Funnily enough it was the sides of the front tyre that wore, it was the original Metz.
I've noticed on long downhill roads you get a little push, but you forget it's there most of the time.
On the M5 near Bristol traffic came to a complete stop, I decided to filter, the bike has dresser bars and highway pegs (the widest part of the whole rig) and I was able to go through some narrow gaps.
My wife following on her Bonnie was laughing at folk staring as I passed!

A guy I've ridden with can zoom through the twisties pulling a trailer that by all rights is too large to be pulled by a motorcycle.

Personally, if I need to pull a trailer, I'm taking the car instead.

Besides bringing the Mrs,with me to do a four corners tour I am looking to do some metal detecting as well. So on certain occassions I will want to bring a trailer and other times not....so this affords me a little more flexibility.

The trailer I listed seems to have a great price and a lot of extras. The pivoting hitch will make twisties better.

I have a Uni-Go, and it has been awesome. No need to worry about dropping a tire off the edge of the pavement... it track directly behind the bike tire.

That is a way cool trailer and seems to hold a fantastic line behind each type bike.

Music sounds like the sound track from a 1980s porn movie though.

I've seen a Unigo. What I like about it is the compact size and the ability to bring the whole shebang into your hotel room.

I ordered this one pictured below. While the uni was nice this holds more and comes with many extras. I may be doing some camping in the future and I think this will make that a little easier as well. Since the scale of things out here are so great it will also come in handy as well. It is being painted the same color as the Wing. I should have it in four weeks.

I use this trailer when we go on holiday on my Vespa scooter, it does catch the wind a little bit on blowy days and it's best to avoid any hills apart from that it has everything and is awesome
