Have many.....many miles pulling a trailer... and safely to boot.
Yes they are not for everyone. And anything can happen on a bike.
I would rather pull a trailer than ride an over loaded bike.
But I believe it has alot to do with the trailer and experience.
Plus you do have to change your riding style when pulling.
You must have a good suspension on the trailer. Trailing arms with shocks are much better than springs. A well built trailer will pull just fine.
I hardly ever unhook the trailer.
This is riding up Moik Dugway Sept.2012. 2 up with trailer. 4300 mile trip in 9 days.
April last year AR HY7. the wife and wing. 3 days 2200 miles.
