The K9 Moto Cockpit motorcycle dog carrier is for sharing the thrill of the ride with your large or medium dog.
The design places your dog in a laying position to keep the weight low, secure, and connected to the bike – somewhere between a pillion and a duffel bag.
We follow a series of pre-build steps to
- Determine the appropriate size for your dog,
- Identify the best mounting setup for your specific motorcycle, and
- Collect the necessary measurements for positioning and mounting your Cockpit.
The motorcycle dog carrier pre-build process involves about 30-60 minutes of your time and we are in close contact throughout to answer questions and ensure accuracy.

How It Works
We want to help dog-loving motorcyclists to ride safely with their large or medium dog in a way that looks great and enhances the thrill of the ride.
Once you complete the checkout, we create a page at goruffly.com for your custom Cockpit build project.
The page provides specific information and instructions for completing each step of the pre-build process.
This is how the pre-build process goes:
- You take a set of photos of your dog and motorcycle
- We mark up 2-3 photos to identify the 15-20 measurements that we need.
- You complete the Measurements Worksheet by inserting the required measurements.
- We draft 2-3 mounting diagrams to guide the custom build and mounting.
- You double-check the measurements in the Mounting Diagram Worksheet.
- Once you have verified the measurements, we begin your build.
- The pre-build process generally takes 1-2 weeks depending on your availability.
- The build takes 3-5 days depending on the complexity of the mounting.
- Painting takes about 5 days.
- Upholstery takes 8-10 days.
The exact duration of the build depends can vary depending on order volume. Please read the Disclaimer before purchase.
