Thought I would chime in . Motorcycles are dangerous ! Not to mention unless you have a boss hog with a 572 you won't have enough power to pull a small hill ! All the bullshit aside , I used to pull a nice little trailer with my Kawasaki 440 . I will be the first to admit that going over the rocky mountains I had to downshift and my mileage dropped down into the thirties . My buddy and I took turns pulling it and we added short ATV flags to the fenders so we would remember it was there . Emergency maneuvers were a bit more dicey . I came over a hill near Devils Tower and a full sized station wagon was passing a logging truck and had to run myself into the ditch . It was a bit of a pucker moment but no harm , no foul (just a bitch tilling sand getting back up on the road) . The total weight loaded was around 320#. Just remember I had around 45 HP and multiple hundred pound tow rig . Here is the only pic really showing the rig going to Sturgis in 81' . [IMG]Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug[/IMG]
