Changes the way you ride, and the way everyone rides who is with you. Though convenient, curves must be taken slower, mountain curves are annoying, even on the straightaway riding is slower. The worst trip I ever had was with another person who had a trailer, and it was very small. Spent two weeks poking along the roads, riding through curves and driving as if we were in a car. Straight up and no lean. Yecch. If you get a trailer, know you change your ride.
