    I know with the 08 and older bike you could add a trailer hitch, what about 09 has anyone tried or know of a kit? I have seen bikeer that have converted the hitch to a platform to put a mid size cooler on it.

    First let me say this: I KNOW MY BIKES DIRTY (I ride way too much, but then what the hay). Ok that said this is the MCHitch receiver hitch. It was a pretty easy install. My trailer should be here in about a month. First time pulling one so I'm anxious to get it. Have a trip planed the end of March to Cali and back to Ohio, I’ll be gone for about 2 months. Can't wait.

    Looks good Rob, how about a pic from the side with bag off to see how it mounts to the frame.

    Rob --- I agree here with joel --- How about a pic or two !?? I have a 07 UC and thinking about a trailer - wife & I are "putting our heads together" ( well she is!!) about a trip out to Pennsl. & N. Carolina.

    I installed the Dauntless Motors trailer hitch on my /09 Ultra. Over the years, I've installed 6 trailer hitches on motorcycles and this was, by far, the easiest install (including the wiring) of any. Dauntless is located in Enumclaw, WA. and make great products.

    Looks like a very clean install, what is the load limit, and if you have tested it with a trailer, how does it feel?

    that is a very good question? One I'm going to have to call them and find out. You would have thought that I would have all ready done that, but it will be answered soon I will tell you that. And no I don't have the trailer yet. It will be here by the 2nd week of March (I hope). I am leaving for CA. the last full week of March. I told them I would very much like to have it by then so as to get a little use to pulling it. I'll load it with weight to see what it feels like.
