    DOT standards for new motor vehicles, and what is allowed on the road can be 2 different things.

    The DOT doesn't certify motorcycles for towing, but all states will license motorcycle trailers, and won't ticket folks towing them.

    Why? I don't know.

    They will ticket for towing a trailer with a motorcycle over 55 mph. A couple of Buddy's had to depart from our group a few years back due to too many excessive speed with trailer tickets :lol3

    I had a set up like that....it had pedals and I was two. I'm sure it was more fun than it looked but it worked a lot better once it was removed. Enjoy Carefully...looks like a great way to get hurt.


    Around here there are a few big bikes with electric training wheels. Above a certain speed they retract. Below that speed they deploy so it holds the bike up at a stop. Looks like a viable option if your legs don't work anymore.
