There are quite a few clever DIY dog carrier solutions and a few commercial options out there but nothing that met with our requirements for traveling with a big dog on an adventure motorcycle traveling on (and off) challenging Central American roads. So we created the K9 Moto Cockpit.


Since we started the on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws video series, we've received a lot of questions about the dog carrier that we built to travel with our 65lbs German Shepherd Moxie on Jess's BMW G650GS. So, in this video we share a bit about the design, evolution, and construction that ultimately produced the K9 Moto Cockpit.
