I should have known but being a Wing Noob I'm drawn like a moth to a light to that kind of thing!

You can buy one. They run $177,000.00. The dolly has its own braking system. The bike only steers the dolly and provides forward thrust. I contacted these guys when they were first developing this vehicle. i asked to be the American distributor for them. Sadly, our gu'mint will not allow a motorcycle to tow a car. It is the same mentality that prevented scooters with disc brakes and anti-lock braking, etc. and TWO HAND BRAKES from coming to America for so long. Our gu'mint said you couldn't have TWO hand brakes, because the vehicle code (circa 1917) states that a motorcycle MUST have a hand brake and a foot brake so the rider can use his left hand to signal his turns and stops. Never accuse the U.S. Gu'mint of moving too quickly on anything beneficial to America. They are too busy trying to destroy the country.

Seeing that Wing pulling a car is not all that different from what I feel riding a passenger.

Our rider educator did his article in this month's chapter newsletter on the gvwr rating of a goldwing. Stating that we only had about 412 lbs to play with. Sorry to say, between my co-rider and I, we slightly exceed that weight limit without anything in the truck or bags! LOL!!
