You are right--there are legions of hardcore Harley riders out there. Let's hope their numbers grow even higher, because trailering is against everything motorcycling stands for. I told a HD rider friend of mine how I rode to Bike Week last year from NYC and froze my ass off, and he said, "that's what I have the trailer for." But then again he had some freaky chopper whose rides are probably measured in hours, not days, so I guess it makes sense. Ride on.
