Setup

The Pillion Pooch is the ultimate motorcycle dog carrier. Suitable for carrying 1 or 2 dogs up to a total weight of 30kg (70lbs).

Developed and tested in the field over 6 continents, the Pillion Pooch is simply the safest way to take your dog on a motorcycle. It is designed to be narrower than the handlebars, so you will not be taken by surprise when you ride into a tight squeeze.

Internal Dimensions: Depth 39cm x Width 62cm x Height 55cm (Depth 15.5" x Width 24.5" x Height 21.5")

External Dimensions: Depth 45cm x Width 69cm x Height 70cm (Depth 18" x Width 27" x Height 27.5")

The complete unit weighs in at just under 15kg (35lbs).

Arrives in a kit with easy to build instructions.

No mounting hardware included as this is specific to the motorbike. Please consult your motorcycle and/or rear rack manufacturer to ensure they are sufficiently designed to hold the weight of the Pillion Pooch, dog(s) and any luggage you intend strapping within.

Mounting Instructions

The base of the Pillion Pooch is generically designed to attach to the bike via a rear rack. The mounting hardware required to fix the Pillion Pooch to your specific rear rack is not included as this hardware is very much dependent on the motorcycle.

For tubular racks a set of U-bolts will suffice. However, this results in a semi-permanent install where removal will take 10 - 15 minutes. A more practical solution where regular removal is required would be to use a quick release rack such as the Back Road Equipment rear slider rack or one of the Harley Davidson Tour-Pak Mounting Racks.

To install the Pillion Pooch, a few holes will need to be drilled to allow your mounting hardware to attach. See the "Unboxing and Installation Made Easy" video in the image gallery above for an indication of this installation. A competent DIY'er or handyman could conduct this installation however, your baby will be riding so we highly recommend a professional installation.

If you are in any way unsure whether your rack is compatible then get in contact with us and we'll provide assistance.

Please also consider the compatibility of your pannier system with the Pillion Pooch. Soft panniers and panniers with removable lids are all usable with the Pillion Pooch. It's possible that access to hinged panniers can be inhibited with the base of the Pillion Pooch.
