Trikes are also better touring platforms, IMO, and much better at pulling trailers, too.
That was my thought on pulling a trailer. I'm retiring soon and plan to do some coast to coast trips. I traded my 2010 Street Glide for the 2017 Tri Glide.

Trikes require a different set of riding skills that most have not experienced, I see constant comments about not leaning, for the bike, this is true, for the rider, not exactly, leaning or weight shifting can be advantageous, cornering is very different from two wheels to three. It is challenging and fun.

I have just purchased a Bush Tec Trailer for my new T/G, it's in the process of color matching the Anniversary paint scheme, looking forward to some trips.

I still ride 2 wheels, I added the T/G for my wifes enjoyment, she absolutely loves riding the T/G, I can't say she enjoyed the 2 wheels much.

Pro-Action is the shock Kevin is running on his TriGlide. When I rode his trike, it had 13" units on the rear and ride quality was excellent. It has the newer 14" shocks installed now and those are even better.
