Does anyone know if you can actually tow a motorcycle like this?
Ever since I ran across this pic, ive been thinking about making one for my BMW. I like the idea of not having to rent a uhaul to move again, and it looks cheaper than buying a small trailer. I was thinking that I could fabricate a regular trailer hitch, then instead of a ball I could turn a steel bar down to the size of my CB350’s axle, and weld it on.
