With growing time, trailers have become a popular option for motorcycle road trippers. A heavy duty Harley trailer hitch offers all-round security to haul luggage, self-opening campers and pets on your upcoming adventure.
Whether you are touring or camping, the benefits of motorcycle trailers are obvious. There are a number of trailer hitch accessories available today that ensure easy and safe operations of the hitches. Trailers hitch balls, 360 Safety Swivels and hitch receivers are fine examples of hitch accessories that can make the hitches easier to use and maintain.
Being a part of the trailer, the hitch ball can be easily attached to your motorcycle. Usually made up of chrome or other strong metal, the hitch balls of different weight limits are available today. They are removable and hence can be easily changed if needed.
360 Safety Swivel
A 360 Safety swivel gives you the peace of mind needed while carrying a trailer behind your motorcycle. Leaning into a turn is a necessary (and fun) part of riding a motorcycle. Sadly, when towing a trailer, traditional couplers do not allow the appreciable lean needed in a turn, which can cause flipping, binding, or jack-knifing. To help avoid these potentially deadly situations, industry insiders strongly advise the use of a swivel coupler, and we agree.
A safety swivel provides a 360 degree swivel that gives your bike the ability to lean on turns, and provides an element of safety and performance. The swivel hitch coupler is constructed of steel, has a high tensile steel rod and has a black finish.
