Re: 1600 trailer hitch
Yes. I donated my bike for the initial prototype. They were supposed to make one and install it for me before my October trip. Two months passed and they never called. I left three messages before they ever did, and by then my trip had already been scrubbed because I didn't have a way to pull my Bushtec trailer and it was late October or early November by then. VERY POOR customer service. IIRC, the very same thing happened to me when I tried to buy a hitch from them for my LT several years ago.
I live only 35 or so miles from the factory, but I will buy a Dauntless hitch for my trip next year. I love the Bushtec trailer and don't think there's a better trailer on the market, but their customer service just plain blows. The Dauntless hitch I put on my LT was very well made and never gave me any issues. Sorry Bushtec, but you've pooped in your mess kit with me.

00 K1200LT (Emil) 94,840 trouble free miles. Gone, but not forgotten
02 R1150RT (Artie) 109,000 miles. Favorite bike. With me to the end.
10 K1300GT (The Phantom) 10,110 miles. Like flying a T-38 on 2 wheels. Gone.
12 K1600GTL (Johnny 5) 3,500. A great compromise between the LT and GT
