I've looked around the forum and can't find a section to put this so, I'm going to leave it up to the admins to either start a new topic or place it where it needs to go. Looking for info on trailering.
Yep. No shame but I understand him too. I pick my battles. I towed from Houston to Colorado then unloaded the bike, of course my tow rig was a my toyhauler so it doubled as my home away from home. I soon though will throw my dog trailer in the back of the truck and the bike on a lowboy and tow all that to just outside of Phoenix unload it all at my uncles and leave my truck and trailer and then runaway to the west coast for a bit. Believe me I will have no reservations doing that. I've been left and right on I-10 and I will not miss riding on that part but I always prefer to be on my bike just like the OP.I understand that you want to pull a trailer with your bike but there really no shame in putting your bike on a trailer and going somewhere to ride. Now some people will try to shame you for putting a bike on a trailer and going somewhere to ride but being from Michigan I understand that the riding season is not as long as you would like and if you want to ride in the winter you have to go to a warmer climate. I have a enclosed trailer for my bike and I use it at times but I try to ride the bike when I can.
I tow a trailer behind my bike that holds my dogs in it. I got some pointers you can lean on and take it for what it's worth.
Know that towing a bike changes how your bike will react to sudden changes in your flow of riding for example changing lanes abruptly, or even slow turns. My trailer weighs 185 empty and I put about 46 lbs of dogs (2 dogs) and maybe another 25 lbs of stuff. I have pulled down the highway at 70 mph very comfortably and even taken it down some curvy & hilly roads. My fuel mileage has changed very little, maybe a 1-2 mile per gallon loss which is not big deal to me. My trailer does not have brakes so I can't speak on that part but Kuryakyn sells a harness kit that draws power right off the battery and that might help for your brake system. Maybe, I don't know for sure but it just seems you need to draw juice from the source rather than thru the bikes electrical system to avoid any problems.
As for the tongue weight of the trailer as long as it's not more than 50-75 lbs and is within 10-12% of the total trailer weight you should be fine. My tongue weight is about 23 lbs. I weight 206 and my wife 106. I have not felt the need to adjust my shocks at all.
I know my trailer is back there because I can feel some very minor nuances but most of the time with a really smooth road I do not know it's back there.
