dmc trailer hitch

Hitch came on bike.
I never used it to pull.
It comes with receiver with ball and warring harness.

Used DMC trailer hitch that is for a K1600 GTL/GT. no damage or missing parts, complete with installation instructions, wiring harness, (no mounting templates), and mounting hardware.

New price from DMC is $495 (not sure if that includes shipping)

My price: $295 to include ground shipping to the lower 48 states

I can attest that the DMC hitch is strong and versatile.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from . . .

Adding the flag pole with flag was a nice touch when packing your trailer Meese.

Meese,

That is the classic cart before the horse. You are towing a Kendon Motorcycle trailer BEHIND a motorcycle! !

Oh, I've towed the GTL and a few other bikes on that trailer as well.

Anyway, if anyone is looking for a hitch for their K16, for any purpose, this one works well.

I have sent a PM. Seeing the versatility here might be something to look at although I have NEVER thought of pulling a trailer on a trip before. Might be a way to go instead of looking like the "Beverly Hillbillies" on a K1600GTL......
