We ride also. I have a '95 Ultra Classic and an '08 Heritage Softtail. Both bought brand new and both will be with me til I can't ride anymore, and then I may convert them into trikes so I can still ride.

Back when I got my motorcycle lic in FL and started riding my mother says "Gee Christine, since you've started riding I've noticed that more people are starting to ride too." My response to her was "No mom, it's not that more are starting to ride, it's only cause I am riding that you are noticing more people riding."

It's probably about the same thing here. If you don't ride or drive a certain make or model then you don't notice those ones as much.

I really asked this on another thread as a joke, it just looked like all everyone did was hauls Harley's around.

They're strong but hauling a DP behind one is a stretch.

I've owned most brands and just happen to be on a Harley again (my 4th). One of the big jokes is seeing a Harley on a trailer and thinking that the owner is taking it out for a spin!

I was at the very first Killington Classic in Vermont and the parking lot was a sea of trailers. I always thought it odd when I saw a Vermont plate on a trailer at a gathering in Vermont. But hey, to each his or her own. If they are enjoying life then good for them.

Not all of us think that a 3k mile week is a good idea. Hell, my longest day was only 750 miles and I know guys that have completed the Iron Butt 100 CCC Insanity run. And John Ryan (RIP) was a member of my club. He did the Prudoh Bay Alaska to Key West Florida run in around 88 hours.

Nope never had one. I have a 02 Honda Valkyrie bought new and it will be around when I'm gone.It has 160000 miles on it with no major repairs and I'm hoping for another 150000 before I'm finished.At 71 I think another 10 years.

While I don't have the available riding time to justify owning one now, every year I decide what part of the country I would like to see while riding. I fly to the closest location that has a rental outlet and rent an Electra Glide/Ultra and go for a 10 - 14 day ride. This last Sept. I rode from Manchester, New Hampshire to Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal and back down through New England. One of my most memorable trips was an early Sept. departure. We rode from Salt Lake City up to West Yellowstone. We had the wonderful experience of riding through the park after the first snowfall in Yellowstone (6 inches dumped while we ate breakfast and then bright sunny, blue skies and clear roads after the clouds lifted as we finished up breakfast). IMHO there is no better way to experience Yellowstone than from the seat of a motorcycle.

Not since I rode a friends flathead flattrack racer back in the 60's sometime.
I started riding on a brand new '63 Honda when in high school. The next year I bought a slightly used BMW R-60 (paid $900 for it) with the old Earles forks from my friend with the flattrack bike.

we haul our Harley when we travel. We are fulltimers and hauling it is about our only option to take the bike along. Once we are set up we ride, ride and ride some more! Spent the summer in the Black Hills and loved the riding there .... had a blast!
So just seeing a Harley behind a motorhome, in a toy hauler or being towed by a pick up doesn't mean the owner doesn't ride just like seeing someone on a Gold Wing doesn't mean the they are old, rich and grumpy, a common misconception by others. I rode Goldwings for over 20 years, wore out 3 of them in that time, got my first one when I was in my 30's and still have many great friends riding Goldwings.
I'm on my second Harley now and still loving life on two wheels.

Our currant stable has a Yamaha Royal Star Venture, Kawasaki VN1500, and a Can-Am Spyder RT. You will still see a trailer behind our RV at times with a bike on it. I used to be a real snob about not wanting the bike to be seen on a trailer, but have come to realize that there are times I need the house where we are going. We do plan on doing a trip hitting all the lower 48 on the Spyder starting next spring so I guess we still count as riders.
