    Anyone have experience with the Bushtec trailer hitch for the CCT. Or know of another company that builds trailer hitches for the CCT

    I have one on my bike. I love it! Follow the directions, but don't tighten everything up until you are fully assembled, it might take a little motivation to position everything. I pull a fairly larger trailer with it with no issues.

    Thanks I have used the Bushtec hitch on My 1800 Gold Wing and HD Ultra before and they worked well! They seem a little pricey, but work well.

    Thank you very much for posting this. I was looking into it and waiting until I return home from this deployment to get that part installed on my motorcycle. it is interesting that I work on an aircraft that costs millions of dollars, yet I am very concerned about working on my motorcycle. How much does the Bushtec go for? Right now, the artist that painted my motorcycle is painting the trunk for that motorcycle and will get that delivered to my place.

    Also, for trailers, any recommendations. I found www.theusatrailerstore.com and found a good price. Any suggestions is ways welcomed!! Thank you very much for everything.

    I have never pulled a trailer but love the look of these ones. Yes, I have seen them in person.

    Bushtec seems to pop up alot on the goldwing forums and having a decent hitch on my wing i can see why you dont want to skimp on a cheaper hitch, there are some cheap tubular hitchs for bikes around and they can flex alot and dont support a trailer as well as a good sturdy hitch

    We've pulled trailers behind the different bikes for years. Everything from Cargo to Pop up campers, almost all have pulled well. We had an Aspen Camper with a King size bed that was really too heavy to pull behind a bike. Stopping without ABS was interesting to say the least . Bushtec seems a little pricey but can't seem to find any alternatives.

    here is our Bushtec Turbo 2 . Its a 2006 I bought from a guy local and rebuilt it and had a buddy paint it to match the bike. I also have a Bushtec hitch and wireing harness. It pulls great , if fact you dont even know it's back there.

    Please forgive my ignornace, but what is the difference between the ball hitch and the pin hitch? What is the most common thing for trailers? I notice on theBushtec website, they have a Pin hitch and a Ball hitch. I just want to make sure that I don't purchase the wrong thing. I notice on another website of a swivel ball joint: www.usatrailerstore.com. Thank you very much for the assistance.

    A ball hitch looks like the one you see on most pickup trucks with just a round ball on it. A pin hitch does not turn so it would be used with an articulating draw bar or with one of those single wheel trailers that must lean with the bike to avoid falling over.
