    HaHa... Yeah, backing a trailer with a bike is a whole new monster. I drove truck for a living myself but trying to balance the bike and see where the trailer was going sure was a learning experience.

    My mirrors are handlebar mounted so they are useless in watching the trailer while backing. I can do it without making a fool of myself about 1 out of 10 tries. I simply look for a pull thru or take two spots in a parking lot with the bike pointed out.

    Re: Backing up trailer

    So far, I have not had any problems backing up my trailer with my Goldwing. I do not use the reverse unless I planned poorly and parked nose downhill. Like a trailer with a cage, a short axle to hitch distance, exaggerates the correcting steering adjustments. Small and easy, works for me..... so far......
