PostSubject: JELLYBEAN!   Sun Jun 14, 2015 10:17 pm

I decided this awesome pup deserves her very own topic thread. I know it's not GRiSO-related per se, but I have a GRiSO so I figure I should be given a little latitude. Besides, who doesn't love puppies? And some here have expressed interest in following her progress vis a vis learning to ride a motorcycle and eventually becoming Jellybean the Sidecar Queen. Jelly is one brave little girl. Eleven weeks old today and with a new/used California 1100 sitting in the garage awaiting its transformation into her royal chariot, I decided we'd better start practicing. I've rigged up a harness and a tank-bag-puppy-pouch that keeps her firmly lashed in and I've taken her out a few times, first just down the alley and then around the block. This evening we went out for a little longer ride, several times around the neighborhood and eventually up to 50mph on Airport Way. I wouldn't say she's in love with the idea just yet, but she's a trooper, no whining and no thrashing about, she settled right down and decided to go with the flow. Stay tuned for more...

I had the same 2001 Cali Stone previously, if you want to keep it a 2 wheeler I've got some hot set up tips that make it a real sweet ride. A dog box on the back should suffice.

Dogs don't belong on motorbikes.

All good Street [ unless she wees herself ] Shocked Laughing The roads here as so bad I would not attempt what you have even just with that short hop.

Cali looks good! I know nothing about dogs n bikes so looking forward to seeing the transformation. Think the sidecar platform will be a comfy place for JB as long as she can get ner nose in the breeze [ why do dogs do that ] see so many with their heads hanging out of car windows. You need to get her some 'doggles' to wear or at least shades?

No issue with the thread but I'm with Wayne. Dogs don't belong on a Solo. Outfit? Fine and ++ on the 'Doggles'.

My big lunkhead would love that. Gonna have to get a Ural rig for him. I doubt the stubborn bugger would wear the doggles though.

Doggles are on the way, for now she's hunkered down behind a big ol' windscreen. The sidecar won't be ready for a few weeks so we're just tootling around getting used to the idea and the rumble and growl of the Guzzi. It's a process, one step at a time. Eventually she'll have her very own sidecar and can travel with us wherever we decide to go.

So far so good. When she's riding in the tank bag she's wearing a harness and is securely held down so she can't climb out which means she also can't paw at the doggles. We're still in training with very short little rides to beaches close to home and she's doing just fine, not so much as a whimper. Pretty sure by the time the sidecar is done mid-August, she should be pretty comfortable with the whole process. We'll still take turns riding with her in the side hack for a while to make the transition, but she's a pretty adventurous pup and game for every challenge I've thrown at her so far.

At ten weeks old I thought I'd start training her to walk up a ramp. She didn't even flinch, walked straight to the top, turned around and walked back down. The look on her face tells you what she thought of my challenge, "Now what?"

When you finally get her in the sidecar, will you carry beaner?

G'day mate, thats Bloody great, id'e love to take my dog with me on the GRiSO. You won't be able to get on that bike without her once she gets to love it,probably end up with the odd scratch on your tank but i think it would be worth it in the long run, sounds like you's have a lot of good times ahead of you's, are you getting a side car for the GRiSO? All the best mate.

Wakey.
