Ever get chased by a dog on your bike?

I have been.

This guy - another level.

Is this old?

Sheesh, Internet Time is so damn fast I can't tell if this video happened yesterday or in 1999.

On a triple Kawi 500 back in the 80’s! Rounded a slow corner and there he was. When I yanked the throttle I left him in a cloud of blue smoke as the angry howl of the two stroke shrieked it’s laughter in the dogs face as I wheelie’d away. It was actually pretty fun.
The time before that Was on a 125 and was not as fun...

Funny this should come up. The other day on the way to work an older gentleman was walking his small dog down the shoulder. As I passed the dog lunged at me out into traffic. Took the guy by surprise as the leash went taut and almost came out of his hand. Had I been on the right side of the lane the dog may have gotten my foot.

My only other interaction with a dog was at a stoplight in heavy traffic. As I came to a stop in a line of cars I heard some growling to my right. I looked up the 10 or 12 foot tall embankment to see a large pitbull had run up to the edge and was clearly displeased. I rolled forward a foot or so and the dog started down the embankment and stopped when I did. When the light turned green, I let the cars ahead go to generate some space. As I took off in a hurry the dog followed. It made it to the street and stopped before running out into traffic as I rode away. For a few moments there I wasn't sure if I was gonna become a chew toy or not.

Yes, way back when I was a new rider on a Honda 90S, I would ride through a residential neighborhood on the way home from work...and would be met by a large German Shepard who would chase and nip at my heel as i rode by. Pretty scary for a new rider.

After a couple of weeks, I was a lot more comfortable and confident on my new bike, and ready to challenge the beast. The next time I rode down his street, he was in his regular place but this time I downshifted and accelerated, rode down the center lane, and when he came out to chase me I served in to meet him and kicked him the head as hard as I could with my right leg. It probably was not the best decision I ever made because my foot hurt like hell for a couple of hours.

I did manage to roll him on the pavement and Iím guessing his head hurt as much as my foot. He continued to chase me after that but never got within 10 feet of my bike.

Actually hit a dog twice, both while riding off pavement. One of them knocked me down and the other caused quite a wobble.

There's this odd place on WA-14, just East of the Bonneville dam. A long paved area below grade between the highway and the river, and I happened to ride in there because I wanted to turn around, and rather than do a Uey on the highway I thought I'd indulge my curiosity. It's full of trailers and temporary shelters, the odd barrel fire and there's a squatter feel to the place. Got lots of slack-jawed stares, as if they'd never seen a motorcycle or even a human from planet Earth before, it was totally bizarre. Anyway, a medium-small dog chased me barking yapping on the way out, didn't have much of a chance as its legs weren't long. I confess I kind of hoped it'd run out onto the freeway after me and I sort of slowed down to encourage it.

Holy jumpin jehosefats, Batman. That's frickin scary as shit !!! Yes, I've been chased by dogs on both motorcycles and bicycles. Hit a dog up on Skyline in PDX about 10 years ago, was chased by and bitten by a dog whilst pedaling out by Scotts Mills. Fuckin dog owners. dog that bit me jumped his fence, and the dog I hit was out with his "partner" strollin across Skyline while his "owner" stood at the edge of the road watching the whole thing. What a doosh-canoe.
