Different type of trailr of the LT?

Because I have no life, I spend a great deal of time this past winter surfing the 'net. I remember seeing a trailer that connects to the frame of a BMW without using a hitch. The trailer looked like a unigo but bolted directly to the bike.

Anyone else see this trailer or am I going insane?

I don't know it all, but I do know a thing or two about trailers,
(I'm currently on my fourth one)
and I have never seen a hitch as you describe,
although the Dauntless hitch "appears" to be part of the bike,
maybe that's what you're thinking?

Might want to check on coffin prices also
Had a very simular set up that mounted, that high up to the rear seat frame on my 1974 R90/6, to pull a thing called the cycleburro.
Pulled fine most of the time, however every once in awhile, because of the height of the attachment point, it would set up this really weird (shit your pants) scary oscillation.
Seems most trailer hook ups are mounted at axle height so that a weight shift has to move the whole bike, with it mounted right at the seat level, it was like a passenger leaning off the side of the bike without warning.
Do as you please, just take note you have been warned, and extra shorts

Rock, the trailer we're talking about not only mounts at axle height, but it mounts directly to the rear axle of the bike. Not high up.

Here is a link to a promo video. Quality sucks but you'll get the idea.

http://www.motogoodies.com/images/RAPTOR.WMV

According to the website- 1220 Euros for the trailer + 309 to connect to a beemer= 1529 Euros or $2,042.13 U.S. dollars

Unigo or Bushtec are the tried and true alternatives for same amount.

Oh well!

"All three models sold out."

Not sure of the affiliation, but this is a Ten Kate offering. As in WSB domination.

It looks like they only carry the Raptor version. As for "Ten Kate" or "WSB Domination", I have no clue what you're saying.

Yes, it is only for sale overseas.

The site clearly states "all three models sold out."

Ten Kate is a Dutch Honda racing team, dominant in World Super Bike (WSB) and World Supersport, for that matter. Ten Kate is a surname, pronounced "ten kahtay." They sell all sorts of high end racing bits, all the way up to a complete, ready to race modified bike.

It appears from the website that Ten Kate is either the distributor or manufacturer of the trailer.

Welcome to the forum Marco,

there's a lot of information available on this forum that you're probably interested in,
at the top of the page you'll see a search box,
click on that and type in trailer hitch and you can go back a couple of years and read what others have said,

here's one of mine with a couple of pictures.
http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...=trailer+hitch

Another good place for information is:
http://forums.delphiforums.com/n/mai...towing%2Fstart

The two best hitch manufactorers in the US are Dauntless and Bushtec,
they both have pictures on their web site.

http://www.bushtec.com/

http://www.dauntlessmotors.com/

that should keep you busy for a while.
