Biker Basenji

Awhile ago I had mentioned that my husband and I had a Basenji that rode across Canada with us on a motorcycle. Someone (can't remember who) asked if I had a picture. I haven't found the ones from our tripp, but I did find one of her on the bike. I wanted to make sure that I posted a picture to prove I wasn't sh*tin' ya. She did ride across the country on that bike.

And,she may have been the only Basenji to show up at a National Specialty on a Harley! Practically drove right up to ringside because we were late - no, she didn't win.

AWESOME! OUTSTANDING! WICKED COOL! LOVE IT! LOVE IT A LOT!!!!!!!!

😁 That is just the coolest picture. Thanks for sharing that! I've had many bikes, still have two, so that just sits so well with me. Love it, love it, love it. 0_1604983043856_8b484afb-cdd3-4285-8dad-ce9dc40119e3-image.png

You say "no she didn't win"? Oh yes, she definitely WON! Great pic. Thanks for sharing.

Having said that, I hope you don't ride motorcycles anymore. Everyone we know who has done that has gotten seriously injured. And in no case was it their fault. The last one was a few weeks ago when a drunk driver went across two lanes and took our friend, who was making a left turn, completely. His knee is pulp, his shoulder is toast, and he has broken ribs. He's looking at months of rehab and will never get back to where he was before he accident.

My Kembe wore a “biker babe” pleather biker outfit one Halloween - black w/ the chains and red bandanna. We had a “50’s GREASE” theme for the family that year. Right now w/ my basenji experiencing some issues due to her age - your photo reminded me of happier times when Kembe was a young whipper-snapper and much more active - she’s now an old girl but still my baby! Put a smile on my face! Thanks for posting!

@donc :`( I'm sorry to hear about your friends tragic turn in life. My prayers are with them, you, and yours.

I fashioned those bike goggles out of swim goggles - those were in the days before you could actually buy goggles for a dog. She wore them quite well; lost a pair in NB, made up another pair in NS.

She was my first Basenji and she passed away at 18. Her goggles are now hanging over the corner of her picture that stands on a dresser.

No I don't ride anymore, but I sure would if I could, and I know a lot of people who still do. I am so sorry about your friend, but not everyone who rides dies or is seriously injured.
