easy for you to say your the alpha dog
You have been paying attention .
I was riding my VFR minding my own business when a dog bolted out from between two parked cars and ran headlong into my front wheel wiping me out. The dog yelped and ran off. The bike was scuffed but rideable til a few months later when some retard in a cage pulled out in front of me and totalled it. Thats when I got the message and bought my @ !
A local bloke bought my old VFR off the insurance company and made this:
Not my cup of tea!
Wouldn't like to try a corner on that, looks like tip-over happy hour!

Old man yeti once did something I considered rather odd at the time but find hillarious now. This one dog always used to run out at people and bite (more nip than full blown bite really) their legs, well it picked on the wrong guy. he simply detached it from his leg picked it up and bit it back! right in the middle of its back!! it ran off howling!! makes me wanna wee just thinking about it again!!
It never ran out and bit people again!
Not sure if I'd be game but seemed to be a good strategy. Dogs don't seem to expect it!

well i had a mutt run out of a filling station in front of me on my FS1E in the first week i was on the road , it saw a dog in a car and followed it out, never saw it coming just charged right into me, ended up going over the handelbars and bike on top of dog, it got petrol on it self which it licked off and made itself sick, owners repaired bike and became friends after, it was the nearest filling station to where i worked,used to help out part time on the forecourt as well, the place is now a chinky takeaway, also used to be chased by a terrier til it got too close to a steel toecapped boot when i upgraded to a 250, and had a hound run out in font of me went right over it a 60 mph on the old rd 250 and stayed on, it was just lying in the road picked it up and chucked it on the verge, it was gone the next day so maybe it was ust knocked out or the huntsman found it
I tie steaks to my boots. Sure, you get odd looks from other drivers but it keeps the little blighters from scratching my expensive boots. Well worth it.
In Turkey I got chased at least a mile by some slavering brute(a Kangal I'm told) dragging the chain still attached to its neck. I was on a dirt road so couldn't out run him. I was holding onto my bars with one hand while smashing him in the face with a D-lock with the other. Afterwards I thought the price of the rabies jabs I had was probably worth it.
