If that is the bagger we have looked at them and yes she likes that back seat. But will the RT fit inside a HC381TH garage?

Iím afraid it would be a stretch and then the door wouldnít shut and you would tear up your new motorcycle, oh well. Maybe a Goldwing.

I mentioned the Gold Wing in earlier posts. Both the two wheel and three wheel versions cost way more than a fully tricked out Can Am. I'm getting older and ready for the 3 wheel version. Its going to be the Can Am. We also have a 24' enclosed trailer so there ya go......

Jim you will love the Can Am. They are fun and you feel safer than a motorcycle. I’ve see tho times this year where both riders would still be alive had they been on a Can Am. The first time a friend and I were on the Blueridge Parkway. A guy had hit a deer. The deer was laying on the road side the motorcycle in the ditch and the rider on a stretcher. We thought they were talking him to the hospital, no he was going to to morgue. Had he been on a Can Am I think he could have kept control The other time a friend was on Rt 460 a 4 lane highway and saw this. A woman got off the interstate headed west decided that was wrong made a u turn and bam. If he had been on a Can Am he may been able to slow down enough to avoid hitting her. The Can Ams have ABS which would have been a big help.
There is a series of videos that I can highly recommend on motorcycle safety, MCrider. Look it up. You will learn a lot about motorcycle safety.

I had an 08 when they first came out & fell in love with it right away, it really is a great ride. Might get another one this year if things work out & we get some time to use it. We did solve the fitment problem, we bought a dedicated toy hauler for the trips we need multiple toys on.

I seriously went out last year to buy a Can AM to tow behind our Class A and ended up coming home with this. Put the front windshield down it feels almost the same. Now we keep our 5er and truck at the RV resort all summer and drive the Jeep back and forth with a lot of off road in between. Love those Can Am's though.

I bought it and modded it to tow behind our Class A at the time I would have bought a Side by side but they are not legal at hiway speeds. We spend much of our time while camping exploring the back country via the forest service roads and trails. Last year we did over 1500 miles of dirt roads and trails and discovered so many beautiful places. Unfortunately a 1-ton 4x4 tow vehicle is not very trail friendly so wife will follow in the Wrangler.

This is our LI NY version, actually bought it so we could take the dog with us & not miss being on the bikes.

I have a Textron Prowler Pro XL.

It's like a geriatric golf cart with a dump bed in the back. For use on the ranch of course.🤠

I have resisted buying a side by side for the farm. I would use it instead of walking and I need to walk.

Just checked camp site availability at a off road riding area in Pa, AOAA & its pretty much booked solid the next 2 months. Figured to take the s x s & bikes & spend a few days camping & riding, apparently a lot of people thought so too. Great riding area for any one looking in that area, very well organized.

AOAA is a nice place to ride, has primitive trailer sites & some really good trails. They also have jeep & single track trails & they are pet friendly.

Our Can Am on the Alpine Loop out of Silverton, CO. That is an amazing trail. Takes all day at a fairly good pace. Sorry picture is sideways. Its a wicked machine. Maverick X3 Turbo. 60+ top end with 22" of shock travel. We run a lot here in the New Mexico desert and it just eats it up.

Boy that is one smart looking JK. Is that a 20? We have a 2019 JK Sahara w/8speed auto. We love it. Mine looks nothing like yours. its just a jeep.

it is a 2018 JL Sahara but it took another $15K to get to where is is in those pics. We love to explore while camping we used to tow behind the Class A but now We have a dedicated camping place in Eastern Washington on Lake Chelan where we leave the 5er in the summers then do a 1-2 side trips, but our Wrangler goes every where when camping. We did more than 1200 miles of Forest service roads and trails last year camping, the Wrangler took us to so many amazing places and views.

I had a funny feeling that I was going to mess up. The new bodys are JL's not JK's. Sorry I keep messing that up. But I still love yours.

We have a 2006 BMW K1200LT. It's a little older but still rides nice, plus it has all the amenities the DW likes like heated seats, heated backrest, arm rests and passenger floorboards. No long trips so it is just for tooling around.
