That was the first thought I had back when the wasser-boxer engine was first introduced on the GS. They had engineering reasons for sending the air/fuel in from the top and exhaust out the bottom, rather than back to front as in all previous BMW boxer engines. Given that, they try to fool our eyes by taking the exhaust pipe a little bit forward and then to the rear, but I still don't like it.

Fortunately, I do not have enough disposable income to afford such a thing, so it won't really be a problem!

ADVRiders mostly have pretty good taste, especially when it comes to gear.
I've had a 5X8 foot Tractor Supply trailer w/gate for 15 years that's towed everything from dirt bikes to 2000 pound toolboxes w/o issue. Paid for it with $500 or so in change I saved up. Still useable but the wiring is beat so a $30 harness and a couple hours. Tires need replacing as well but they've gotta have 20K on 'em. Think real hard before ya go cheap.


Here's a shot of my CRF leanin' on it at Mountain Ridge.

Don't worry about trailer weight, that's what your cage is for.
That said, I keep my TiaB in a small garden cart, not the bag. I pull it up into my back yard and easily stash it in my shed. Found the info on it. Paid $1000. got the Condor chuck(200) and bigger wheel(150) options at no cost plus they nixed the tax as a show special. $200. for shipping. Feb of 2006. Light bar broke because I wasn't using my brain earlier this year.

Don't know if you're still trailer hunting Chis, but here's a CL Baltimore listing. Maybe you've already seen it.

I got a trailer from truck'n America up near Westminster a few years ago.. wasn't cheap but held up great for my lawn business. They were easy to deal with at least
