Someof us pull trailers, mostly smaller ones butas for me a rather large & heavy one. (see photos NASSIR #2 )

I'd like to see the foot-brakerear/front have alever to regulate the amount ofapplied brake pressure.


Regular one/two-up riding is fine where it's at.

Pulling my non-braked trailerdoes some pushing on the bike when stopping. I'd like a little more control, less front brake than rear.

Then when I pull my other trailer, withit's electric brakes, I'd like more front brake than rear. We know the handlebarbrake lever can handle this since it's up front only but in some panic situations 2 firmly mounted hands on the bars is essential.


Just my (deflation ) $0.00002 worth.

You would first have to get Honda to sanction pulling a trailer.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
