When ya buy a car ya don't buy a tow truck to go with it, do ya?
Woulda been much better off buyin' some tools and investing in some knowledge about repairin' bikes.
I live in NYC area. I do an annual trip to Maine from Long Island NY. When I ride back from Maine (one day) after 8 hours of riding to get to the George Washington Bridge on Sunday evening, it takes another 2-3 hours of bumper to bumper traffic to get home (30 miles). These are some of the busiest most dangerous roads in the US. If you have never been to this area, a google search of George Washington Bridge and the Cross Bronx Expressway will reveal the issue. Then add to that the Long Island Expressway or Northern State Parkway. To me this is the most dangerous part of any trip, after 8+ hours of riding, then dealing with bumper to bumper traffic in an impatient NYC area. My life is worth more than the most expensive trailer out there.
For this trip, I trailer to my friends house in mainland NY (one hour north of NYC) and leave from there. When I return, I go to his house and load up the bike for the traffic back (the traffic starts at his exit of the NY Thruway and continues to my exit in Long Island. Sundays are the worst.
Generally, riding in the Long Island area isn't the best, I stick to around town, and early mornings before cagers are around. When I ride to work, I leave before most people, and return home in the HOV lane.
I have also used my trailer for dropping my bike off at shops. In the year I have had it, I dropped it off for Dyno tuning, Steering Neck bearing replacement (all balls), and radiator flushing, the rest of the work I have done myself.
I also am not a fan of loading motorcycles in the back of pickup trucks. Getting a 800+lbs bike up 4 ft is dangerous.
And lastly, I use the trailer for other things than the motorcycle. This is why I went with a 12 ft trailer over a smaller 10 ft. With a mounted chock, I want to be able to fit 8 ft pieces of plywood/sheetrock. But now I have decided to get a removable chock, so it isn't as much of a big deal.
I would never knock someone with a trailer and a bike.
By the way I got my VTX 6/2018 it is now 8/2019 I have driven 12k miles in this year and 2 months. I would say I ride the bike... This includes the bike being put away for 4 months during the winter
