If you don't pull a trailer, shut up.

If you haven't any experience with a trailer, your opinion is not needed. It is up to the rider if he wants to use a trailer or not. Get over it.
I have pulled a Kwik Kamp trailer, weighs 350 empty, about 450 loaded, all over without a single problem. I have pulled it with my 2002 Suzuki Intruder 1500, sometimes at speeds that were well inexcess of interstate speeds and in 30 mph sidewinds too. It has never gotten squirelly at all. My opinion on the safety chains is on 2 wheels, don't use the chains, check your gear often because if it comes loose, it will drag you where-ever it wants to without any regard as to where. I have also pulled this trailer with my sidecar rig too the extra wheel makes me safer, and I use the safety chains with this bike. It won't mess me up too bad if it comes loose from that big rig.
