GL1800 LARGE Dog Pet Carrier?

Post by StuDrums » Thu Jul 26, 2018 12:48 pm



Hey All,

I've been doing some research on the net, but can't seem to find ANYTHING for a 40lb dog. There's a bunch for the tiny ones, but nothing out there for my girl... Beast Riders is the only one that's feasible at the moment, but thy're about 4 months behind (I talked to them yesterday). The only other one that would have been perfect is the Dog-On. There's a video on YouTube, but the site is dead, and so is the dude that originally thought of it...

Any ideas? And while they're funny, spare me the pics of [https://www.google.com/search?q=Dog+Hou ... 20&bih=949]Dog Houses on motorcycle trailers[/url]..

Thanks!
Stu

Well, first off, 40# is not a large dog. However, I would agree that 40# would be large for trying to somehow put one into some kind of carrier on a Goldwing.

Now onto the practicality of this. I'm thinking that you're finding a bunch of stuff for little dogs, 20# and less, might be because the limitation on the trunk is 20#. No? I was thinking you're wanting to replace the trunk with some type of carrier, but even that would still attach to the frame at the same points the trunk does and that would still limit the weight pretty close to that 20# limit, right?

Unless I'm completely misunderstanding and you are talking about something for a trailer. I kinda got the impression you weren't wanting something like that, but I might be mistaken again and you're just not looking for something too cute and instead more safe and functional.

Thanks for the replies folks. Yeah, I’m looking for a seat, or some kind of harness that will install on top of the current passenger seat. It’ll be a different story if I have a passenger AND the dog, but right now it’s just Katie.

Ah, the seat! I should have figured.

Beast Seats seems to be your best/only option, but as you mentioned, they're a bit behind.

Our Bailey is standard size Beagle with longer legs and he barely fits on the passenger seat. I have his leash SLIP TIED to the trunk rack. Just tight enough so he knows he can't move too far but in case we go down it will slip out.
When he turns he bumps my back. I also use two 5 ft rods that I bungee to the trunk rack and extend to under my armpits. They bump Bailey's lower neck and is his stopping point. He's never tested them with a good push tho I feel him bumping it.

I have a 55 lb Newfoundland - the only way I see taking her with me is a sidecar.

55 pound Newfoundland? Only about 4 months old yet?

I have four Basenjis, I hesitate to take them in the car, let alone the GW. They each weight about 9 to 14 Kgs, quite a juggling trip when they get the fidgets, or see something they want to chase.
