I'm not sure what to make of this story. Trailer queens in the trailer version of a burka. All boxed in so no one can admire the beauty of the 'Ride" being hauled pell-mell across the country.
Kinda gives 'Sport Touring' a new meaning.
I have some acquaintances who do the same with their bikes going to the Bear Tooth Rally. Much as I hate the boring miles on the Interstate I just don't seee the point of not riding.
Do you give an award for long distance trailering at these exclusive ST get togethers?


Why is it that 'Stupid' stands out so well?

How would you suggest taking both an RT and a dirt bike from Texas to Torrey?

Don't forget the mountain bike. Torrey is a great place to ride a bicycle.

Oh, and BTW, that "trailer queen" RT has 144,000 miles on it, and will be ridden to the UN

Whip, what was the diagnosis. Of the thumb/wrist, not the riding skill set.

Could'a been a lot worse; you could'a been Twisties.
