Cool, thanks !

Possibly some do - but the Goldwing I saw last year towing a Boler 13 on I-5 was likely over its limits - even with European ratings!

Actually Yurpeen rules for motorcycles towing trailers are much more limiting than in the US - indeed, are there any rules about motorcycle trailers in the US?

British law was changed a while ago to allow towing trailers and the maximum trailer weight is 150kg/330lb or 2/3rds the bike's unladen weight, whichever is less. However the more practical limitation is that the trailer may extend no more than 2.5m/8.2ft from the bike's rear axle which severely limits the size of trailer and seems a pretty daft limitation since it stops the use of US-style long tongue trailers which are probably a good idea for bikes.

Wonder how many hours the motorcycle companies spend testing their variety of models towing different sizes, weights, and types of trailers. Do they test for hill climbing, stability, cooling, reliability etc??

Probably not.
