There you go! LOL.

It's so hard to desensatize a dog to something when you don't have access to that something very much. It was like that with Lyric and other dogs. There wasn't enough instances, not frequent enough, too few dogs to interact with. And he was reactive to them on leash primarily. Not aggressive once he would get to them. He most always ended up wanting to play, but he would scare the bejeezus out of me sometimes, the way he acted on a leash, acted very aggressive at first (embarrassing) except in class. Then he was all business and minded his Ps and Qs. LOL.

I'm so glad to have stumbled upon this post! I've been lurking on the forum for a while, but rarely post. My dog has recently started displaying this behavior as well and I haven't been sure how to 'retrain' him. In my case, too, it's the result of a lack of socialization around bikes. I was so conscientious of socializing him to people as a puppy, but I never thought about bikes! Thanks for the excellent advice, Kayla and Doberluv.

Oh great! I'm glad you found this thread. Do tell us how you go about getting your dog's behavior fixed up and keep us posted how he does.
