Guess what followed me home on Sunday?

After making the "mistake" of test riding a GT in April and deciding that I absolutely had to have one, my two month quest is now over:

Congratulations, great looking bike! What's it doing on a trailer? lol just kidding

On my way to Pismo this year I had my bike on a trailer behind my motorhome. Saw a group of BMW riders at a rest stop. When I walked by we started chatting, the first question they asked was why is that bike on a trailer? I told them my wife doesn't drive the motorhome and I wasn't going on vacation without the bike.

I totally agree on trailering being the worst way to get a street bike from Point A to Point B.

When I used to live in Seattle and getting to the airport was relatively easy my preferred MO was to do a fly-n-ride (I've done 8 of them around the country and also done a ride-n-sell-n-fly-home) but I live in the boonies now and getting to the airport is a major PITA.

Beautiful!

Going to be a little more difficult to convince your "mom" - this will take more than a little food and water and walking... pssssst - and a whole lotta$$

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

When you said "followed" I didn't think you meant it literally! Congrats!
