    Yeah, that dresser could have been touring.

    Or, it could have been on the way to the shop.

    Or better yet, the front of that Furd is actually hooked to a tow truck, and never made it to the shop to drop off the bike.:laughabove:

    Iv'e got a friend who loads his HD dresser in the back of his truck and tours. When he returns there is 2-3000 additional miles on the truck. The bike usually has 2-4000 additional miles.:shocked:

    Go figure.

    :cool:

    Like I said, I was only poking a little fun at the H-D guys. :supergrin:

    There was a group of them (HDs) loaded on trailers but they didn't stop at the same gas station, or else I would have taken more incriminating photos.:rollsmiley:

    That's pretty interesting though. Most people I know (or heard of) that trailer put the miles on the car/truck/whatever, and maybe put 2-300 on their bike.

    I've gotta admit fnfalman, it's hard to notice the 'trailered' Harley with your bike taking the show! :supergrin: (I rarely notice things in the background anyways, except maybe hot chicks in bikinis!)

    It would be hard to scratch the tire that aggressively while cruising on I-10.;)

    But half of my bodily water weight were burned off by the 115-F temperature when I was riding through the Mojave desert.:shocked:

    Me and a buddy trailered our Harleys up to WI in 03 for the 100TH ann bash. Best thing we ever did. All types of bikes were all overheated and brokendown around the Chicago bypass, and the following Monday on the way home it poured non stop for 12 hours. We stayed in a cottage in Lake Geneva and rode into Milwaukee every day for the fun. Access to hot showers and clean clothes is nice. The only thing I missed was the cheesy patch for my coat, "I rode mine."
