"Hmm.... A tent trailer is likely heavier than what I would pull, and a K100 is maybe 150-250 pounds lighter than my Road King. No dirt or gravel roads for me with a trailer, but I'd assume that twisty 2 lanes aren't a problem, just go slower? I've also heard that a bike with trailer handles better than an overloaded bike. I know there's a huge handling difference in the Road King when I have all of our crap strapped on."

All true! The trailer was around 350 lbs, but with the beer and crap we always carried (riding with 2 other guys who used my trailer as storage) likely 400.

And you are absolutely correct, I would rather have that extra weight off the bike any day.
