    why do you want to know. I'm not sure I trust you with that information.

    I find the idea of pulling a trailer with a motorcycle counterintuitive to the spirit of motorcycling. It should be about getting away from the things that hold you down, not dragging them along with you.

    However, there is an exception to every rule.



    After 3 1/2 years I doubt the OP cares anymore.

    A guy showed up at Firebird raceway in PHX years ago for one of our club races. He was riding a Gold Wing, and towing a GSX-R1100 on a single rail trailer. He ended up crashing the Gixxer, loaded it back up and rode home. Never saw him again...

    Anyway, the now-deleted spammer re-opened this thread, so we may as well have some fun with it!

    Fun thread!

    We westerners forget that motorcycles do in fact serve as workhorses, family haulers and taxis in many parts of the world. But you want a lazy, low-revving dual purpose bike with a steel frame for that sort of abuse... exactly the opposite of an MT09. Think Yamaha XT250 or Kawasaki KLR650. And go slow.

    Personally, I prefer my Silverado crew cab 😋
