Motorcycles can also be towing machines

Among all classes of vehicles; SUVs, cars, pickups I think there should be a way to modify the strength of a motorcycle to have the capacity to pull a trailer with load.

There are companies that specialize in trailers for motorcycles. I do not personally like the idea of towing a trailer with a motorcycle, but I have many friends who do tow a trailer.

Being a trucker the first thing that comes to mind when pulling a trailer with a motorcycle would be a panic brake situation and have that trailer come around and "jack knife"...

I've never actually seen it happen but that would be on my mind for sure.

I do see a lot of bikes pulling trailers in my travels and safely I might add..
