OK, OK... I know many of you bikers will pound on me for even considering trailering my Valkyrie anywhere.  But, it makes a lot of sense, if you live in Houston and want to spend some quality time with the SO in Colorado.  We get to have a great run up to Colorado in our truck, make better time, have good conversation, then when in Colorado, plenty of time to really enjoy motorcycle riding in the mountains.  And, as you can see in the photos, I also trailer my motorcycle trailer... the department of redundancy department, no?
