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.

Never cook bacon while naked.

LOL, my bf is going to be disappointed when I ask him to play with the dog next time he gets out the BMW S1000RR out for a ride

I used to run mine with the 4 wheeler back in the day. (Honda 300ex) I had to be careful if I wasn't running full out as she would run in front of me.

That's a lot of bike. I rode a similarly powered GSXR(track toy) and I won't be doing that anytime soon again. 193 hp in a bike that's just a smidge over 450 pounds is borderline silly, awesome but still a bit on the silly side of things.
