Interesting on my solo long distance trips it seamed to be bikers who looked at my small truck camper the most longingly.

As I have gotten older a nice bed and a convenient clean toilet have moved higher on my priority list.

I started with a bedroll and a Panhead, that being said, I really like my TC for travel now. My bones dont like the ground much anymore, although one of those motorcycle towable pop-ups might be fun.

OK, OK I got older too....I don't think I could do it today but still have the HD. Always thinking of getting a smaller bike and taking it with me but, my other half thinks the Harley is too comfortable to trade down.

It is worth our while to stop by these stores and let them know that we will go on down the road to another store because they and/or their city will not allow ONP. I will spend my time and money in places that are RV friendly and will take a little time to let those who are not know why I am not spending time or money at their place.

Keep the HD and trailer it with like we do for summer rides and exploring.

Kowboy I was thinking of an enclosed trailer with a foot higher (for RC airplanes) and a 7 x 12 or 14 Vee nose for the bike. But we do not want to go back to trailering at this time. My wife likes to make quick U turns to shop....hehehe

If you get one for snowmobiles you can ride in and ride out.

Interesting info or assumptions about why. Any firsthand knowledge of why?
I came across a town with that rule last weekend.
Knowing the area has a huge meth, homeless, unemployed, and gang presence drove my first assumption about why.
I imagine each city has its own reasons, some in common with others.
Going to ask my cg owner on my next visit.

Thinking about selling my Harley and picking up something more nimble and lightweight like a dual purpose 250 to haul around on one of those sideways m/c hitches, but then I took it out today... and it is just too much fun!

Saw one of those last year, on a coach. They had a HD Glide loaded on it when they left. I was on the back of a Class 'A'. But I'm guessing that it cost as much as the bike. All hydraulic operation, kind of like a Tommy Lift.
