Tonopah, NV., and a Florida license plate frame. Dunno...it's also a GT but it has the rectangular RS mirrors instead of the mickey-mouse ones (that didn't hit the bigger "comfort" shield on lock-to-lock turns on the GT). Rider wants visibilty, so he must do more than pose with the bike.
Might be on it's way to a new home, too.

I've had mine in a trailer when going to the track. It's easier for me to get the bike prep'ed at home for one thing (like removing the mirrors and fixing the lights), and second, if I bin it, there are a lot more people that can drive a trailer with a bike in it home for me than can ride the bike back (if conditions permitted) if I wasn't capable.

And, yes, I agree with your original premise ... it should be ridden instead. Sometimes, though, you can't always get what you want.

That is why my trailer is enclosed

It is interesting that they have a 2-up Motoman on the rear fender - something we created for the BMWLT community back when it was on an Egroups listserver.

Well it did look well ridden. I'm guessing a move for the owner prompted the trailer use.
I needed to get going and couldn't wait around to find out.

I just got back from a week long trip up to Oregon. Didn't attend the MOA Rally, but I did see quite a few Beemers both on the way up and back. And yes, even one or two on trailers . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Ex Harley-Sturgis riders that have moved up, but still missing the point.

The outfit in the picture belongs to Tim (Tallman on the BMW Sporttouring board)

He came out to the BMW Sporttouring UnRally in Topaz lake NV. Trust me, Tim is a rider.

Indeed Tim is a serious rider (and friend of mine,) but he and his wife wanted to be able to maximize play time out here in the Sierra Nevadas, so they drove the truck out and rode while here. Two up takes longer than taking shifts, plus that came in very handy when Tim and I drove down to get a stranded rider (brakes). Bonus!!!
