The same thing happens in the car world.
I have two thoughts. Ok three.
1: of the people who trailer to outside events, the ones I respect, are the ones who will unload in the middle of every thing and then go park the tow rig.
2: trailers are for racecars or junk
3: if you see my ride on a trailer, its junk or someone stole it.
Now, where's my trailer.

anim-cheers1 I have trailered to NGW events when there has been the time crunch, and trailering gets me somewhere faster. Also, a couple of years ago right after my accident, I do not know if I could have done 4-500 mile days to get somewhere. But I do not hide the trailer

My 78 is not my choice to ride long distance. But it would be fun up there in the Hills.

Spent some time in the Black Hills last July, trailered my 1800 and my wife's Spider. Camped in our little RV and rode about 500 miles around the Sturgis area and another 400 or so up near the Minnesota North Dakota border. Didn't feel a bit guilty about using a trailer.
Bikes at present:
80 GL1100 Interstate: Now a Cafe Racer called DRAGON WING.
81 GL1100 collecting dust with about 300,000 miles, known as BLACK BEAUTY
2008 (I think) GL1800 Nice bike but as exciting as the family sedan!
76 GL1100 yes, 1100 with 1000 heads and cams, being customized
A fleet of parts bikes awaiting resuscitation or customization or abandonment :IDTS:

And you shouldnt.
There are many legitimate reasons to use a trailer.
I was speaking tongue in cheek earlier. Mostly.
I really do have a low opinion of those who trailer then pretend ride or drive long distances to shows or gatherings.
But why not use an rv and a motorcycle on the same trip?

Was thinking the same thing. I would love to ride No Quarter around there. But 500 mile days would get old getting there.
I found the end of the internet

Well, seeing as I probably led you lot into hijacking temptation I feel compelled to try get everyone back on track.
I wish I had the skill and vision to build a delicious specimen such as this:
