Baggers (motorcycles with saddle bags) have become some of the hottest selling motorcycles in the last couple of years, and rightly so. They help make a motorcycle not only fun and economical, but also more practical, being able to carry items along that would’ve had to be left behind before. And just as baggers have become more popular, so too have motorcycle trailers. Again, rightly so for several reasons. Even more items can be carried along, whether going on a long trip, or going home from the grocery store or home improvement store. Also, with Road Dog Trailers having 5 styles of high quality, low priced, very stylish trailers, it has become much more affordable and cool looking to pull a trailer than ever before.
With so many more riders towing trailers, some general towing tips and techniques may be in order.
When hooking up a trailer to a motorcycle, several things need to be checked. Make sure the coupler is adjusted correctly on the hitch ball, latched and locked down. There is another post on this sight that goes in to detail on coupler adjustment. If the motorcycle hitch is adjustable, adjust it vertically so that the trailer is as close to level as possible with the weight on the motorcycle that will be on it while towing, and the weight in the trailer that will be in it while being towed. Cross the safety chains when hooking them up to create a cradle under the trailer tongue. Check that all the trailer lights are working properly. Check the tire pressure. Last of all adjust the motorcycle mirrors to be able to see at least a small part of the trailer with it straight behind the motorcycle.
If new to trailer towing, its best to practice in a parking lot first. It may take just a little more throttle than normal when starting out. Check the stopping power of the motorcycle to see how much the stopping distance is increased with the trailer attached. Starting with small swerves, swerve left and right as in lane changes. When turning corners, overshoot the turns just a little more than usual to keep the trailer’s path behind the motorcycle. Back up a few times to see what that will be like. Remember when parking, it will take a larger area than normal for both the motorcycle and trailer to fit in.

A large part of our innovation and improvements to our trailers come from our loyal customers who give us feedback and input that in turn helps us to manufacture the best motorcycle trailer we can.
Road Dog Trailers have always been designed from the ground up specifically for motorcycles. Our proprietary torsion suspension allows all Road Dog trailers a very low center of gravity.
