Trailer Towing with a GS

Anyone tow a trailer with a GS? I have a TimeOut camper I pull with my LT and was wondering if the GS will pull it when I ride two up? I posted this question on the GS forum also.

Re: Trailer Towing with a GS

Of course it will, what has happened to people we used to think nothing of traveling hundreds of miles with much lower poweredl bikes than we have today
The only thing to be aware of is mainly to do with LT and RT models with electric servo brakes a diabolical issue if trailer wiring affects resistance in the circuit .
Result will be brake system faults or worse loss of brakes which is why BMW do not Authorise use of trailers. Product liability and Insurance issues may well arise.
