Show was a bust. No trailers or hitches. Mostly all adventure riding stuff, which I'm not into.

I still think I'll go with the Bushtec and probably a hitch rack first. Of course I'll get a flag setup for the PGR.
Just sent you a PM.

Thanks. That’s cool. I’ll keep you in mind. I had considered wiring issues yet.

I have this on my 2015 Wing and my wife's F6b. I pull a trailer or both of us can insert a rack. This summer we went from GA to IL, KY, WV, VA, TN and I really didn't know about the hollers in WV so we both added racks to both bikes instead of pulling a trailer. Pulled the trailer with it around the blue ridge parkway and was very solid and held up great.

Bushtec hitch with deluxe ball stuff, centramatic balancers, and vertical hitch rack ordered this morning.

I did not get their wiring harness and will probably opt for something M61A1Mech offered when the time comes. I'll be coming up on my 16k mile service next month and will get the hitch and balancers installed at that time. After that I'll start looking for some kind of container that can be secured to the rack. I'm thinking about some type of plastic tool box with decent latches that seals so any rain or dust will be kept out that I can also throw a lock on.

The new stuff arrived today!

I don't know how big I thought the Centramatic discs were going to be, but they seem smaller than I thought they would be. Whatever.

I'll get it all installed at my next service at 16k miles. They way my riding time is going lately that is starting to look like mid March. We have a trip planned back to Hot Springs in early April, so it'll get done before then.

Hitch and wheel balancers installed. Now to begin looking for a container to mount to the rack that goes into the hitch. I'll try putting that on tomorrow to see what I think.

Also time to get my flag mount, poles, and flags ordered.
