Can you tow a trailer with the Spyder that has the old twin engine? In general does towing a trailer put the fear of god in you? I would never tow with a motorcycle even tho I see it done all the time. How much weight can you tow with the Spyder? Thanks!

Yes. But it has to be: Small, light and aerodynamic.
In other words, one made specifically for motorcycle towing.

The weight "limit" for the older models with the automatic transmission would be less because of the way the clutch works. Maybe not even recommended for them; I don't know.

The RT models with a V-twin engine have a "Tow Mode" function that must be activated but, yes, they can easily tow a trailer. The operator's guides explains all about them including the tongue weight, 40 lb, and max gross weight, 400 lb.
