    Has anyone tried these towing systems to tow your Tri-Glide. Can be seen at

    I looked at them and some others offered on the internet for towing my wife's trike (not a Harley). As an engineer I wondered if the front end, forks and neck bearings would stand the strain of pulling all the weight of the trike. I purchased a trailer instead.

    Points well taken! I guess you wouldn't want to tow it long distances over rough terrain.

    I was thinking more along the line that you would be exerting force on the forks and bearings in the opposite direction for which they were designed.
