Pet Carriers?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by wezzatee, Sep 26, 2015.

  1. Hey all! How are we going?

    Spring is finally here, and I've decided it's time I take my pooch out for rides with daddy. Was wondering if anyone has a tank pet carrier bag they can recommend? I ride a Ninja 300 and am not sure if this activity is possible as I have only seen people bring their dogs on tourers/cruisers.



    Any info will be much appreciated! :)

  2. Law changes a couple of years back prohibit carrying animals in front of you so any carrier would need to be on the pillion position behind you. What size dog is it?

    You must not ride a motorcycle with:
    • more than one pillion passenger
    • more passengers in a sidecar than it is designed to carry
    • an animal between you and the handlebars (except for working farmers who can ride with the animal for up to 500 metres)
    • a child under 8 years old unless they are in a sidecar.

  3. I saw something like this so decided to make my own for our little Scottie. There's an eye-bolt inside the case that goes all the way through to the base plate so there is no chance of the top-box coming off. He wears a full neck and body harness that just has enough length to the eye-bolt so he can sit up but not get any further out.

    And then for the big fella...

  5. like barry_mckibarry_mcki has suggested, I seen this when out and about one day and thought what a classic. Asked him about the legalities of it and he said no problems even had cops pull him over asking to take pictures.
    dog.
