    Why tow when you can carry.

    Are we sure they are towing it? Maybe they backed into it and it got stuck there. Hahaha

    That's the only reason I would own one of them.

    I wonder if it would fit on my motorcycle trailer? I could bring it along in case it rains. [:D]

    Is it my imagination or are there two different size rims?

    I have a friend in Illinois with a motorcycle repair business. He rides a Goldwing with a sidecar frame attached. He has a single ramp on the sidecar and will haul fully dressed Harleys on the sidecar frame. Quite the sight going down the Interstate.

    The photo is deceptive. It's actually a small tire under the tongue to keep the weight off of the bike's frame.

    Here's my favorite towing shot;

    You can't beat a Goldwing!

    I've heard of them.
    I always see them on the side of the road getting put into the back of a pickup, though. Never seen one towing... [:D]

    FYI-I used to be at Easyrider magazine all the time. The Lou (the owner) was my friend's mom's boyfriend. I rode a Suzuki GS1100E at the time.

    "Yeah, but mine always runs," came out of my mouth quite often! [LOL]

    It actually got high test crash ratings. I know someone who has one as their main vehicle. She is a traveling hospice nurse in Northern Ohio. She's been through 2 winters with it and loves it.

    It would be so much more convenient for a motorhome than towing. You could actually back up!

    I've actually owned quite a few of them.
    In fact, I rode my first Goldwing from the Harley dealer while he was rebuilding my Bicentennial Classic.
    That friend in Illinois runs a Harley shop. The Goldwing is his shop truck.

    It gets great crash test ratings, but the secondary and tertiary impacts are what scare me.
    In the NHTSA head-on crash test, the Smart "bounced" backwards and went into the walls of the crash test building. It was a first for the NHTSA.
    You can have a ping pong ball made of Kryptonite, but it's still a ping pong ball.

    This has been "educational"! I once saw was a shirtless dude on a motor cycle w/ a gun across his lap and towing a jon boat. Sadly it was before cell phone cameras [LOL]

    Any idea if the picture of the smart car is legitimate and not photochopped?

    Either way, you won't find me in a smart-car, ever. I actually giggle every time I see one. It is ironic to me that it is a "Smart" car, because it's the dumbest buying decision someone could make.
