Just being curious...does anyone know the reason why dogs like 2 chase motorcycles? Is there a scientific reason for it or do they think its just another big dog? Ive been chased by dogs many times when i go out riding in the farm lands. Sometimes in residential areas. Im pretty sure some of u had this happen b4. Its something that im really curious about. Anyone got an answer?:confused

Not sure, but I do know that a hard boot usually makes the dog fuck off. Just don't crash your bike trying to kick it.

Maybe it's the noise that motorcycle makes that stimulates dogs. Activates their "I'm going to chase this biker" senses.

I don't know !!!!

Dogs have a built in " Sissy meter " .

If your a level 6 or more Sissy which is just above a " Dandy Boy " there Alpha dog switch in there brain flips and they chase you away.

If you don't have a bunch of sandwiches in your pockets then we'll have to presume the dogs figure you are a deer (no brown riding gear, or antlers on your helmet?), they're going to chase you down and eat you.

Don't bother trying to kick them, it just makes the chase more fun, and can throw you off balance. If you see them coming, wait and watch. You'll see them lining you up. As soon as the dog starts for where you're going to be, aim the bike for him and speed up. This wrecks his trajectory. Just like a goalie coming out of the crease. Don't take this as a suggestion to run them over.

I had a girlfriend who's dog would only growl at bikers. If you showed up on a bike, the dog would growl at you - anyone else was fine.

It's their natural 'prey drive'...same thing as squirells,cats, etc.

i think its a combination of the helmet, gear, bike and noise. I dont think they recognize us as humans with the helmet on. Must look like a big scary fast moving alien.

They may look at it as trying to herd the bike, like they would sheep .... who knows.

Diesel at 5th gear is just a tiny nut; gets very disappointed if you dont turn the bike on.

Yes. It's because their owners are too stupid to put them on a leash.

dogs chase bikes, and cars because in their minds they are protecting their turf. you show up, the fokkers bark and snap, and you drive away. in their mind they have won, and protected their turf. same goes for the postman, everyday they drop off mail to the dog's place, the dog freaks out, and ''scares'' the mean old postman away. i think the owners of such animals need a swift kick in the balls for not , curbing this behaviour. its dangerous for both riders , and the dogs.:2cents
