Why the Cockpit Design Is the Solution

It’s the motorcycle dog carrier that doesn’t carry her.

Schematic drawing of motorcycle dog carrier for large dogs

For motorcycles with a passenger seat, your dog’s heaviest bulk – the head and torso – rests directly on the pillion seat through a soft cushion. The Cockpit frame keeps them safe, comfortable, and securely in place.

For motorcycle without a passenger seat, we build the Cockpit with a full bottom baseplate.

This Simple, Elegant Design Has Clear Benefits:

Your motorcycle carries as much of the dog’s weight as possible
·
The carrier is lighter without a solid bottom and side
·
Less weight and lower mounting minimizes the effect on your ride dynamic
·
Your dog enjoys the ride the way you do but more safely

The Proof Is in the…

So, share the thrill of riding with your big dog is finally here. Just build it or buy it, mount it, and then enjoy the ride together!
