    2012 K1600GTL - Anyone installed a tow hitch to their K bike?

    I'm thinking I would like to do some moto-camping next year and like the look of some of the motorcycle trailer tents. Has anyone installed a trailer hitch on a K1600GTL? Any recommendations, tips, pros, cons?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I ride a 2018 GTL. I installed a hitch myself. It was not that hard. I research them all and eventually went with the hitch made by Bushtec. It was the most solid and easy to work with. The wiring took a little research to find the correct color code for my year of bike. There were four bolts I had to find that were longer because I have saddle bag protectors on my GTL. Other than that, it was very straight forward. I did not even have to remove the wheel to attach the hitch.

    Hope that helps. Any questions feel free to shoot me an email at: pilotron46@gmail.com
