HE'LL TRADE HIS HOG TO GET HIS DOG : BIKER SEEKS LOST PET.

Byline: Deborah Adamson Daily News Staff Writer

Jeremiah Gerbracht, who won a court battle to let his dog ride on his motorcycle, cherishes the times when he and his Siberian husky used to roar down the street on his bike.

So when Lady Harley ran away from his Woodland Hills home Dec. 11, the semi-retired actor and animal trainer left no stone unturned trying to find her.

``I've done everything there is to do to find Lady Harley,'' he said. ``We've been on numerous interesting adventures together. And now, of course, she's on one without me and I miss her.''

``I don't care if it rains or shines. I am out there looking for Harley,'' Gerbracht, 56, added. ``I miss her. I really miss her.''

The 2-year-old, gray and white female husky slipped out a door left open by a tenant renting a room in his house. She carries an identification microchip between her shoulder blades.

But the beloved canine has failed to turn up, despite Gerbracht's tireless search and a $300 reward.

Now, so desperate is Gerbracht to get Harley back that he's willing to give up his hog for his dog.

Gerbracht has added to his reward his 1986 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, custom-fitted in leather and worth ``well into the five-figure bracket.''

Gerbracht and Harley first came to the public's attention in November 1995, when Gerbracht got a ticket for letting the dog ride on top of his bike's gas tank.

A police officer cited him under a section of the vehicle code that prohibits people from sitting on the part of a motor vehicle not intended for passengers.

Gerbracht - member of ABATE, a bikers rights group - fought the citation in court almost exactly a year ago, and won.

Municipal Court Judge Michelle R. Rosenblatt, after listening to two hours of testimony, ruled that the code pertains to humans and not dogs.
