I've owned six m/c trailers and believe me, they came in handy. One followed me for 13,000 miles on a USA4Corners trip. It was a 500 lb. popup camper (Aspen Classic). Empty it weighs around 325 lbs. I've owned two other campers and have built three kit trailers from Harbor Freight, which weigh 175 lbs empty and are quite easy to put together. There is also a nice aluminum trailer sold here: https://theusatrailerstore.com/
Much information is available on my Delphi trailer forum: http://forums.delphiforums.com/MCTrailertowing
There are many trailer draggers on www.motorcampers.com
You can see my trailers on my www.picturetrail.com/bvail
I have seen several Burgmans towing trailers over the years. A couple of elderly gents brought their Burgmans and clamshell campers to an IBMC national camp in at Helper, UT. I have photos of them on my photo site.
I presently own a 2006 GL1800 and an Aspen Classic tent trailer, which I am thinking of selling both. I've been riding bikes since 1965 and pulling trailers since around 1998. If I do, I would consider a Burgman Exec 650 and building yet another Harbor Freight trailer.
Hope this helps a bit and I wouldn't pay much attention to the negative Nellies. What's next? Don't go to the Darkside or you will crash and die a fiery death?
Couple of points. Yes, one can load up the bikes with all kinds of paraphernalia such as a tent, sleeping bag, stove, cooler, lighting, whatever it takes and not only will that upset the balance/geometry of the bike but will increase the chance of a crash like the one I had up in the Yukon. Never would have happened if I was pulling a trailer.
Oh, and dogs were mentioned by one poster. Really? I never would subject a pooch to that. Ever.
