Wonder how much it would cost me to get it down here. Was thinking if turning the 2t into a side car pulling machine.

Bloke in St Austell rides a BMW trail bike with a top box.The lid has a hole cut in it,in which his Jack Russell sticks his head out of.Maybe an idea for the smaller dog /bike owner.7stone of Gordon Setter cross German Shepeard might need a rethink.......

There are a few companies who do dog carriers that will fit onto a rear luggage rack

That pupryder website looks like it could be the first website ever made. Tony I am guessing riding with him inside my jacket would be frowned upon ?

Yeh I can see why it would be against the law. Side car is the safest bet I reckon.

Try www.Uship.com it's free to put a listing on there and the longer you leave it the cheaper it gets. I've had quotes in the past for around £60 to bring scoots from Scotch-land to Plymouth.

Saw a woman on the Island this year, she had a plastic dome fitted to the back. If I have got my links correct, think she is part of this interview.

Yeah that's the one, I saw her several times over the weekend riding around with the dog in the back box, which looked like it was something that she had knocked up herself, also saw the scooter parked up a few times, think she has it in a Betty Boop theme.
