Gold Wing towing capacity

Sorry, but I just had to post this, the pictures just do not do the scene justice.

I saw the bike going down the highway with the trailer loaded with all sorts of furniture....I guess the rider got it unloaded before he parked ( or abandoned ) the sorry old GW....

That is a LOAD, especially for an older 'Wing. That is a 1200 CC or smaller model. The 1800's have been rigged up to do commercial disabled vehicle towing, and have been reported as up to the job, so far.

Someone saw this picture and wanted to know how the LT could handle that big of a trailer, I guess it does look like it is hitched up and ready to go.

Love that LT. Headlight treatment and removed top box look great!
