Is it okay for a pet to ride on a motorcycle without a carrier? Take this quiz to learn what you need to know about traveling on a motorcycle with your pet.
A sturdy, mountable pet carrier is the best option.
Avoid any sharp objects or screws on the inside of the pet carrier.
At low speeds, such as during a parade, a carrier bag attached to the motorcycle may be acceptable. This type of carrier may give your pet some freedom of movement.
It is important to put safety first. The coolest looking carrier may not be the safest.
If you do not have appropriate rain gear for your pet, pull over and wait for the storm to pass.
Take a few practice rides so you and your pet can get used to the new carrier.
Animals may have too much freedom of movement with this type of carrier and interfere with your driving.
A carrier which straps to your chest may get too hot and uncomfortable to wear.
Consult with your veterinarian about whether your pet is healthy enough for motorcycle travel.
Remember to bring a leash and bags to clean up pet waste.
