Re: FD Question...
I am sure that MOST of the failed drives were on bikes that never pulled a trailer. I have been watching this since the LT web groups started.
I had one fail, and in over 100,000 miles I never pulled a trailer, and only rode 2 up probably less than 500 miles.
Besides, a trailer actually puts only a little extra weight on the rear of the bike, less than a rather small passenger would. Riding 2 up is worse than a trailer. Of course, most who pull a trailer are most often doing it while riding a passenger.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
