Re: Do you use a swivel joint for towing?
I guess I have to differ. I had the experience of dropping the LT all the way over in a motel drive without a swivel hitch. This was pulling a Bunkhouse camper and no damage was done to the trailer or the bike.
Even though I had it in first gear on the compression stroke, the bike rolled off the side stand due to the extra weight of the trailer pushing it.
