guess it all depends what you want out of having a bike
if you are one of 'those' collectors who go to historic meets to show off you bike, or try to win 'concours' competitions then a trailer is probably the only way to go.
if you just want to parade up and down the main drag a few times and be seen (or heard) then a trailer is the way to go.
if you want to ride, then unless you have a sepcialty bike, or incredible distance to travel before you get to where you want to ride, then ride the bike.
I can understand why in the US, with its huge distances you might want to trailer to get there. but if all you are doing as the focus of the event I'd ride, not trailer. but then again I have a bike to ride, not to preen, polish or otherwise pamper. i don't have a wife or partner that I have to spend qualtiy time ignoring or avoiding by being in the garage.
But ultimately go ride the bike, although preening and polishing isn't my cup of tea, if it encourages others or gives meaning to their lives who cares, thats their choice. not for me, but I'd never demand others conform to my ideas of what my life is about, and I wouldn't expect that of others
