I often think the same when I see trikes with trailers.

Especially when you have an option like a convertible that will pretty much provide the same type of driving experience.

They can un-ass that shit when they get where they're going and they're on two wheels again.
Their rants sound like a retarded jihadist braying medieval hokum, about as profound as explosive diarrhea but without its charm.

I’m with the OP. When I am traveling cross country on a bike, I want to pack as light as possible and not deal with all that shit, it makes traveling by bike a huge hassle when it’s loaded down. If I know where I’m going, I’ll usually ship stuff ahead to my destination and the ship it back home, or I’ll just buy new stuff as I need it on the trip.

I find most people bring way too much stuff “just in case they need it” and then never actually do.

When we go on an overnight or weekend trip we often have enough to pack the back of the Cayenne.

Yeah my wife likes to be prepared for any potential situation so an impromptu trip on two wheels probably won't fly!

the older I get, the more comfortable I want to be..........

I don't give a shit about gas mileage any more.

A Carrera is more comfortable than a Harley and an F 250 Superduty Crew cab is more comfortable than a Carrera......

No one would have believed the story. Hell, I couldn't have conjured it up on my most wistful day. While there is no accounting for my outrageous good fortune, it turns out, discipline IS its own reward!
BTW, I am delighted to be "chilling" :)

Yes, I consider our S2000 like a sportbike with seatbelts, airbags, a trunk plus a top that goes up in 6 seconds if the weather turns.
