Now here is something I feel the same way about that all those ATGATT riders do about all that gear. I never have and never will pull a trailer with a motorcycle. IMO, it is simply not acceptably safe. The handling dynamics of a single track vehicle (motorcycle) simply do not work with a double track vehicle (trailer).
I know people have ridden millions of miles while pulling a trailer without any issues. People have also ridden millions of miles with no gear, and never got a scratch.
I ride around here in the summer quite often with no gear but a helmet. So far my luck has held out. But I wouldn't pull a trailer with a motorcycle no matter how much gear I was wearing. This is of course MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
