I have three pet gerbils I want to take on my ride from Washington down to Texas. Does anybody know if they should ride on the front or the rear of the bike and what kind of cage to pack them in? I am worried about them getting too much air and possibly dying. Anybody have the same problem?

I think that the main question here is "Why?". :rat:

If the question is why 3 gerbils, that, unfortunately is no longer true. I ran over one this very evening so now I have only two! Damn that reverse with no backup light.

I'd go with cryogenics here. Get some dry ice and one of those saddle bag coolers. Just make sure you pad them well in the bag. I bet those little legs break off pretty easy when frozen. Let us know how well they thaw out when you get there.

Hey, thanks for your suggestions guys, but I just got bad news. I went out to check on the remaining two and found out that they had taken their own lives. I think they might really have been lemmings. The pet shop owner played me I think. I will be looking into other riding partners for my future rides. RIP little buddies.

So, two more back-ups and your problem will have solved itself!!!

But the why was for why would you want to carry gerbils on vacation or do we REALLY want to know??? :22yikes:

I thought it funny that Hedo's avatar was the next post. What was that song about a hundred bottles of beer on the wall? One gerbil fell, then there were two gerbils..... :lol: :lol:

Mount a CT and put them inside...
Might as well give them a little exercise.

You may even gain back the MPG supposedly lost and they might help balance the tire. :)
