Re: first time to pull trailer?
I pulled a trailer around the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, a couple of years ago. Biggest thing I noticed right away was the trailer pushing the bike on stops, once I got used to it and started slowing a bit earlier, I never thought about it again. Backing up wasn't a problem with the reverse on the LT, my brother-in-law on his old Gold Wing was envious. Even on the winding, twisty, Cabot Trail I really didn't notice the trailer, other than, as someone already posted, trying to avoid potholes, debris in the road, etc., isn't quite as easy. But having a cooler of cool drinks and a bunch of sandwiches in the cooler was great. Also, with variable weather conditions, being able to just throw the heavy coat in the tralier and grab something lighter was awesome. On a trip, especially with the wife on board, I wouldn't try to do it without a trailer. Now I have to get that same trailer connected to the RT.
