Default Exercising the mutts with a motorcycle.

Oh it's fun. The dogs get a great cardio out of it too.

Bit about the bike. It's a KTM 300cc 2-stroke. For those not in the know that's roughly 50 horsepower on a 200 pound bike, about the same power to weight ratio as a modern 600cc street sport-bike. So it's very very fast. I can smoke the dogs on the straight bits no problem, but I have to slow down a lot more to make hard turns, so the mutts can catch up. I do about 5 laps of the property at full tilt after some warm ups, and the dogs duly chase. I don't know what drive I'm tapping into with them chasing me, but they sure dig it. They both seem super relaxed and calm after a good chase session.
