This is how I would like to do it. Got home this afternoon and this rig was parked on my street. Nice, especially with a heat index of 107 degrees.

I have to say, these things don't look very good from that down and under angle! Personally, I'd prefer "she" drive the motor home following me on the RG .... if I had a motor home .... or a "she"!

Not sure why the plastic is over the mirrors, but it'll beat the hell outta the paint.
I will say that's a nice way to travel though!

No clue what a lift like that costs but I'm guessing it's pretty pricey. Sure would be fun to borrow that whole rig for about a year. I had some thoughts about doing something like that, on a smaller scale, but then the reality of what giving away half of everything I owned, including all retirement funds, hit home and I realized I was on a "6 year old Chrysler minivan and a Vespa" budget!

We had a 1998 33' Class A Itasca Suncruiser with 454 , bought used in '09 , with only 27000 miles on it , cost less than my RG did .. Sold about two years later , used twice , cost over $1500 a year to keep plates and insurance on it . Would love another one , they are extremely nice and even more expensive to keep up if you work for a living .. Someone in N Georgia paid $77000 for it new , same one new now is close to $150,000 .. That's a diesel pusher with the RG , looks kinda like the Winnebago or Itasca , they are close to $350,000 new ..

Those bike lifts are pretty spendy ..

I'd ride too ..

A friend of mine had a similar rig with a big trailer. He offered me space for the MA-Sturgis run. I told him that I was riding. He thought that I was nuts, and I felt the same about him. To each his own.

It all depends where you are in life, sometimes the body gets to the point that it can't handle long rides, so towing or hauling become a reality.

Best way to go, Ride sure, but hell plenty of riding once there and well hell, I'm more focused on partying but, to have a place to stay that nice in Sturgis that don't cost a fortune "priceless".

Also, over 1300 miles from my house. 19 hour ride. this is one way.

Probably covering the controls like they recommend when washing.

I am hauling a couple sport bikes out to the PNW because of limited vacation time, and my riding bud can't handle that long of a ride. With both of us sharing the driving, we can get there in half the time and not need an oil change and new tires when we get there.
