There are quite a lot of bikers out there that want to take their dog with them when riding their motorcycle. Some of them have dogs small enough to take along in a tank bagAn animal (dog) on a motorcycle or even top caseAn animal (dog) on a motorcycle, while others have dogs that will remain in place behind themAn animal (dog) on a motorcycle (but it's dangerous for everyone).

Obviously the best way of transporting your dog with you on your motorcycle is in a sidecarAerodynamic Motorcycle Sidecar, but not everyone wants to have a sidecar. So here's the next best option, the canine motorcycle pod called Dog Saucer Open Dog Saucer link in a new window.

It's called Dog Saucer because it does look like a flying saucer, lights and all. It's currently a Kickstarter Open Kickstarter link in a new window project, so they are looking for funding, quite a lot actually. In fact, trying to get $600,000 is way too much for such a project, but it's cute anyway.

The Dog Saucer is a trailer that hitches behind your motorcycle, and not only allows you to transport your favorite pet with you, but it is comfortable for the pooch. There's standing room and a clear bubble so your dog can enjoy the same sights you are enjoying.

There's even place for drinks and food. The only thing you need is some way for the dog to say that it's time to pull over next to a tree or fire hydrant.

The pod is equipped with lights and plenty of space. But even a dog lover like me would balk at the cost.

The basic unit will cost as much as a small (Chinese knock-off) motorcycle, US$4,000 while the fully loaded one will set you back US$6,000. But then there are people out there who are more dog crazy than me.

It's not the first such project, but it's interesting. See the related article below for other ones.

Below is a video of the project:

Many of us bikers love dogs, and wouldn't think of going somewhere without the pooch. But often it's not easy, since they don't always sit still behind you. So you end up buying a trailer for your motorcycle. But trailers are boring.... unless you make this ultimate motorcycle dog-house-trailer.
