Laugh Not trailer shy.

I'm in Wilmington, NC and enjoy trips to various parts of the Blue Ridge.
It has simply become BORING to ride thru the coastal plain of NC to get to
the mountains some 5 to 7 hr (if non-stop) and mostly slab. I just won't do it anymore. I've had lots of fun before and this is not it!

A handy trailer is my fav for this. It also expands camping opportunities with
a large cooler and some chairs. When at destination, the bike is lite and handy and it feels like a vacation to ride.

Too often I have met long distance riders moving so swiftly thru the areas that I really enjoy that they sadly miss some of the better rural roads and great sites off the BRP.

Don't discount trailering to make long distance tolerable!
