The reason for my Toy Hauler

After a 23 year break to raise a family, I got back into riding again last year.
This is my current scooter, 2008 105th anniversary Road King Classic.

Very nice! I saw this model and color sitting at the HD in Brighton, Mi one year and I almost talked the wife into canceling the flight home and riding instead. Now I'm wishing we would have done it....{sigh} hind sight.

Enjoy!

So what kind of hauler did you get? Looks like a really stout bike. My buddies Sporster always felt heavier than my Yammy, but he says it's not. Gotta have a pretty solid floor for that, huh? Still trying to get me a deal on a new XLR, ought to be able to take the kids' crotch rockets along then too!

Thanks rthrbelsewhere. I really enjoy it.

Due to the max tow capacity of my TV, 6000 lbs., I was somewhat limited in my choices. I decided on the Greywolf 19rr and do not regret it one bit. The bike weighs in around 800 lbs and the trailer handles it with no problems.
The only problem, is the ramp. It's too steep and I will need to work another solution for it this winter. For now I just back up to a high spot before dropping the ramp. ~Cliff

Nice looking Road King, Cliff. We have an 08 Softail Custom that we travel with. Not going to show the wife your pic though because that seat looks wayyyyy to comfortable and she might decide she needs something like it... Enjoy your travels with it and keep the shiny side up.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. I appreciate it.
Now that I have the toy hauler, I think I may trade in for a softtail, since long hauls are no longer problem.
Dlitten, I would have to side with your wife on that issue. The stock seat was the first thing I couldn't wait to pull off of the bike.
That sundowner is so much better.
Ride safe guys. ~Cliff
