80 lb dog on the passenger seat??

Postby guitarzan » Wed Dec 24, 2014 6:26 pm



Hi,
I have an 80 lb dog that I want to ride in the passenger seat of my Goldwing. I have one of those vest things that buckle her to the seat belt in a car, but I need to come with something that she can be safe and comfortable with that I can make. I want to take her up to Wisconsin this Spring and its an 8 hour ride. She would need to lay down and move around some.

Any Ideas anyone. I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks
Frank

This is how I did it back in the 70s. We did 12 hr days many times by stopping every 100 miles so Cody could stretch his legs. Sat up all the time. He sometimes would nod off laying his head on my shoulder.

You could remove the tourpac to add a seat for your hound.

Wow, back in the 70's, those were good times. You two look like you had a great time. Is that made out of plywood? I will have to take something off to fit something like that. Thank you so much newday777.

I do not like pets personally, but if I did.....
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

Yes it was made of plywood.
We had 35,000 miles riding together, 5 cross country trips.

i too have been working at the best answer to this question ,,My dog is only 30 lbs ,, i have been wracking my brain to figure this out . Attach a dog cage to the back of the wing and so on ,, But so far the only safe answer i have is ,let the dog stay home or with friends . Look at it as you would with your wife or husband .Sometimes time apart can be a good thing ![or not]
About 20 years ago ,,i left my wife at home ,, i still cant find her .. OH BOY !

Well thank you for the Ideas but I really am looking for something that my Betty can fit in that would let her ride in on the back seat. Sure did put a smile on my face tho!

The 1200s are a little easier to rig up a seat like I had as your tourpac (trunk) pops off and the mounts for the rack are accessible to mount a seat for her.
