Has anyone tried to trailer a dirt bike behind a gold wing?? I have a 2021 gold wing and a 2021 YZ125X weighs a 190 pounds, I don't want to go for maybe maybe 20 miles, I could stay off the freeway. What do you think?

I was just talking about this with my wife. Maybe instead of a sidecar, a sidetrailer! Maybe something that would haul a couple of dual sports for about 600lbs???

If you get a trailer with suitably wide wheel base, it should be no problem. Remember, its' not the weight of the bike, but the center of gravity. Here's a picture of one, but the trailer needs some sort of suspension, plus lighting.

I've seen pictures of a Wing towing a dirt bike. Don't remember where, but it should work.

At Americade one year, there was a Wing towing a canoe full of camping gear. No reason you can't tow a dirt bike with the proper trailer.

I'm convinced, the video is awesome. I was probably going to do it anyway because that's what I usually do. But I absolutely have some confidence now Thank you very much

190 lbs for the bike and maybe another 100 lbs or so for the trailer should be no problem. Just leave yourself a little extra time & distance for stopping. I know a guy that has pulled a camper trailer that weighed nearly 500 lbs. It pulled ok but was a handfull to stop especialy in a panic stop.

Thanks!
I couldn’t resist!!
If I thought I were riding more road than trail I might have gone with the FE501s. The FE350 is plenty for the trails though. I love it.
