Many Goldwing riders tow trailers, and it's their business, but I wouldn't even consider it. It might work fine out on the open highway, but it would totally destroy the handling characteristics of a motorcycle, and in traffic, that near miss that most riders have had so many times wouldn't be a miss anymore. The ONLY advantage a motorcycle has over a car is it's maneuverability, and a trailer would completely destroy that.
I would even go so far as to say that towing a trailer with anything other than a semi tractor is a bad idea. They are the only vehicle specifically designed to tow a trailer.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
