Question for both Java and Mudguard. What weight limits have been prescribed for your trailers (and how much does your standard trailer weigh empty)?
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

We do it the other way. Plenty of comfort and bikes when we need them.
Red MK II with full luggage, MRA screen, hugger, crash bungs, heated grips and Autocom.
CB1300SA with a few bits.

Message for Nuff. Trailer Weight 36Kg
                          Laden Weight Limit 150Kg or 2/3 of motorcycle kerb side weight if motorcycle weight is less than 150Kg.
I know it states in the owners manual not to attach a trailer or sidecar to your motorcycle but I believe it says this in all owners manuals inluding Gold Wings and I'm sure you've seen the size of some the trailers being towed by them. I have seen my model of trailer being towed by a vast range of bikes ranging from Enfield Bullets to Pan Europeans.

Wow. That's a lot of weight you're allowed to carry mudguard!

I'm very interested to see how hitch is attached to your bike.  I own a CBF 1000 2009
Honda CBF 1000a 2009. Still running strong. Great bike.
