FWIW, I am a motorcycle rider. My steel horse is an '81 Honda.

Firstly, I don't think survival in a crash is likely, but is possible depending on the severity of the impact. A rider wearing full helmet, armor jacket/pants/gloves and steel toe boots only has about a 50/50 chance of survival. Even then the protective gear will only minimize the damage. A dog in a cage wearing doggles will have low surviveability.

Secondly, it is critical for the "passenger" to remain in thier seat. A passenger bouncing around will alter the handling of the bike. So, the cage serves the purpose of keeping the animal in the consant location and not bouncing about.

Thirdly, the owner and the dog have a good bond. I commend the owner for being willing to create a riding option for his dog. Now, they can travel together and enjoy the world together.

Personally, I would have taken a different approach. But my dog isn't large by any means. He is just a 14 lb mini-schnauzer.
