Man Takes Three-Wheeled Motorcycle, Tiny Dog for Afternoon Ride

January 18, 2011

Torrance, CA—While a school shooting at nearby Gardena High School attracted the attention of many Los Angeles residents Tuesday afternoon, an indifferent Paul Gibson decided to take his Can-Am Spyder and his terrier Sparkles for a sunny afternoon ride.

“I knew that traffic would be good since most people would probably be glued their TV’s to see if the police would get the shooter from that school thing,” said Gibson.  “So I strapped on my Jeep (wearable dog carrier) and decided to take Sparkles for a little ride.

While Gibson’s traffic-free trip was mostly uneventful, he and Sparkles did attract some attention from a few children in the back of a VW Wagon when stopping at a local AmPm station for refueling.

“They must have thought it was pretty cool to see me and Sparkles roll into the station on my Spyder,” said Gibson.  “They were pointing and smiling.  I am sure they never saw a dog on a motorcycle before.”
