Towing a Honda Goldwing 1500 is a relatively easy task if done properly. Since this motorcycle only weighs about 363kg., most towing vehicles and trailers easily meet this towing capacity. The most important thing to remember when towing a motorcycle is to have it properly secured in the trailer and to protect it from the elements and road debris. Any utility trailer will suffice to tow the Goldwing, as long as the necessary loading ramps are available. However, some retailers sell trailers specifically designed to tow a motorcycle.

    Tow the bike where needed.

Tips and warnings

  • The biggest concern when towing a Goldwing is to make sure the bike is properly secured in the trailer. Make sure the tie-down straps are secure and that no side-to-side movement is possible while in transit.
  • You have a nice bike, protect it! Cover the Goldwing with a tarp or other covering when transporting it to keep rocks or other flying debris from scratching your ride.
