I bought a second bike, and needed to get it 90 miles from the seller's house to mine. Riding it was an option, but a bad idea due to old tires. I installed a trailer hitch and wiring harness a couple months back but never needed to use it.

Lessons learned:
1. Mount the tow ball up-side down on the tongue/receiver so you don't scrape as much. I scraped the trailer about 5 times over the course of 90 miles.
2. Trailers are more stable when weighed down with a load.
3. The TSX is still great at accelerating with a trailer, but not so good at going up hill. It had to downshift into 3rd to maintain 60 on some of the hills in the bay.

What I don't understand is why Uhaul wouldn't let me rent the smaller, motorcycle trailer. The trailer itself is about 400lbs lighter. Any ideas on that?

Yeah the TSX is certainly capable of towing lighter loads, the K24's got good torque for a 4 cylinder
