4. Kuryakyn 7642 Motorcycle Hitch
The 7642 Kuryakyn, a very known product, many Goldwing users speak good of it, it’ has all that you need, the hitch is rock solid, the concealed installation offers great strength and rigidity, fits Goldiwngs 2001-2010 if you’re looking to tow some heavy stuff with your GL, this hitch is your choice, this would be my first pick, but it’s a bit hard to install, and the price isn’t very competitive, might need some expertise, but no worries it comes with a full installation kit and some video tutorials that might be handy, other than that the hitch is great and offers superior performance.
5. SLMOTO Vertical Receiver Trailer Hitch kit For Honda Goldwing GL1800 12-17 F6B 13-17
My last pick is the SLMOTO HITCH TRAILER, this one is more likely oriented to that off-budget, and don’t bother having a revealed hitch on their GL, the hitch offers great pulling power, smooth ride, and comes with a full installation kit, but it doesn’t have a concealed installation, Fits Honda GL 1800 2012-2017 and Honda F6B 2013-2017, it has a tongue and a mini ball hitch, the product comes for a very competitive price and offers the same results compared to others in terms of towing and pulling, might a good choice if you don’t wish to invest more than 200 bucks.
If you noticed I mentioned some Hitch trailers that go with GL 2001 -2010 and other go with 2013-2017, If you like the design or the performance of the hitch you can search for the same hitch for your typical Goldwind, many of these manufacturers offer variations of hitches that are suitable to your GL, other than that if you’re a DIYer prepare yourself for a half-day of installation, I know I mentioned that the installation is easy. Still, hey, let’s be honest we’re not all experts, and I honestly enjoy doing this type of installation, and finally, please check for your safety and security your local about towing or pulling with a Goldwind.
