the trailer flexes(sp?) when you take a turn. it still unnerves me the first few miles. then i just accept it. but you'll def see the bike lean in the rear view. but if it'll handle the st1300 it should be fine for most bikes i'd think. and my buddy used it for a full bagger harley too.

Nice job, motor is in front of the axle so that certainly helps. Good that you'll be approaching the 100lbs on the front.

I bet your Rabbit does a better job than my old car.



Yes, that MR2 was rated for 1K pounds too.
I remember my dad hauling an entire palate of sod on a '65 Ford truck bed trailer, with a '69 Bug. He hauled railroad ties that way, too. He wasn't poor, just REAL CHEAP...

Re: FJR trailered with a Rabbit

I'd recommend finding a better way than those little bungies to hold your ramps down. The vibrations will allow the ramps to slice through those and then you'll reach your destination and start wondering where you lost your ramp. Don't ask how I know this.
