How fast can you tow a motorbike trailer safely?

Take your average single motorbike trailer loaded with an average bike on the back of a bmw 3 series, is it safe to travel at 70 mph on the motorway?

    No and it is illegal to exceed 55mph with trailer and you cannot use the outermost lane (sometimes called the fast lane.
    bike trailers are inherently unstable and top heavy and break into a weave easier than caravans.

    I regularly tow a bike trailer at 120km / hour. So, if the trailer is in good nick, and the bike safely and securely loaded, yup, 70mph is ok.

    The actual speed limit on a motorway is 50 mph. It is safe to pull at 70 but don’t get caught.

    No! its not safe. Also you cannot use the Third Lane to Overtake Limiting your Speed to the Slower Lanes.

    the legal towing limit would be 60mph. Some trailers don’t even want to go that fast, it depends on the quality of the trailers suspension and correct loading of the bike.

    50 m.p.h is the usual limit for trailers

    (A bit slow for a Bmer)

    50mph is the law over that and you risk your license.

    If you are in the UK, the limit is 60 mph on motorways, and 50 mph elsewhere, except where other limits apply.

    Obviously you’ll hardly notice the trailer is there, but remember trailer suspension and damping is very basic. Might not be too stable at higher speeds.

    by law no faster than 60mph,motorways stay out of the fast lane as its a £60 and 3 points….duel carageway limit is 50mph….
    i built a stable trailer that i took up to 120mph with a bike on,,steady as feck,wide low profile tyres…and thats how i know about the fine and points,silly me.

    What you’re actually saying is, “Is it safe to break the law?”

    Well, not really, no…
