When reading another thread on here where a guy was wanting advice on buying an Ultra Glide, he mentioned the bike had a trailer hitch. Several members jumped on that and told him to avoid the bike as the trailer hitch is an indicator of possible excessive loads on the engine and transmission. I bought a great used Ultra because it had a trailer. From what I have seen of many riders, the load of some riders and passengers exceed the weight my wife, the trailer (loaded), and me would put on my bike. By the avoidance logic it would seem you should ask how much the rider and passenger weigh before buying a bike. Was I reading the responses wrong?
