    Me and Georgie better give some serious thought before riding in the Evergreen State.













    Motorcyclist cited for dog riding on back

    OLYMPIA, Wash. – A motorcyclist was cited for endangering his dog while driving down the highway Wednesday.



    The dog was precariously perched on the seat behind its owner, which is not only dangerous – but illegal.



    The Washington man was driving down Highway 3 in Kitsap County when a trooper spotted him and pulled the motorcycle over.



    The trooper also tweeted photos of the man and his dog, to warn others of the dangers.





    I'd better get serious on some options!

    I'll bet if that dog could talk we would hear another side of the story. Think of all the dogs in Washington that don't get to experience the joy of a ride on the TW. Maybe Georgie should write a letter to the editor telling what she thinks of that law.
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    I met a guy on a big Kawasaki cruiser who was on the last leg of a year-long, cross-country tour.

    His dog rode on a sheepskin strapped across his tank.

    If you're having fun, you're at risk of getting in trouble if you get caught. Pathetic society we have huh?

    Pretty typical. You better mind your P's and Q's when you cross the border!



    P.S. Love the car seat idea!

    Hmmm, interesting, your wife can legally ride behind you on the TW but Georgie can't. OK, makes sense to me.

    I was thinking the same thing. Would they pull me over when I have my 8-year old daughter on the back?



    Great photo of Georgie with the helmet and goggles!

    If I remember right. Here in WA you have to be over 5 years old and be able to touch the passenger foot pegs.

    Yep, she always bails just before I tip over!





    Also, unlike the rider who got a ticket, I'd never ride with Georgie on the back going that fast on a highway. I have gone on a paved road for a very short distance only to get from one point of trail to another and only go about 30mph. My trail riding with her on the back is usually only around 15-20 mph at most.
