I guess it depends on the trip. I met a couple in Mt. Vernon Il two weekends ago on our way to Tennessee on a Goldwing with a trailer. They were on their way home from a Massachusetts -Alaska -Massachusetts trip. They had all kind of gear for every environment and emergency in there, it was unbelievable. The wished they had more room to bring back souvenirs as they had to fed-ex them home.
The bad part is an old neighbor lost his wife in a construction zone when the trailer hit the uneven pavement, swung up and struck her in the back, knocking her off.
Two wheelin for the feelin.
