In 1982 Bill Brobst wrote a primer, to answer the questions of hundreds
of motorcyclists who pull trailers. or who might want to, and who have
no one to turn to but their friends. Sometimes their friends can help.
But sometimes their experiences and knowledge are not responsive or
applicable to the particular question. Or those friend may have the
same questions themselves.
Now, Jim Victor has partnered with Bill to revise,
update and append the information available in this second edition of
'Pulling Your Tail'.
In this book, you will learn about the different types of trailers, highway rules and regulations, speed limits for trailers, wiring your bike to your trailer, the different types of hitches, what causes trailer swaying and wagging, safety chains and how to hook them up correctly, plus many more don't-do, should-do, and must-do tips.
The cost of the book is $17.95 CAD plus $5.00 shipping and handling.

BOOK REVIEW/TESTIMONIAL as posted on Yamaha Royal Star Venture Forum.
Well as it happened today I had time to read the ENTIRE book. Of course I'm sure I will go back and re-read different sections of the book from time to time. If you are remotely thinking of getting a trailer from a small cargo trailer to a pop-up camper as I'm in the process of by all means get this book. It is loaded with all sorts of things I had never thought of. Mr. Victor has done a most excellent job of putting all of the info that a novice trailer hauler would need to know into one place for convenient and handy reference. And I the best part is the author is an RSV rider, and has some photos with the RSV in it!!
Excerpts from book.
All trailers intended for
extensive road use with a motorcycle should have some method of cushioning the
trailer and its contents from road vibration and shock.There are four basic systems: Coil, Leaf, Torsion and Air Ride.
Coil springs operate by forcing the trailer weight down and. . . .
Be alert also when you pull in for fuel, and
also when you leave.You don’t want to
put the trailer up on the island.The
sudden jerk when the trailer wheel hits the curb could make you dump your bike.
Only 13 years 'til I get my license!
I love Grandpa's Denray trailer hitch.
