I made one of those a number of years back to tow a Suzuki GN400. I would advise against it. When turning a 90 degree corner the bike will "lay down" and when you straighten back out it won't always stand back up. Now you're dragging it on it's side. Not will grind off a lot of chrome. I know.....

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.

Anytime I need a trailer it is from U haul. I know here you can't do one way with the motorcycle trailer. It's been 3 years since I rented one so they might have revised their policy. I dragged one down to Tryon NC years ago to pick up a 1974 850 Moto Guzzi. That trailer empty was in the air more than on the road. 28 bucks for 2 days, you can't beat that.

My recommendation is used a proper towing its a risky for the bike, I have used that but not satisfied with that experience, so would recommend using use a trailer for motorcycle towing service.
