Oooooh, pretty Aluma. Great looking rig too.
I was pulling mine with 85 VW van, so I still had trouble with 75 MPH.
I just put a hitch on my Camry. We'll see how that goes.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.

LOL, I always said my KLR would break 100mph IF you threw it out the back of a C-5...maybe.

When I saw the thread title, I guessed what the answer was going to be. Piece of cake. :lol:

Isn't your tongue weight a little heavy with the bike so far forward? Just curious.

Oh, and I like the white Ural.. I always have liked white. I just could not afford to get a "Мир" model.

YMMV

Nah. Trailer only weighs 500lbs empty, and I’m towing it with a full size truck.

"Tongue Weight" is more about how the trailer follows the truck than it is about the weight on the hitch;

evenly distributed, centered on the axle, or ahead of it is good,

majority of the weight concentrated behind the axle is asking for trouble.
