    So a question to the quandry that presents.

    Is it better to overload the bike and do a single vehicle or pack the bike light and the trailer only part to capacity then and thus a tow? This is assuming that even the overloaded bike is packed with best wt distribution and the bike/ trailer set up with same best wt distribution and tongue wt.

    To those that tow..we want to know.

    You guys totally missed the big one on that pic.

    Yeah, he's towing a trailer.

    Yeah, he's two-up.

    Yeah, he's on a touring bike.

    Yeah, he's on 129.


    But did you see the Florida tag???

    It's a corner.

    And he's railing it.

    A Floridian.

    On a corner.

    Cranking it.


    Big picture: Win!

    Fashion failure! He should tuck the jeans into his boots or buy longer riding pants. Oh, and their helmets don't match.
