This past summer was my first adventure with a trailer. It was magnificent!!!!! Doubled up, loaded trailer, I had 3 single up HD's fly past me on a straight-a-way and they clamped down hard entering the first turn into a number of switchbacks. I hung with them and if anything at timesthey were slowingme up. I had the feeling they were trying to distance me, but that wasn't happening. 1/2 hour later as they were turning off, one yelled "hell of a ride" and a thumbs up wave.
We pulled into a campsite, popped open the trailer and pulled out a couple of frosty ones from the cooler that had a block of ice in it. (A bag of ice would last a couple of hours, a block lasts 2 days) Pulled out a lawn chair, sat down with a nice cigar, a beer, and a bottle of scotch. Now that the edge was off, pulled out the pump, plugged it into the cigarette lighter and blew up the double size air matress, as What's her name and I threw up our 5 man tent. (prior to the trailer we threw up the 3 man tent with those skinny little blue foamy matress pads and no pillows)
We climbed through a lot of Mountains and took a lot of off the track by-ways. I'd say for the most part......I didn't even know I was pulling anything behind me. Of course we would hit the Interstates too and travelled at par with the rest of the zoomers.
The trailer gave us more freedom and substantially more luxury and comfort. Even when we would hit the odd major bump and I could see the trailer airborne behind me, It didn't affect the handling. That trailer would land and assume its position right behind me where it's supposed to be. Plus, the trailer doubles as an oversized mojo bag.
