points. Our dogs are great & frequent travelers and all get excited only by asking them if they "want to go for a ride". I mentioned this to my animal loving wife who responded "No Friggin' Way!" So I'll be doing this clandestinely and let her know after the fact. As they say, it is easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission. I'll use Diolach's advise to get Daisy (see photo) used to the idea. She's the smartest dog we've ever owned and I think I only need to explain it to her and she'd get it. Stay tuned . . .
