I agree with you both. BUT!!! it pulled beautifully before the CT. Just for troubleshooting purposes, I think i'll wait til i get the Pilot Activ on the front and see how it handles before I go to modifying the trailer. Even with the '80 model and this bike, if i pulled it empty without the loaded ice chest, it had a little wiggle to it but nothing that concerned me. I may try it again with the trailer loaded to see if it acts right.
