"pet carriers for scooters?"
 
   A client was curious about transporting his puppydog on a scooter and
asked me about pet carriers for scooters. Anybody use one, build one or know of one online for purchase. Is it legal?

   I don't think its a good idea but I would imagine one of those pet bags for little dogs on the floor board hooked into the helmet hook would work. Im sure my bulldog would ride on the scoot but I wont let him.

Boy oh boy, those puppies arent cheap! I love my dog but at that price, I believe she will be staying home where she is safe and sound. That aside, the client in question has a few dollars to spend and will appreciate the site.
Thanks

   I know that i've seen people take their small dogs on special made boxes on motorcycles. They just attach it to the passenger seat somehow. Most of them are open at the top, so the dog was trained to stay in it, but i'm sure you could use one with a top as well. I'm sure if it will work on a motorcycle it will on a scooter as well.

On a side note I went to the Sturgis motorcycle rally this year, and this one couple had a side car, except it was attached to the back of the motorcycle, and had 2 lab-sized dogs in them. I thought that was kind of cool. And my boyfriend saw a lady that took her large dog on the motorcycle. He just sat on the back and put his little paws up on her shoulders while they rode!!

   If the "puppydog" is small enough, a small pet carrier attached to the rack should do it. We lived overseas, and took our cats in individual carriers that fit in front of our airline seats. Those carriers would easily fit onto most scooter racks I've seen (facing sideways). They aren't very expensive. Just make sure they are attached well to the rack (via bolts or multiple bungies), and make sure the door area is secured too.

Nice to see that you're keeping the cat on TOP of the scooter now.

   If it ain't broke, fix it till it is!

I liked the one from that "Vacation" movie, just tie the leash to the taillight for short trips. He'll probably keep up for the first mile.

   I like the idea of placing the dog in a carrier on the floorboards. I have an LX150 so there's no brake to interfere. With the legshield in front and my legs to each side, my Boston Terrier should feel very safe. I'll try it someday.

   I've had the P125 for a little over a year, I think. It has a Polini 177 kit and a Leo Vinci pipe. Right now it's about to go in for paint (it's all apart.)

I'll post a pic of it when it's done.

PS, that sticker cracks me up, I wonder what inspired it?

   Bottom line, it can be darn expensive to transport a puppydog.

   > Is it legal?

In CA, the relevant code appears to be section 23117 (http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d11/vc23117.htm):

"Carrying Animal in Motor Truck

23117. (a) No person driving a motor vehicle shall transport any animal in the back of the vehicle in a space intended for any load on the vehicle on a highway unless the space is enclosed or has side and tail racks to a height of at least 46 inches extending vertically from the floor, the vehicle has installed means of preventing the animal from being discharged, or the animal is cross tethered to the vehicle, or is protected by a secured container or cage, in a manner which will prevent the animal from being thrown, falling, or jumping from the vehicle.

(b) This section does not apply to any of the following:

(1) The transportation of livestock.

(2) The transportation of a dog whose owner either owns or is employed by a ranching or farming operation who is traveling on a road in a rural area or who is traveling to and from a livestock auction.

(3) The transportation of a dog for purposes associated with ranching or farming.
"

Farmers and ranchers must have a good lobby. Good point to know if you're doing this in a pickup and get pulled over - just say "I'm going to a livestock auction and section 23117(b), part 2 says that's OK."


The "No Pets" thing is weird, but if you analyze things legally, your underseat storage or a top box would indeed be a "manner which will prevent the animal from being thrown, falling, or jumping from the vehicle. "

   You need to live in Idaho. We just passed a law about kids under 6 being in either a car seat or a booster.

But they can legally ride in the back of the truck!!!

So here you can get pulled over for the kid not being in a car seat, but if you are in a truck and the kids in the back, then no problem.

BTW, have taken the beagle on short trips on the scoot. Side car or trailer would be awesome. This was asked on another forum and it was shot down, because the dog could get hurt.

   We need to be looking to the Japanese for help here, they have always been cutting edge in design and implementation. This might work:
