If that is really what you think of biking, why do it to yourself?

Because I have protective gear, am aware of everything thats happening (well I hope so), and ride a bike by choice. Even that doesn't guarantee my safety, but its a choice I make of my own free will.

what chance does a pet have if you drop a bike even at a moderate speed of say 30 to 40mph. not much.

Then you risking your life on a bike makes you as selfish and inconsiderate as the person taking a dog on a bike.
Won't somebody think of the poor people whose lives you will destroy if you die!

Bla bla bla. stupid response, but thats to be expected of your responses sometimes.

Why do you ride if thats what you think? Are you telling me no one, not a single person, would grieve if you checked out? We all know there is a risk, even if we ride perfectly there always a chance some cager will ruin our day. So we should all stop riding? is that your stand point?

My point that you missed completely, is that there is no additional protection worth a feck that you can give a dog on a bike. The bike stops suddenly and the dog goes flying. Tie him down by the collar and the poor dog ends up with a broken neck.
A pillion rider does or should have the protective gear, they are also aware of whats going on, and able to grab hold of something or brace themselves if they get nervous something a dog cant do.


Besides somehow I dont think I could get a fully grown Red and white setter on my bike, a side car would be the only possible safer solution and even then personally I would not do that.

Sometimes?!?!? I'm aiming for most of the time. I must be slacking!

Anyhow, I used to have a dog who loved being on the bike. I always let her decide if she wanted to go pillion, and she never refused.
