Some additional thoughts for you:
1. You may be the first K1600 rider with a Unigo!?
2. With the length of your custom hitch setup, you should have no problem backing the bike-Unigo rig. I don't know what you can see in the 1600's mirrors, but being able to back up unassisted is nice.
3. I showed my wife your new photos. She said "You know, we need to get another Unigo", and I agree with her. We really enjoyed it, and even though we'd like the larger capacity of the bigger trailers we like the size and weight of the Unigo. Let us know if you decide to trade up some time in the future.
Thanks, Howard -- no problem! From what I've read, 27-30 seems to be the concensous from the distributors and a few of the more experienced users. I'll start at 27 psi and go from there.
I know there are 3-4 other trailer hitch installs on the K16 list, and one other person posted about figuring out how/where to get a UniGo hitch plate adapter for his bike, but I don't recall seeing pics of another one on the lists -- but given that 99% of BMW riders are not on the major lists, I can't believe I'm the first. And any event, the only one that matters to me is the one tailgating me.
I know what you mean about the convenience of the bigger trailers; my Bushtec was "da bomb" for heavy hauling. That said, our needs just are less today, so the UniGo looks like a promising middle ground.
On the last comment, ok, I'll make it official: You have right of first refusal
That said, you may want to go ahead and send out for new brochures, as I'm afraid it might be a while!
