you are smarter than that andrew…you know that
Naw man, i'm smart, but being smart sometimes means asking people who do things all the time for input, because just guessing ( and my guess was real close ) could have feasable put people behind me in danger of thier lives on the freeway.
A true sign of real ingnorance and stupidity would be to do something thinking i knew better without asking. I have no experience whatsoever with motorcycle trailers or how to secure something that is significantly lighter than what the trailer was designed for to it.
the dude i bought the trailer from told me to put the center stand down. Ive got some good input in this thread by asking and filterting through the different opinions and using a little critical thinking to judge what i think is right.
Way better to ask then to dump a bike out on the freeway.
