How to bring a motorcycle with you?

I have been planning to buy a toy hauler for many months, now as the time draws near we went to the Tampa RV show and looked at all options. Our plan is changed somewhat in that we are now thinking of being semi full time. That is we would probably be away for several months at a time.

My wife raised the point that you loose so much space with the garage even though it is somewhat used as patio etc, its not living space. That said we are leaning towards a Pinnacle but I want to take my motorcycle too. BMW 1200 GS which weighs #580 ish I guess.

We have seen swivel wheels, lifts additional trailers etc. All seem to have pros and cons.

Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated

I'm not young enough to know everything.

That was one, of several, reasons why we wanted a motorhome. I already had a Kendon single-bike trailer so we can easily pull our Shadow behind the Greyhawk.

We use the garage in the TH as living space...
It's a separate bedroom when needed, dog kennel, game area, extended dining area, enclosed porch, etc etc.

I have the same issue...I'd like to take my BMW R1150RT, about the same size & weight as your GS. Towing another trailer behind the fiver is about the only real solution other than a toy hauler. I don't think it's legal in FL, tho. I was thinking of getting a smaller lighter bike that I could haul in a carrier mounted in front.
