Trailer Hitch

Postby Forge » Thu Dec 21, 2017 8:30 pm

Has anyone installed a trailer hitch on their 1400? My brother has a lightweight bike trailer that he used to pull behind his Goldwing. He said I can use it whenever I want to. I’m thinking it would be cool to use to haul camping equipment. I found a link to this one and was wondering if anyone has experience with any brands.

I built my own hitch, but I had a heavy duty mount for my luggage rack to bolt the upright to. Towed a trailer a lot with it.

The one you show looks like it would do a good job.

I will advise you to do a lot of towing with the trailer empty to get used to it, then slowly add weight to it to get used to how the bike handles it loaded.
I can't seem to win the lottery. I think I have used up all of my good luck riding motorcycles.
