    I found this on Bushtec trailer hitches. I can not seem to find spec in owners manual. It seems Harley does not even offer a HD O.E. hitch in P&A catalog.

    TOWING CAPACITY - 350 LBS. MAXIMUM GVWR
    TONGUE WEIGHT CAPACITY - 70 LBS. MAXIMUM

    Pretty sure that HD specifically disallows towing. I don't think you are going to find anything like an official towing capacity for your bike.

    I would say it would be okay with the weight, as long as you don't have a crazy tongue weight. I know some stay between 25-45 lbs for 2 wheeled bikes... you could probably do 60-75 lbs... I wouldn't push it though.

    Remember to keep your load evenly distributed too. Last thing you need is trailer sway and have a jackknifing episode; could be fatal.

    I saw someone last weekend towing with a 1200 Sporty with a homemade trailer and what looked to be a homemade hitch setup. Looked pretty neat and interesting.
