    Trailers to pull behind motorcycle?

    Is this the thread to discuss using a motorcycle to pull a trailer? Or..is there a better thread for that subject?

    These folks can share some good information on pulling a trailer or camper. http://www.motocampers.com/
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key

    Now that I know which forum is appropriate, I want to get your opinions and comments that you may have.

    I will start a new thread for that.

    "Doable" does not mean "should be done."

    With all that rig, I would think that it would spoil the fun of motorcycling! I ride because I enjoy it, not to make a chore out of it!

    Try this with most any other trailer. Riding two-up all the time requires either a significant amount of down-sizing or obtaining a modest storage capacity increase with this little rig. With a little jiggin' around we made it into the courtyard accommodations. (New Orleans visit 2007) - Bob

    I had seen that one written up somewhere - probably mentioned in the MOA ON mag.

    It sure is a novel idea.

    Good idea to have a TPMS with internal tire temperatue sensoring if carrying massive loads like some of these examples. Never good to exceed tire ratings.
