Out and about on an early morning run the other day, I pulled into a rest area. Seeing a group of fellow riders, I backed in close by. The usual conversation ensued. However, my eyes kept being drawn to the trailer behind the Gold Wing. Particularly to the dogs standing on top of it.
The dogs, trailer, and bike belong to the gentleman standing on the left. I asked permisson to snap a few photos with my camera phone. It was granted. In fact, the guy said there always seemed to be people taking pictures. I can see why. As luck would have it, the camera phone was all I had along for the ride. I always try to take at least the point and shoot Kodak, if not the Nikon. I figured this would be one of those routine days, all business, so I packed neither. Goes to show you can never tell. Isn't there some sort of saying to that effect?
According the to man, the dogs have been riding along for years. Inside the trailer are carpet and blankets to cushion the four legged passengers. I was told they look forward to the ride. There's a plexiglass viewing area to the front of the trailer. Venting can be provided.
Interacting with the canines, I found both to be happy and well adjusted, if not a little quirky compared to other dogs. Kind of like the average motorcyclist, wouldn't you say?
Anyway, just thought this would be interesting to share.
Miles and smiles, ( with some tail wagging thrown in )
